[wp_ad_camp_1] Congratulations to the lucky and talented winners of Yoga Travel Tree's #findYOGAanywhere challenge! These yogis showed dedication, motivation, style, and confidence by sticking with the challenge from day 1 to day 31. We want you to get to know these lovely yogis like we got to last month, so we sent them out some questions and invite you to meet our winners!
Next up in our winners interview series is Sonja Moseley, or as you might know her, @sonjarhae
1. How did you get into yoga?
I had done yoga here and there for a couple years, but was feeling very out of balance last year with long hours and little exercise. I joined Corepower in Maple Grove and now I go almost every day! After only a month of membership, I felt like I was part of a larger community. I love that many of my teachers know my name and make me feel welcomed.
2. What’s your favorite style of yoga and why?
Right now I do a lot of hot vinyasa, but am interested in Ashtanga.
3. What’s your favorite way to travel?
Light and off the grid. I live for remote places with out the ordinary accommodations.
4. If you had a superpower what would it be?
Breathing underwater, definitely.
5. What’s the most ridiculous thing that’s happened to you in a yoga class?
I flipped over in a supported headstand. Oops!
6. If you could travel anywhere on earth, where would you like to go and why?
Anyone who knows me knows that I live for travel. I have been to every continent, except Antarctica, but I plan to go. If I had to pick somewhere today, I would say Palau or Papua New Guinea. Palau has always been on my diving bucket list. Papua New Guinea just seems so exotic. I would love to swim in Jellyfish Lake!
7. Tell us a memorable yoga experience:
My husband and I were at my parent's house about a month ago with my brother and sister-in-law. After a long day outside, we got on the topic of yoga since it was the first day of the #findYOGAanywhere challenge. Before I knew it, we were all taking turns spotting each other in headstands, handstands and forearm stands. We had a great time and I found out my sister-in-law is a yogi. We just booked our tickets to Wanderlust- Whistler!
8. What’s a personal goal you’ve accomplished in the last year?
I went back to school and finished a graduate degree last spring. I now have a Master of Nonprofit Studies, which is like an MBA of the nonprofit world. As a trade association director, this has proved very beneficial. My next professional goal is to become a Certified Association Executive.
9. What is one of the most inspiring places you’ve traveled? Why?
Where do I start? I find most places inspiring in their own way. If I had to pick one place, I would say Southeast Asia. I have been to Indonesia (Bali and Lombok), Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. Something about the culture, landscape, architecture and food spoke to me. Bali was especially beautiful with its abundance of temples, lush landscapes and extraordinary diving. On the other hand, Laos was less touched by tourists and was spotted with orange-robed monks and green mountains.
