Team Player of the month: Gretchen Straczewski

Favorite part of yoga?
My favorite part of yoga is that I ALWAYS feel better after going to my mat.  I have never finished a class thinking, “Man, that was a waste of time…”
Where did you grow up?
I’m a local!  There are so few of us.  I grew up in Rockville, MD, went to Holy Cross in Kensington, and now live in Annandale, VA.
What are your top 3 hobbies?
Cooking, Reading, and a new one: Sewing! I am taking my first class next month!
Favorite restaurant in DC/VA/MD? 
Oceannaire!  Mostly because I have celebrated a lot of special occasions there, and whenever I am craving seafood (a frequent occurrence), I know I can get what I want there. And that tray of pickled fish and veggies they bring before your meal? Heaven.
Dream vacation or favorite vacation you’ve ever been on?
I would love to go back to Denmark where my twin sister and I studied abroad during
our senior year.
Favorite yoga pose and why?
Reclined twist.  I also adore the assist that comes with this pose!
Three people, living or deceased, who you’d invite to the same dinner
My Mom, Ronald Dahl, and Frank Sinatra (for my Mom).
Favorite holiday?
Favorite album or artist? 
Paul Simon, Graceland.  It reminds me of being a kid and cutting the grass while wearing Dad’s Walkman. Paul Simon is also my absolute favorite artist to see live.
