What does yoga mean to you / how did you come to find yoga?My first experience with Yoga was at an in-store class at a lululemon store. Yoga to me is a practice of mastering your mind and your emotions. I’ve found that I can choose to respond (instead of react) to circumstances that allow myself to grow on and off the mat.

What made you become a teacher?It was only a matter of time. I was working for a yoga studio for over a year and I had expressed interest in becoming a teacher for nearly a year. I never took any action until one of my friends complete his teacher training. I got inspired by the transformation he experienced for himself.

Why do you love the concept of Yoga&Hops? It’s a culture of fun. A great way to meet people. It also transcends the practice of yoga beyond a traditional studio from breweries to sporting events. My first experience of being at a brewery was through Yoga and Hops.
