How did you start yoga?

I took my first yoga class in college and my father was beside himself, “your paying college tuition to take a yoga class?” And it was a college course. In my first class I fell asleep in savasana. Ever since then I have been doing yoga, at home, or at at studio, or with an old DVD, in a VHS player. Some of them I still have in the basement and my kids make fun of me. But, I can’t get rid of it, it was my first one! I would do yoga in the bedroom upstairs and when the kids knew I was upstairs they would say “don’t go up there otherwise she will make you do it with her”.

What was your greatest challenge?

I remember when I started taking Bikram for a while and it was challenging. I’m not going to let this get the better of me, but the more I had that kind of attitude the harder it was. I finally gave in and realized I had to humble myself and realize I had a lot to learn, and then the practice started becoming much better.
