Sheila Moore, y’all!
MP: Who do you admire? Why?
SM: I admire my teacher Jenn Chiarelli. I studied with Jenn in Arizona and completed my 200 YTT with her. She inspires me to be authentic and to explore the gifts within myself and share them with others. Through her guidance, I have become the yoga teacher that I am.
MP: What is your favorite pose and why?
SM: It’s hard to pick just one! I guess Natarajasana, Dance Pose is one of my favorites. I love the grace and beauty of the posture. It’s a multi tasking posture…shoulder opener, hip opener, heart opener, quad stretch, and balance all rolled into one!
MP: What is your most meaningful training to date or where have you trained?
SM: Most of my training has been in AZ. My most meaningful learning experience to date is a retreat in Costa Rica. Jenn (my AZ teacher) led the retreat. I met some amazing yogis, and connecting with the beauty of the island enhanced the joy!
MP: What is your favorite book?
SM: I’m and avid reader, generally reading book a week. It’s too hard to pick one, so I’ll share my favorite genres…contemporary fiction and historical fiction. My favorite series is Outlander by Dianna Gabaldon.
I just started watching it on Starz, and it’s very close to the actual books. My husband surprised me with the first four books of the series for Christmas years ago. I’ve read them all and can’t wait for the next one.
MP: What is your favorite song?
SM: Right now I have two, but i can’t choose an all time favorite. Colors by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Bridge Over Troubled Water by Artists for Grenfell. I stumble across these while making my latest playlist and they’ve been on repeat since!
MP: What is your favorite “Yoga Gem?” SM: meditation bolster! I started 300YTT with Rolf Gates last month, and I’m really trying to find a strong meditation practice. The bolster makes sitting for long periods of time so much more comfortable!
MP: What is your favorite indulgence?
SM: Wine and Cheezits! My go to wind down treat after a crazy day!
MP: What classes do you teach at Melting Point and which is your favorite?
SM: Tuesday 9AM Core & More and Tuesday 6PM Deep Stretch. My favorite is Core.
