What do you do when you're off the mat? 

I love to garden play golf and shop.

What brought you to BY for the first time? 

The yoga studio I went to before closed and my friend suggested Brandywine

What's your favorite thing about the studio? 

I love the atmosphere. All the instructors are amazing and the other yogis are great. It is a very welcoming place.

What's your advice for someone coming to yoga for the very first time?  It is not as easy as you think! Just relax and do what you can. Don't worry about what  everyone else is doing. Whatever you can do will make you feel great.

What has your yoga practice given you? 

It has given me physical strength and time to dedicate just to myself. It is my time to take care of  me!!

What's your favorite pose? 

I love Triangle pose and Shoulder Stand.

What's your least favorite pose? 

Any balance

Tell us something unusual about yourself.

Love to binge watch!!

What three words would your best friend use to describe you? 

Caring, funny and crazy

What's your guilty (or not so guilty) pleasure? 

Chocolate of course

Have you made any big changes in your life as a result of your yoga practice? 

Dedicating time for myself!

If you were having a dinner party and could invite anyone you wanted, who would you invite? 

My mom because I miss her everyday! My sister because she lives 3000 miles away and don't get to see her enough. My 2 daughters because I love spending time with them.
