What do you love about Greece? I love the Mediterranean, and there is something very magical and inspiring about Greece. I can’t wait to explore more of it.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you: I often pet/housesit when I travel and have stayed in many different places this way…this is how I found Lynn!
Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga? Online classes so far, but I will be at her Paros retreat this year!
The first time you tried Kundalini Yoga: In 2009 I went to a Kundalini class with a friend, not really knowing what to expect. I had been doing hatha style most of my life, and it was very different from that. We sang mantras and did a very challenging kriya with dancing. I recognized this was a powerful practice that could help me process emotions and strengthen my nervous system. I kept going for years and eventually did teacher training myself in 2020 in Mexico.
Tell us your top tip to combat climate change: Pay attention to every choice you make and get curious about alternatives. Practice gratitude and respect for life, be willing to constantly educate yourself, and evolve your habits. Lowering the energy consumption in your home, eating less meat and dairy, and minimizing plastic packaging are great places to start.
Anything else you’d like us to know?: After Lynn’s retreat in Paros, I will be traveling in Greece for a bit. I am looking for a few different things– 1) volunteer opportunities- ideally with animals 2) short language or art courses 3) or any suggestions on places to stay or visit! 🙂
