Yogi of the Month

March 2023 Yogi of the Month


Dong has been practicing yoga for 17 years and has been with our YogaSpark community since moving downtown in 2019! Her smile absolutely lights up the studio.

Q: How long have you practiced yoga and what other forms of exercise do you like to do?

I started practicing yoga regularly in 2006 - cannot believe it has been 17 years. I run twice a week and like exercises with my kids for fun- hiking, swimming, etc

Q: What brought you to YogaSpark?

When our family moved to downtown in 2019, I passed by the studio everyday. After took my one-week intro trial, I know I’ve found my tribe. I love the welcoming community and the instructors I am proud to call friends now.

Q: What do you love about practicing hot power yoga?

I love the hot yoga glow you get from practicing – exercises in the heated room helps with increased blood circulation and indeed makes you spark.

Q: Can you give a word or phrase that describes yoga to you?

A moving meditation. As the sign at the studio states, “Hot body, Cool mind.”

Q: What's your current favorite song to flow to?

I don’t really have one favorite song- I like the various playlists curated by our instructors.

Q: Do you have a favorite quote?

It’s not about being good at something, it’s about being good to yourself.

Q: What yoga pose do you love practicing right now?

Wheel pose is the one I am working on now. And my forever favorite pose is Savasana

Q: Tell us one non yoga factoid about you.

I love to cook and try new recipes - cooking is my in-home meditation. If you have a good recipe, please share with me.
