Meet Libby Parks
How long have you been practicing yoga? I've had a committed practice for about 3 years.
Current happy pose? Plank
Current nemesis pose? Hanumanasana, my ego tends to push farther than my body should go.
What is your favorite food? Cookies
Why do you teach yoga? Service is something really important to me and I've spent a lot of time aligning myself towards that path. I've benefited tremendously from yoga so sharing these practices with others through teaching feels like the right thing to do. I will first and foremost always remain a student and I am constantly learning from each class I teach.
Elvis Presley or Frank Sinatra? I can't go a winter season without Sinatra.
One thing you do every day? Hanuman Chalisa
Brown Rice or Quinoa? Brown rice served piping hot with lots of tahini and avocado. Mmm
What is your favorite bad habit? The snooze button
Good book recommendation? I was very moved by Michelle Alexander's book The New Jim Crow. It's incredibly eye opening. I also recommend: The Ramayana, and Faith by Sharon Salzberg.
What is your best asana tip? Stay curious and never skip savasana.
What is your favorite yama/niyama? Ahimsa (non-harming) always and currently Satya (truthfulness)
