  Russ Pinkham

Occupation? Equity trader 

Fun fact about you? I have taken flying lessons, piloting a Cessna 172.

Favorite yoga pose? Child's pose! Actually, my favorite is cat and cow pose. Both feel good on my neck and spine. 

When not on your mat, where can you be found?
 I can be found running, skiing in the winter, cheering on
the Patriots, lunching with friends, attending an occasional concert - last one was Lady Gaga. 

How long have you been practicing and what's your latest yoga breakthrough? I have been practicing for about 5 years. My latest breakthrough has been side crow.

How has yoga impacted your life?  A steady practice of yoga allows me to work smarter, to sleep better, and to be more present with family and friends.
