  7. oopmedi asked: Is there any kind of music you listen to while you're doing yoga? Something that get's you into the mood?

    I’m old school in that I prefer to practice yoga without music. Actually, I don’t even use music while I teach. (for reference, I practice Ashtanga and teach a highly active, free form style of Vinyasa yoga influenced heavily by my studies of traditional Ashtanga yoga)

    Music is fine and lovely, but in my eyes, it’s can be very distracting and inhibits me from observing the quality of my breath. It’s too easy to get caught up in a meaningful lyric and completely lose focus; it’s happened to me and I’ve seen it before in my students…

    Practicing without music is like a form of moving meditation. It might take some getting used to, but it’s worth the effort… As well all aspects of yoga, it’s all about commitment and consistency!

    Luck to you~ ea

  10. yosoraw-deactivated20120611 asked: What's your workout routine? I know you're a yoga teacher and that is a lovely workout but, is there anything else you do?

    Nope, yoga is really it.

    But I don’t just teach yoga, I maintain a daily personal practice as well… research “ashtanga yoga” to learn more…

    And yeah, I would say daily puddles of my own sweat is a “lovely” workout, sure. ;)
