Favorite part of yoga?
Yoga is my peace. With school and work, life can be extremely hectic and stressful. Yoga amazingly focuses my mind and my body, and requires me to slow down and breathe.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in a suburb of Dallas, Texas—a place that is VERY different than DC. There’s not a lot of Texas in me, though. Except for football… I love football.

Favorite restaurant in DC/VA/MD?
Sticky Rice on H Street. Sushi chef Jason is incredible.
One day I really hope to go to Barcelona, Spain.
Favorite yoga pose and why?
Upward dog. I love that it is a heart opener, a back bend and stretches the entire front side of my body all at the same time.
