10) Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s community? Everywhere that Lynn has been organizing yoga classes, including YouTube videos, except the retreats and that is only because they take place after school (I work at an international school as administrator and ESL K-12 Coordinator) has started!

12) Anything else you’d like us to know? As I love quotes and Socrates, I am sharing some quotes which inspire and guide me:
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
“I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.”
“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
“I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.”
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all!”
