Today Brooke and I went down to the harbor for a vinyasa flow.

I’ve always been a big fan of yoga for its benefits spiritually and physically. Yoga as a whole is a great practice for getting in tune with your self. I love weights and grinding it out in the gym, but yoga adds a unique element to muscle conditioning. Most serious and even professional athletes will tell you, yoga is one hell of a challenge.

Watch as Brooke breaks down three poses she believes are essential to a good yoga practice and get a peek of her boutique on wheels!

Here’s what Brooke had to say when we sat down to talk about her yoga experience…

Why did you get into yoga?
“I got into it because I had ADHD and it was really difficult for me to focus. I used yoga to gain focus and piece of mind. The mental and physical work out really interested me. Also, I was a figure skater and it was my off ice training.

I ended up liking yoga more than skating to be honest. “

“What do you hope your yogis get out of your class?”

“I hope they leave at ease. With peace of mind. Ready to take on their day with new strength. With lean bodies and centered minds. My favorite thing is to see yogis in savasana in my class. So relaxed.”

“You’re a vegan… Tell me a little bit about how that has impacted your practice?”

“I feel more energized, healthier, lighter. My skin is clearer. I think I became a vegan through yoga, because yoga taught me to be a more compassionate person. One of the 8 limbs of yoga is ahimsa, which stands for non violence. With that mind-set I’m just a much happier person.”

“Being vegan isn’t easy, but you make it sound so awesome. What advice do you have for people who are interested in making that lifestyle change?”

“If you think you might be interested in it, great! Just don’t jump into it. I was a vegetarian for 9 years. Becoming vegan is a process, but it’s definitely a goal that you can attain. Take it on with baby steps. Meal plan! In today’s world it is a lot easier to be vegan. There are a lot of options if you do your research.”
