When I’m not practicing/teaching yoga I’m: doing my day job and blogging.

Often heard saying: ‘It’s good for you!’ and sometimes ‘How close are my feet to my head?’

Where you’ll start to see me sweat: Parsvottanasana.

Where you’ll start to see me cry: Setu Bandhasana.

Trips to Mysore: 2 and counting.

Trips to other places: too many and counting.

Favorite yoga quote: Sutras 1.13-14 Practice is the correct effort required to move toward, reach and maintain the state of Yoga. It is only when the correct practice is followed for a long time, without interruptions and with a quality of positive attitude and eagerness, that it can succeed.

Secret Yoga Desire: To find my practice off the mat.

Teaching Style: Practical minimalist.”
