~How did yoga find you?

I found Yoga, or as one may say, Yoga found me when I was in a very challenging point in my life and I was really questing the meaning of life and what is my purpose. After seeking for guidance and attending different seminars about transformation, I met a man that was very different. I was very intrigued by him and was interested in what he was up to. He invited me to his studio he guided me through a yoga class and I was blown away, I was home, and the rest is history.

 

~How long have you been practicing yoga?
I have been devoted to the practice of yoga for a solid 6 years now.

 

~How long have you worked for NS?
I have been apart of the N.S. Family for just over a year now and I am so grateful.

 


Three essential ways you take care of yourself?

Three essential ways I take care of myself is meditation, nutrition, and clothing. Every single day no matter what I do my daily meditation, ideally first thing in the morning. I sit with myself, I tune in and connect to my true identity, and I quality myself, I set the tone for the day; who I want to be, what I want to be up to, how I want to be seen, how I want to carry myself, what type of impact I want to have, what new challenges I want to take on, etc… Nutrition is key! As they say, 75% of your webbing is based on your nutrition, and are made in the kitchen! Two staples to my first I would like to share is 16oz of celery juice every morning on an empty belly, and also wild blueberries, which are great in smoothies. Lastly my clothing, the clothing I choose to wear is how I express myself. And it is import to me to wear all natural clothing that is good for my energy, and the clothing I choose to wear represent the identity I am choosing for myself.

 


Where is your favorite place to be?

With all honestly my favorite place to be is in Aquarian sadhana at my teachers home in San Diego. Aquarian sadhana is a early morning devotional practice with prayer, yoga, meditation and chanting. My teacher has been holding this special practice in his home every morning beginning at 3:50 am. When living in San Diego I attended every morning for 2 years and went through so much healing and cultivated a deeper understanding of truth.

 

What is a goal you hope to accomplish this year?

In this next year what I hope to accomplish is to create financial prosperity. To do what it is I absolutely love and be able to thrive from it. Which is serving people by sharing the teachings and creating clothing, sacred clothing inspired by the cultures that came before us and to evolve their ideas.

 

We love you, Deg!

How did you find yoga?

I found yoga in the midst of dealing with a lot of divorce drama between my parents. Being a support system for both of them, I felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders. My time spent on my mat and in class lessened that weight little by little.

How long have you practiced?

About 4 years

How long have you worked for NS?

I started working in the cafe as an ambassador in June 2017 and quickly dove into my teacher training the following September. I’ve stuck around ever since, and you’ll often see me behind the cafe or teaching classes!

How did you find yoga?

Yoga found me during a time of devastating loss. I intentionally sought out yoga as a means of healing and in looking for a studio I found NS. What came next was a transformative yoga practice, a community, a means of not just surviving, but finding beauty, grace and lots of inspiration! I feel like NS has allowed me to grow and become my most authentic and highest version of me… always a work in progress though and never finished!

How long have you practiced?

I had a longtime dabbling practice, but as of 2016 it’s become an integral part of me. I cannot imagine where I would be without it. My mat is my safe, honoring, healing and my favorite place to be!

How long have you worked @ NS?

It all started with my Love Bulb project and Kristin’s willingness to support that by selling them in the cafe. “What’s next” is the question she always asks me! What’s next was the Grief Gathering and Storm ambassadorship in the Community Garden and most recently being part of the Teen Series. I’m actually part of the soon to graduate class of NS “Root to Rise” Teacher Training! The Garden is resting and dormant now but the days are getting longer and as spring comes it will soon be time to grow! Stay tuned as all are welcome to join me in the community yoga garden! So grateful for the opportunities that NS has brought to my life and cannot wait to see what’s next!
