WJ: What aspects of yoga/meditation/spirituality do you bring into your work?
JP: I aspire to bring all of the above into all of my work and my life! It seems counterintuitive to separate yoga from work. Of course, that is easy enough to say as a yoga teacher - where asana, meditation, and a spiritual practice come naturally; however, I like to maintain this focus as a small business owner, as well. While some executives might find it challenging to bring a sense of oneness, mindfulness, and sacred moments at work, I've found that business flows much more smoothly and is more lucrative when we serve from an inclusive, grounded, and authentic space. Tapping into intuition is a key to prosperity in every expression.
WJ: How did you get involved with yoga?
JP: Through a sutra of somewhat haphazard events and wonderfully inspirational yoga teachers.
WJ: What's your favorite pose?
JP: Savasana. (Isn't that everyone's?;)
WJ: What's feeding your wanderlust today?
JP: I'm in Hawaii being fed by the mana of the land and the the sea and the anticipation of teaching yoga on liquid at Wanderlust Oahu 2014!
WJ: If you could leave one legacy for your community what would it be?
JP: Anything is possible.
Focus on the light.
Surf with Spirit.
Drown in delight.
