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."
