What are your hobbies?
I enjoy playing tennis competitively, cooking, travel, snorkeling/scuba, golf, and going to educational workshops.
What is the best book you’ve read?
“The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. It has pearls of wisdom written in simple language but deals with complex themes that can help people make sweeping positive changes in their lives.
What do you do to get away from it all?
Hiking in the mountains really does it for me. But I also enjoy walking knee deep through the water along the beach. Getting a massage is another wonderful way to get away.
What is the biggest misunderstanding about yoga?
People think that you need to be flexible and they feel intimidated and have a misperception that it is all about the physical but it’s so much greater than that. Others have a belief that it is a religious practice.
What is one thing you’d like to do?
Kite surfing. It looks so freeing and so much fun zipping through the water.
Who - or what - makes you laugh?
Watching puppies play together in a pet store. I recommend it for anyone feeling depressed.
