My favorite part of yoga is the calm that I feel when I walk into the studio or in the midst of a yoga class. Since I spend the days with third graders, it’s one of the only parts of my day where it feels quiet. At the same time, I love the energy that I feel from being in a room full of yogis.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Morristown, New Jersey.
She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb. I read this book in high school and loved it, so I recently reread it and it was just as good.
I love food! My favorites are sushi and pizza and bagels from New Jersey.

Favorite restaurant in DC/VA/MD?
Tachiibana in McLean or Dehli Club in Arlington.
Dream vacation or favorite vacation you’ve ever been on?
My favorite vacation that I have taken is to St. John in the Virgin Islands. My husband and I have visited a few times and have wonderful memories of our times there.
Favorite yoga pose and why?
My favorite pose is probably wide leg forward fold. It always feels good!
My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. It’s the one time of year that my entire family is together. Growing up, we always had Thanksgiving at my Nana’s house in New York. We have had some of the same Thanksgiving dishes for over 30 years now and always have at least 6 or 7 pies!
