Favorite Yoga Pose?
If we have to choose one each, Warrior Three and Headstand - you'll have to check out the picture to figure out who chose which one! Really any pose that goes with the outdoors!
When not on your mat, where can you be found?
Around Brookline or along the Cape Cod National Seashore!
How long have you been practicing and what's your latest yoga breakthrough?
As a regular practice, really since moving back to Brookline 3 years ago and we both agree CCY has been a great influence!
How has yoga impacted your life?
It's hard to come up with a specific impact, but it has helped Norma with some recent injury recoveries. For us yoga fosters and supports a healthy mind-body balance, from starting the day (Neal is a 6:30 a.m. regular) to ending the workday (Norma aims for 4:30 p.m. or 5:45 p.m. classes) or weekend midday "dates" together!
