More about me

I love Yin Yoga. I am all in for the slowness, the intentionality, and the mindful practice. I balance that with Spin but only stationary bikes for me. I spend a lot of time reading next to my family of four other wonderful humans. We also enjoy listening and dancing to music together, and traveling to see our family in the west.
