tYp Yogi of the Month - September 2013 - Stephanie Magnien Rockwell
Q: Where are you from?
A: I've lived in LA since I was 19 and grew up in Cypress, CA
Q: Why did you start practicing yoga? How often do you practice each week?
A: I started practicing yoga to help stay balanced both body and mind. I went back to school a couple of years ago and that combined with working full time really had me stressed out. Practicing yoga helps me stay centered. I practice about twice a week.
Q: Have you noticed any changes in your life since you started regularly practicing yoga?
A: I am much stronger mentally and physically.
Q: What do you like most about attending classes at tYp?
A: I like the sense of community. I appreciate that all of instructors I've practiced with know who I am and I like seeing my fellow students grow along side me.
Q: What are your goals for your yoga practice?
A: My goal for each practice is to challenge myself without ego- to push myself but to know my limitations.
Q: What is your favorite yoga pose and why?
A: Happy Baby- a fun, relaxing pose to stretch my hips which are always tight.
Q: What is something you'd like to reveal that people don't know about you?
A: I had my 30th bday party at an indoor trampoline park and it was awesome!
