NEW YEAR MANTRA
"Focus less on changing parts of yourself and more on the parts that are already awesome. My new book, Every Body Yoga, is full of other positive affirmations."
"Kathryn Budig. She's so honest and forthright about her practice, which is rare in the yoga world. A lot of people fabricate their lives and act like they're perfect, but she admits her flaws and complications."
"Solange speaks to me. Her music is very operatic—it can carry you through a whole class. She allows you to create a melodic experience."
"I'm a mat encyclopedia. My favorite is the JadeYoga Harmony mat. It's bigger than average—even if you're smaller-bodied, it's nice to have more space. It's also made from a natural rubber so it has a great tread."
"RxBars and dried baby pineapples from Trader Joe's."
