Occupation other than YF instructor: Retail Manager
Live with:Husband Gabe
Pets?:The Dread Pirate Roberts, puppy extraordinaire
Favorite time of day:any time classified as “my time” and I take it when I can get it
I first tried pole dancing/fitness in: April, 2009 because: I ran out of excuses not to try it.
I keep coming back because:despite my prejudice against it I found out I have a passion for it
A favorite pole move: anything with a handstand in it, I love the intense focus it requires for safe execution!!
Favorite song(s) to Flirt to: Oh my, do you have an hour? Pass That Dutch, Baby Got Back and Drop it Low are YF classics. Release is delicious. Hero of the Day is great for drama. I’ve always got something cooking… can’t wait to reveal my juicy new find!!
Other hobbies/interests:Karaoke parties at my place, hiking all over the Central Coast, hanging out with girlfriends one at a time or in bunches
A book I would recommend reading: Looks like we’re going to need another hour… I’ll just say In the Meantime by Iyanla Vanzant had a profound effect on the way I experience life.
What is your spice of life?:Humor and the laughter that follows
How do you celebrate the successes in your life?:Involuntarily, the happy dance. I like high fives too, but seldom remember to do them!
What brings you joy?: When I’m able to see the miracles that are happening around me, and recognize them for what they are.
I’m passionate about: I’m an extremely passionate person… if I love something it is super obvious. One thing I’m passionate about is the benefits of Yoga Flirt to any woman that is ready to revolutionize her thinking while working up a sweat.
5 things I can’t live without: here’s 5 things I could live without but would rather not: husband, puppy, cheese, socks and lip balm (the first 4 were suggested by my hubby and I agree)
But could easily give up: any and all types of chronic pain
Last time I laughed so hard my sides ached: Why was the scarecrow given an award?
Because he was out standing in his field! HAHA!! I’m so easily amused…
An inspirational person in my life: The ladies I’ve come across in level one of YF that are so afraid at first, and then become free and begin to fly!! I’ve been known to get a little misty in class…
A pivotal moment in my life:Just as with inspirational people in my life, there have been many… the latest one was asking for a lot of help for my physical and mental pain… and getting it.
Final thoughts: I can’t begin to stress how much I love Cathy for giving the Central Coast such a divinely inspired gift. Yoga Flirt is a game changer, and we’re SO LUCKY to have it here. I have seen literally hundreds of women come through the doors of the studio and, even if they’re tentative or afraid or even just a tad ornery because they got talked into coming by a friend, they soon begin to rave about the difference in their bodies, their relationships, their hearts, minds and spirits. Come see us, get loved, get sweaty, get strong, get inspired, learn to express your true self in a safe place.
