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.
