I stay in balance by…
“Yoga practice is a fundamental part of my day to keep myself in balance. It sounds quite simple; however, when I feel super stressed, emotional or agitated, actively reminding myself of the blessings in my life is a great way to shift my mind set.”
Go-to yoga pose…
“Prasarita Padottanasana (Wide Leg Forward Fold). It’s an amazing stretch through the lower body, a lower back reliever and a great semi-inversion to flush the mind by allowing extra blood to pump to the brain.”
Top tip for a successful yoga practice…
“Don’t compare your practice to other people in a class! When postures feel too difficult, close the eyes and try not to overthink or judge your physical body. Just come back to your breath and let the body flow.”
