What first brought you to Brandywine Yoga?
My dear friend gave me a 20 for $20 gift certificate. I took advantage of the challenge and loved the results. After the 20 days I knew Yoga was for me.
What does yoga mean in your life? How has it helped you?
Yoga has given me inner calm and enriched my happiness. My life feels balanced.
What would you tell other students who are just beginning their yoga practice?
Yoga is a universal workout for your mind, body and soul. It's your own practice and enjoy every breath.
What do you like best about BY?
I've enjoyed all the new friendships in the community. Each time I leave BY I feel at peace and well balanced. BY also has a lot of options in the schedule for me. I can always find a time that works well in my busy life.
What is your most favorite and lease favorite pose?
I enjoy all the poses. Each and every pose brings a new challenge to the mat each week. I struggle with balance and use my focal point with each pose.
