crop emily blueWhere are you from and how long have you been in Boston?
I am from Westlake Village California - I've been in Boston for going on 11 years.

What was your first yoga class like?
I started yoga at home with videotapes - I did it that way for a long time. My first class was a mess. It was hot yoga - I wasn't prepared at all. I was sweating all over the place, sliding all over the place and fell and knocked over my friend. I almost didn't go back :)

What’s your favorite pose to teach?
My favorite pose to teach is bananasana as it's arguably my favorite to do. Helps so much with my chronic back pain.

As a practitioner, what pose makes you cringe?
Sirsasana (headstand).

Where can we find you when you’re off your mat?
If it's at all nice out, when I'm off the mat I am at Jamaica Pond. Come visit!!!

What’s your favorite or the most random song on your class playlist right now?
I don't play music in yin class.

What is sassy reiki?
Sassy reiki is me dancing around the studio waving my arms sending everyone energy :) Basically it's me being a goofball :)
