Yogi of the Month ~ Tammy Talbot

How long have you been practicing?
I've been practicing since June, 2016, starting with the 30 days for 30 dollars at Yoga Story.

What's your favorite pose and why?
I think half pigeon pose because the pose is helping open up my stuck hips.

In 10 words or less describe why you love yoga.
Expansive energy floods my body...feeling more alive each practice.

How does your yoga practice benefit your other passions/hobbies?
I love to run and yoga is helping me be injury free, as I had issues in the past with lower back and hip pain while running.

Why did you start practicing yoga?
My lower back was injured while training for the 2016 Bentonville Half Marathon. I couldn't run the HM and I realized that I couldn't keep running if I didn't properly stretch and strengthen my body.

How does yoga impact your everyday life?
Yoga helps me manage the stress of my job and other responsibilities of my life. On my mat I gain clarity and peace of mind.

What misconceptions about yoga, if any, were changed after you started practicing?
I thought yoga would be boring. I love running or walking outdoors alone, and I thought I would feel claustrophobic surrounded by others in a yoga studio. Yoga is definitely not boring, and I really enjoy the community support I feel at Yoga Story! Thanks so much!
