What is your favorite food? Pizza & cookies

The band you can’t live without? Chromeo

Most empowering moment? Depends on what phase in my life you are referring to and what the circumstances were to make me feel this way! I felt really empowered when I chose to move to Paris on my own after college, when I moved into my first one bedroom apartment, and any time I've left a job that wasn't serving me.

If you could travel anywhere in the world right now where would it be and who would you bring with? Aruba and my dog, Kovu

When you aren’t teaching yoga, what can you be found doing? Cooking, riding my bike, walking the dog
