5Q Interview @Ambez_MotoYogi!
1. Tell me about your personal journey with yoga. Why is it important to you?
I came to yoga about 7 years ago. It was initially a social workout with my colleagues at lunch time. It soon became much more than that and transformed into a lifestyle. I enjoyed learning the intentions and nuggets our teacher would share during class that would spark a movement within to be better and stronger as an individual. It gave me a drive to be the best version of myself. Now as a teacher I try to give my students those same “aha” moments and give them new motivation to evolve and grow as an individual.
Having a blast in Turks soaking up all this beauty. Can’t get enough! “Be shore of yourself. Come out of your shell. Take time to coast. Avoid pier pressure. Sea life’s beauty. Don’t get tide down. Make waves! #livepositive #turksandcaicos #beachesturksandcaicos #MrandMrsOrmando2015 #vrkasana #treepose #nofilter
2. When did you first begin teaching yoga? What made you transition into a leadership position?
I began teaching almost 2 years ago. I embarked on the teacher training journey more so for myself than to teach, but quickly began to enjoy the role of teacher. It not only holds me accountable to maintain my practice, but also gives me so much satisfaction to see and hear the progress in my students.
3. What makes your classes unique?
I am fully invested and present in the space with my students and feel the energy I bring really connects to them. The environment in the studio is most important to me. Giving them a safe place to practice, themed with well thought intensions and music to coordinate and tell the story each class.
4. How does music benefit your guidance in a yoga class?
I’ve always been guided by music. I love the sounds and beats and how they take over inside. I spend a lot of time on my playlists crafting them to have the energy that I’m looking for in each class. Whether it be slow and mellow, earthy and grounding, meditative, etc. I feel the music sets the tone and pace and completes the class.
5. Tell me about your next event and where we can follow you online.
No events scheduled at the moment, but you can visit me every Wednesday at HYHY for a candlelight HPF at 7:30pm.
