Fun fact?
Rome 2016 - inadvertently locked in the gated courtyard of Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore midnight Easter Morning. Outside the gates were armed soldiers with machine guns. Got lucky and made it out undetected.

Favorite yoga pose?
They are all a challenge but to pick one - WHEEL

When not on your matt, where can you be found?
Maybe at Audubon Bar with my nose in a book trying to learn a new language.

How long have you been practicing and what's your latest yoga breakthrough?
About ten months. "Namaste", for the longest time it was just a word I felt awkward saying. It has recently started to take on meaning. I know it has always had meaning, but when I say it now something resonates.

How has yoga impacted my life?
Improved flexibility, strength and posture. A greater ability to roll with the punches and a deepening of mind body connection.
