Dave & Jen Gallant

1. When & Why did you start practicing yoga?

Dave- I started practicing at the Bikram studio about seven years ago after giving up looking for the red or blue pill to fix my hip/low back problem.  It worked but the intensity eventually started causing other injuries.  I stopped for almost a year and then found Elements.  I love the people and variety of classes.

Jen – I just started practicing yoga a few months ago! My job (and my sanity) requires me to be very active. I realized that if I didn’t start taking care of my body I wouldn’t be able to continue doing what I love to do.

2. What do you love most about your yoga practice?

Dave – I like the opportunity to focus on my breath.  I also like jumping out of bed in the morning without needing to hold onto something while trying to straighten up.

Jen- I love how it always brings me a sense of calm. 

 3. Are you currently facing any struggles or challenges within your practice?

Dave – A few aches and pains but they keep me coming back.

Jen - Being a newbie I know I have a lot to learn!

 4. Favorite pose?

Dave – Current favorite: Cat-Cow. Current need the most but can’t do: any one legged bent over twisty pose!

Jen-  Downward facing dog.

 5. Would you share a favorite quote with us?

Dave - “Out beyond the ideas of right and wrong, there is a field. I’ll meet you there…”-Rumi

Jen - “Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.” -Maya Angelou
