What does Yoga mean to you?
Yoga is being fully alive in the present moment.
What is the secret to a happy life?
Be at peace with your mind. Contentment is a more realistic approach to life. Happiness, sadness, anger, loneliness…they are all a part of the experience and can bring tremendous release and growth. Being happy all of the time would lose its sweetness.
What advice would you give your younger self?
Stay covered in the sun. Dance more.
What are you grateful for?
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
Who are your heroes in real life?
Real life heroes: I think Bernie Sanders is great. I admire Jane Goodall. People who work hard and think for themselves.
If you could be any animal, which would you be? Why?
A whale. It would be fun to be so big, intelligent and to just eat seaweed and krill all the time. Imagining swimming from Alaska to Mexico underwater with your family!
What is your current state of mind?
Creative and hopeful.
What is your mantra?
Om Namah Shivaya
