Teacher Feature ~ Judy Moss

Judy teaches Hot Flow every Friday 6 am.

Favorite pose and why?   Savasana at the end of practice.  It's a chance for my body to absorb the practice I just did and allows my mind to settle and become centered. 

First introduced to yoga?  I went to a Bikram yoga class in San Francisco with a friend because I was looking for a good cross training program. It was only after moving back to AR that I went to a vinyasa class and fell in love with the practice of yoga and all that it is.  

10 words or less on why I love yoga?  It's a constant living, breathing practice of balancing the mind and body.

How does my practice make me stronger?  It makes me stronger by keeping me grounded in my center.

How do you remain grounded outside the yoga studio?  Meditation is a big part of my life along with taking time to care for myself.  My family also keeps my feet on the ground and we spend most of our time together. 

Advice to beginner yogi?  There is absolutely NO such thing as being bad at yoga.  The only thing that yoga requires is that you show up for yourself. Yoga is for EVERYbody. That's it...there is no "type" and you don't have to be flexible to begin yoga. 

Mantra or intention?  Be here in this moment and honor the body

Biggest misconception about being a yoga instructor?  How much goes into bringing a class together.  It's a balance to make the class both accessible and challenging while holding space for the practitioners. 

One healthy food I swear by and why?  Smoothies.  It's easy to throw in fruit/vegetables and protein without having a heavy meal.
