The month of December brings us Tammy, who spent her first class wondering why on Earth she paid $30 for a month when the one class would have been $15…and she was positive that one class is all she needed! Much like all students of the month, Tammy now finds herself in the studio 4-5 times a week.
Her favorite poses are any that she accomplishes (which is, of course, the best yogi answer EVER!) but she especially loves Eagle and Fixed Firm. And although Standing Head to Knee is the most difficult for her to maintain, she feels extra determination in Standing Separate Leg Pose. Like many yogis, Tammy really, really wants to get her head to touch the floor!
She’s been married for 19 years and has a daughter and stepson. When she’s not being an enthusiastic soccer mom, traveling with her daughter, she works as a resource for families looking for senior care options when moving a loved one into independent living or assisted living, home care, hospice, Alzheimer’s or dementia care. From head to toe, Tammy is a kind citizen and thoughtful yogi.
According to studio owner, Chelsea, Tammy always arrives with her ‘determined’ face; giving it her all. “She is one of those moms who is ‘fit for life’ and has a strong energy. I love having her at our studio and can’t wait to see where her practice will take her…maybe someday to teacher training!” That seems like it might a great fit for Tammy, who says that she loves the attention she gets from instructors. She feels that when she hears her name in class, it’s a sure sign that Chelsea and the other instructors want to see her “succeed and receive the maximum benefit.” Seriously, another super spectacular and perfect yogi answer!
Thank you so much, Tammy, for sharing your practice with all of us! Namaste.
