    1. Describe what you have learned through your yoga practice in one word.

    Endurance (both physically and mentally)

    2. Where have you experienced breakthroughs on and off the mat?

    Yoga has been transformative for me.  I’ve really embraced the concept of “going to my edge” or “finding my limit,” and this has led to breakthroughs on and off the mat.  On the mat for obvious reasons; I enjoy pushing myself to try new poses or hold old ones longer and it really amazes me how my limits can change or expand from day to day. Yoga has changed my attitude toward physical activity; I’ve always been very active, but I’m not sure I’ve always put forth as much effort and concentration. It’s definitely a noticeable difference physically; I feel a lot stronger.  Outside of yoga I also find myself employing these same concepts of limits and edges; I can run or cycle longer and stronger, and even in my creative activities (I’m an artist) I feel more of a motivation to push myself to my creative limits. It’s really amazing what yoga has done for both my mind and my body.  I love it!

    3. If you could have one super power, what power would you choose?

    Teleportation!  I’d be somewhere warmer and sunnier…until time for yoga class, of course.

    4. What is your favorite quote?

    Not all those who wander are lost. –J.R.R.Tolkien

    5. What advice would you give to a new Mogi?

    Don’t be discouraged if you feel less flexible or less strong than the people around you. Everyone starts off feeling that way, just keep going and you’ll be amazed at the change that will happen inside (and outside) your practice.

    1. Describe what you have learned through your yoga practice in one word.

    LOL!  I’m not known for my brevity in speech! One word? …PERSISTENCE

    2. Where have you experienced breakthroughs on and off the mat?

    I’m astounded by the changes in my body: I’m stronger, leaner, and so much more flexible in ways that I never knew were possible.

    Off the mat, I’m amazed at how focusing on my breath has transcended the yoga studio.  I like to play tennis a couple of times a week. When practicing, especially during cardio, I’m far more cognizant of my breathing; when pushed to my limits, I try to regain my even and calm breath.

    On the mat, I’m excited to finally work on my headstand.  I wasn’t confident enough in my own strength for quite a while and avoided the pose. But when I grew bored with shoulder stands and felt that I was no longer challenging myself, I decided to take the leap.  It’s so much fun to have a new challenge!

    3. If you could have one super power, what power would you choose?

    Is balance a super power?  For me, it just might be.

    4. What is your favorite quote?

    “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” – Elizabeth Taylor

    5. What advice would you give to a new Mogi?

    Keep at it! The sheer effort of walking through the door to take that first class required the greatest amount of courage. After that, it’s nothing but pay off. You will be amazed at the changes that you see and feel in one week, one month, three months…I can’t wait to see what one year brings!

    1. What is the most powerful lesson you have learned through your yoga practice?

    A combination of patience, strength and understanding. Strength because you are always stronger than you believe yourself to be; and, well, patience and understanding can get you through pretty much anything that comes your way. 

    2. What is your favorite yoga pose?  Least favorite?

    Dancer!!!!! I absolutely love this pose (Followed by wheel as a close second). Least favorite? Perhaps, half pigeon. I’m getting better at it; but, sometimes it’s still difficult or really challenging for me.

    3. If you could be the star of one cartoon (TV or Movie) what star would you be? 

    I did two internships with Disney Entertainment in Orlando, FL and was very good friends with Ariel.  *;) winking

    4. What do you love about practicing yoga as a community?

    Sometimes you can pull strength from others.  Others can also serve as motivators.  I think I most enjoy some of the funny moments.  Especially the roars.  Shared experiences help to form and strengthen bonds.  The community may be small (with respect to the size of Morgantown); but, I always enjoy seeing the same friendly faces. *:) happy 

    5. Do you make resolutions?  If yes, what is one for 2014.  If no, why?!

    I usually make the same ones every year. a) Be kind to everyone you meet. b) Do what you can to be happy. c) Learn something new every day. I have yet to break them.

    6. What is your advice for a new Mogi?

    Allow yourself to try new things on your own and don’t be afraid of falling. You might surprise yourself and find a new passion. I had been wanting to try hot yoga for years; but, I was waiting to find one friend that wanted to go with me. Finally, I made the decision to try it myself and now I’ve actually gotten some of my friends to give it a try. Also, you’ll be amazed at how fast your body will change. I’ve been exercising for years and dancing since I could walk; but, in the few short months (end of September/beginning of October was when I started hot yoga at Po_Yo_Mo) I’m amazed at how strong I’ve gotten and how much my body has changed. I was so excited the first day I took flight with crow pose. Just the other day I was able to take Birds of Paradise. Tiny accomplishments that I was proud of. I’m still working towards my handstand, though. *;) winking Your body is capable of doing amazing things. If you treat it right and fuel it right, it will surprise you.
