Mighty Yogi of the Month: February 2016

Name: Sydney Stowe

Occupation: Hopkins Center Film Manager

Favorite yoga pose: That one where move your feet far apart and bend over to stretch putting your hands on the ground (from there, the really talented people go into headstand)

Yoga is…always a surprise and a relief

What do you love most about yoga? It challenges me mentally, emotionally and physically

What fuels you? Humor, gratitude and Mexican Cokes

My NON-guilty pleasure is…Sleeping

What makes you Mighty? A belief that I am strong of body and spirit

What’s your yoga story?  How did you start practicing?

A persistent hamstring issue required some therapeutic action–I foolishly thought yoga was more like "paid stretching" so I showed up, got my ass kicked and was hooked.

If you had a super power what would it be and why? I would be able to dispel/alleviate some of the fear in people. Everything we want is on the other side of fear.

When I wake up in the morning, I always do these two things…make coffee and look out my windows at the trees

What's the best advice you've ever received? "Some things in life cannot be fixed. They can only be carried."
