I had a great run in Paris, walked every show I could've wanted to walk Chanel, McQueen, Galliano, Givenchy, YSL, Gaultier, etcand was so lucky to have done a bunch of advertising campaigns, including a fairly conservative designer, Nicole Miller had me on a 50 foot billboard in Times Square I left fashion and spent my savings to build out a 7, square foot loft space with 9 bedrooms, music recording studio, art spaces, sewing room, etc. It's been a major dream of mine since I was pregnant 16 years ago to have land and community with a permaculture food forest with sensible and sustainable energy and waste systems. Now, in my personal practice, I do more restorative yoga than active asana. I'm pretty excited by what's coming to light, because a lot of what's turning out to be crucial for healing really is accessible, like relaxation.
What is it about restorative yoga in particular that you are passionate about?
I went to Naked Yoga, and this is what happened
I attended the Yoga Therapy program at Loyola Marymount University, where I got to study various forms of therapeutic yoga for a year with an incredible cast of professionals with practices as diverse as spinal surgery to dance therapy. Our muscles and proprioceptors nerves in the joints that read the angles between limbs and maintain a map of the body to tell us where we are in spacecan hold old trauma and patterns even when we think we've broken free from the past. But, after working as a waitress for a year, and after two years of art school in NY, when I found myself actually living in Paris and doing the job, I started to question the whole industry paradigm, and to wonder if it was worth it to be in collusion with an industry which I couldn't support ideologically. My body heats up, my blood pressure drops, I can feel my breath quicken, but I walk through the door anyways.
