Victoria Clarke -Yogini Extrodinaire
Maitri – What originally drew you to your yoga practice?
Victoria – I’d always been interested in trying yoga, and when Green Mountain Yoga opened in Five Parks, close to where I live, I grabbed one of my daughters and brought her along to try it with me. It was wonderful, and I begain to go whenever possible.
Maitri – How does your practice benefit your career?
Victoria – I think yoga helped me physically by improving my flexibility and balance, as well as mentally–especially when we practice being present in the moment.
Maitri – What is your favorite aspect of yoga?
Victoria – How I feel after each class: happy.
Maitri – If you could share anything with a non-practitioner, what would it be?
Victoria – I am always trying to get my husband to come with me to a class. I tell him it will make feel better. That he too will be happier. I have yet to persuade him…but I’m not giving up.
Maitri – Just for giggles what is your favorite asana posture and why?
Victoria – Favorite: I love moon salutations; I rarely move laterally in my daily life, and the moon salutations get me moving laterally.
– Least favorite and why?
Victoria – Least Favorite: Fire Log/Double Pidgeon; because it my legs are not flexible in that way.
