One. What is The Works to you?

The works to me up front is strong movement. Causing both physical and a mental shift. It’s meditation, tears, Joy, laughter, all squeezed into a magical mix of heat and sweat. We leave it all on the floor, get up and press the refresh button everyday.

Two. What’s playing in your head phones?

Who isn’t playing? All I need is a good beat

Three. How did you find yourself on the mat?

I started practicing my sophomore year of college, I liked the idea of a different “workout”. I couldn’t figure out why I wanted to keep going back, but I started to feel it not just in my bones , but my head and my heart. That was it for me. I knew I had to teach it and share this goodness with as many people as possible.

Four. A quote or song lyric that speaks to you.

Sometimes you have to hold your head under water to remember how to breathe.
