Favorite part of yoga?
Practicing, teaching and assisting.
Where did you grow up?
I was raised in a big family (I’m # five of six) in Amsterdam, N.Y., a small town in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains with a robust community of generations of Eastern European immigrants.
Faith by Sharon Salzberg. “Faith,” Sharon says, “is the animation of the heart that says, ‘I choose life, I align myself with the potential inherent in life, I give myself over to that potential.’ This spark of faith is ignited the moment we think, I’m going for it, I’m going to try.”
Or meal? Cold pizza for breakfast.
“At one glance I love you with a thousand hearts.” ~ Mihri Hatun
Rouge Baiser #421, which I wear when I practice, assist and teach yoga.
Favorite restaurant in DC/VA/MD?
Giardino d’Oliva @ Tyson’s Corner.
If you could take a yoga class from any teacher in the world (living or dead), who would it be?
Restorative yoga with Judith Lasater, who advocates a 20 minute savasana, minimum. It’s a juicy yoga siesta.
Three people, living or deceased, who you’d invite to the same dinner party?
Tina Fey, Neil deGrasse Tyson and my kindergarden teacher, to show her how the little girl who danced around the classroom as a monarch butterfly turned out.
