How long have you been doing yoga?
I had never been to a yoga class before my daughter asked me to go with her to a class at Be Still Yoga when she was visiting at Easter this year. I tried the 30 days of classes deal and got hooked! I now try to attend several classes a week and love it!
What is your favorite class and why?
I enjoy all the classes, especially the Yin classes because they make me feel so relaxed and stress free. Beth's voice is so soothing and the message she shares is always uplifting and gives me a sense of tranquility. The other class I really like are the Fusion classes because they encourage me to push myself and get my body moving! It feels good at the end of class, knowing I'm increasing my strength and endurance.
What is your favorite yoga pose?
I seem to hold a lot of tension in my shoulders so one of my favorite poses/stretches is the cat and cow which gives me a great stretch in my back and shoulders.
What keeps you coming back?
I may not be that graceful and do not always know which pose to do; however, I love the laid-back classes and all the people! Beth makes you feel welcomed and walks you through all the movements so it's fun and feels great to move. All the other yogis have been so friendly and welcoming, so it is a new community of friends.
What would you tell someone who is considering trying yoga?
Please, please try it! I never thought I'd enjoy yoga as much as I do and I love how it's helped me feel better, stronger and healthier in mind and body! It relaxes my mind and gives me inner peace that helps me feel much more relaxed.
Share some of your hobbies, your favorite things to do, or something unique about you.
I love to be outside taking my dog, Summer, for a walk or hike. I also enjoy tending to my yard and flowers. I like to listen to audiobooks while walking or reading a book when I have some quiet time. I enjoy traveling and exploring with family and friends.
