Yogi of the Month ~ Chandra Holt

How long have you been practicing?  4 years

 

Any advice on how to make time for practice with a busy work/family schedule?  Plan ahead and make it a priority.  I always have my yoga mat and a change of yoga clothes in my car in the event that I can squeeze in a class during lunch or after work.

 

Describe your yoga practice in one word: Restorative

 

How does your yoga practice benefit your other passions/hobbies?  I'm a runner and I do crossfit and I've found that yoga is one of the best ways to recover from workouts and also helps prevent injury.

 

Why did you start practicing yoga?  4 years ago I wanted to increase my flexibility so I started doing yoga once a week.  I got injured a year ago and found that yoga helped my recovery so I started going as much as possible and can usually make it 3-5 times a week.

 

How does yoga impact your everyday life?  Yoga helps me achieve balance.

 

What misconceptions about yoga, if any, were changed after you started practicing?  I thought yoga was just for really flexible people.  I practiced in the back of the room for a year before I felt comfortable that I wasn't going to look ridiculous. 


Teacher Feature ~ Milo Fish

When were you first introduced to yoga, and what got you hooked? 14 years ago & I was immediately hooked because it was the first time I really began to breathe.

 

What made you decide to become a yoga instructor? I just got it... I knew I could teach it in a way that people could use the tools to live differently.

 

What's your favorite pose? Child's Pose

 

How do you remain grounded outside the yoga studio? Eat right, sleep 8 hours, weight train, walk/run, have an amazing group of friends & wonderful family

 

What advice do you have for the beginner yogi, other than only focus on yourself?

Keep your focus on your breath & how your body feels.

 

What does your personal practice look like these days?  As of right now my personal practice is focused on full body engagement. Working my entire body in every shape/pose.

 

One healthy food you swear by, and why?  Salmon, makes my skin glow.
