Get to know them
I meditate anywhere from 10-60 minutes (depending on my day) as soon as I open my eyes. I do Nauli Kriya and dry brushing, take a shower, take some supplements and I’m ready for my day. Sometimes I’ll do my yoga practice early in the morning, and sometimes later in the day, depending on my schedule.
What's a book you read that made an impact on you?
Many… but if I have to say one that comes to mind at this moment I will say “Lifespan: Why we age and why we don’t have to” by David Sinclair.
I have an oat latte in the morning before anything, but I usually don’t eat until I practice, or at like noon, I like to have acaí or berry bowls with fruits, nuts, and hemp protein, or Oatmeal with nuts and fruits. To supplement I take Vitamins C & D, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Hyaluronic Acid, NMN, Collagen Hydrolysate, fish oil, and BCAA complex on the days I work out.
Again, I have many… but this is one of my favorites that is coming up at the moment. “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” – Theodore Roosevelt
Life Goal in this moment:
I’ve never been a goal planner or oriented person, but my every day goal is to live as healthy and aware as I can so I can share my experience with others that are looking to have the same way of life.
What inspires you?
If you could change something about the actual world, what would it be?
I’d get rid of humans! (Joking) (half joking) I’d have nature and the planet be the priority in everything we do.
Relationship with nature:
A very committed one! ;)
Mental approach to a hard situation during your practice:
Everything comes, arises, and passes away!
How do TRIIBE'S Products make you feel:
I have been taking the “Recovery Trio” every day for the past few weeks. I can not only feel less sore after workouts, but I can also see a difference in data in my recovery index, resting heart rate and HRV which was surprising and exciting to see. The more I learn about the main ingredients in these supplements, the more I love them!
