This week we got up close and personal with NYC local, Lauren Imparato. Check out what she had to say below:
Where do you currently live/primarily teach? NYC! But I am always traveling - mainly to Europe, London, Latin America.
What first comes to mind when you think about NYC? Organized, beautiful chaos.
What’s it like teaching yoga in New York? Straight up and real, just the way I like to teach my classes.
Best yoga pose for New Yorkers? Sun Salutes. Movement and stillness in one to break a sweat and have a moving meditation simultaneously.
What are you most excited about for this years YJ Live! event, and what will you be offering? Excited to bring some I.AM.YOU.! I will be teaching 3 workshops: 1 a general I.AM.YOU. flow, which is an anatomically focused sweaty and structured vinyasa to a tailor made MusicMix by I.AM.YOU.'s Resident Mixologist 2- Detox to Retox, a 90 minute detoxing and cleansing I.AM.YOU. flow followed by a 30 minute nutritional coaching seminar and Q & a. 3 - The Business of Yoga, focusing on marketing, branding and making a profitable and powerful niche for yourself in a crowded market.
Favorite thing to do in NYC outside of the studio? Wine, dine, stroll and laugh.
Go-to Big Apple “guilty-pleasure”? Without any guilt - pizza and chocolate chip cookies.
Anything else that you’d like to add about this year’s Yoga Journal LIVE! in NYC? It's gonna be hotter than ever.
