Aside from teaching yoga at our Hive, what drew you to Montauk and what do you love most about the East End?
I’ve been coming out to Montauk since I was a kid. There is something special about the way the sunlight hits the ocean as you drive east on Montauk Highway into town. The East End has its own unique color palette, many artists have tried to capture it. I never get tired of the light or making that drive.
Why do you think yoga is an essential part of our Montauk / Hamptons community?
Yoga is community. For a little while we share space, breathe, sweat, and find some peace together. The faces I see in class are the same ones I see around town, at the beach, and out at night. We’re all connected through our yoga practice.
