I was born and raised in New York City. I grew up on the streets of the Upper West Side and never thought I’d live anywhere else. But in 2001, the beaches and mountains of Southern California worked their way into my heart and my mind, and I moved across the country. There’s no doubt you can take the girl out of New York, but you can’t take New York out of the girl.
I love the yoga community in Los Angeles. West Coast yogis are informed, inspired, active, loving, and committed to making the world a better place. And then there’s the really funny stuff, too. Here are a few of the things I've learned after more than 10 years of being a West Coast yogi:
1. Instead of drinking coffee in the morning, you do breath of fire.
Because, y’know, coffee is acidic and throws your pH levels way off. And you’ve read about a guy who exists on air. He doesn’t even drink water. And he’s like, 112 years old, or something. So you can at least forgo the coffee.
