Why I am a yogi: I believe that yoga is an immensely powerful healing modality and a profoundly wise practice that can help people attain an astonishingly high level of physical, mental as well as spiritual health. And it's FUN, too!
What gives my life meaning: Assisting my patients and students in their journey toward ever-improving well-being and wholeness.
Heroes: Close to home: my husband, a deeply committed and compassionate physician who works incredibly hard every single day to make the life of his patients and their families better in every way he possibly can. Not so close to home: Nelson Mandela, who, despite 27 years of harsh imprisonment, was able to stay free within and not lose hope and faith and strength in himself and others.
My favorite yoga pose: Tree Pose
Musical influences: Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, and W. A. Mozart
