Yogi of the Month ~ Madalyn Overstreet

How long have you been practicing?
A little less than a year

What’s your favorite pose and why?
Tree pose is my favorite because it's the one pose I can count on where my mind is completely still and   I can just be present.

In 10 words or less describe why you love yoga:
Yoga helped me reach peace and simplicity in life. 

How does your yoga practice benefit your other passions/hobbies?
Yoga has become my hobby. I find myself more curious about the origins and different practices. It has helped me break out of my comfort zone.

Why did you start practicing yoga?
I started practicing yoga because a friend convinced me to try it out. I continued yoga because it became a stable thing I could count on to fulfill my day.

How does yoga impact your everyday life?
Yoga has helped me find the positive in any situation presented. I feel more balanced in all aspects of life, personal, work, and physical. The teachers and other yogis have helped me to feel more confident than ever.

What misconceptions about yoga, if any, were changed after you started practicing?
The one misconception I had was that you needed to be flexible. I quickly learned it is all about letting your body be where it needs to be that day. Fully into the pose or just child's pose.

Yoga embraces Wabi Sabi, "the wisdom and beauty in imperfections."
