One. What is The Works to you?

The works to me is a unique combination of mind body and soul. I believe each entity is an equal part of what makes this practice whole. It’s not just movement. It’s not just heart. It’s not just meditation. It takes all of these powerful parts and pieces them together to create a practice like no other. It allows me space to move with my body, not away from it. It has opened doors for me to sit with myself and not immediately want to squirm. It has also given me the opportunity to connect with myself in a real and raw way that I never found before. That’s the soul part. That is what has been missing for me before the works.

Two. What’s playing in your head phones?

Mumford and Sons, the Lumineers, Bornes and east Forrest get my in my feels. Griz, the floozies, Macklemore, and anything bey and jay get me hyped. I’ll stop there. My music list goes on forever as I spend lots of my spare time employing my Spotify trying to find new music or songs that have been lost from my repertoire in recent times. Music is what moves me even on the days when all I want to do it sit.

Three. When I'm not sweating I'm...

slinging drinks at Mex 1, jamming out anywhere and everywhere, or traveling across the world. I also love my cat Sukha, so if I’m at my house, I’m hanging out with her.

Four. Come to me for...

the opportunity to feel things. There is no doubt your body will be worked, but your heart and your head will meet your body there. It’s the purest and deepest form of connection—when we can feel it from within. Clear mind. Open heart. Strong body. That is my intention for all of my classes.
