Where you from? What types of meditation do you have experience or interested in gaining experience?

I am originally from upstate New York, but spent the past 8 years in Vermont. I have studied many kinds of meditation, and have been practicing yoga since I was a child. My mother is a Kripalu-Certified yoga teacher, and I grew up attending retreats with her at the Kripalu center in Lenox, MA. Although I love me a good bikram class, yoga for me is about releasing, relaxing, rejuvenating, and becoming more balanced mentally and physically. The only reason I haven't done more of it in a group setting is because classes here are too expensive, and I cannot afford to take them consistently. I am desperate to do consistent movement that takes the pain out of my body, and the stress out of my mind.

Favorite hiking spots?

Rock Creek Park, Harper's Ferry, WV

Favorite outdoor spots in the DC area?

Rock Creek Park, Georgetown Waterfront

What committee(s) are you interested in serving on? (Events, Education, and/or Sponsorship)

Education

Do you have experience as a teacher in yoga, meditation, or a similar practice?

I was a ballet dancer for 18 years and have taught dance classes. I know yoga well, but have not been certified. I would be confident in leading a basic silent meditation.

Introduction

My name is Frieda and I moved the area last September. It has been a whirlwind of a year, and I feel like I am still new to the city. I work on the Hill and am in desperate need of fun that does NOT involve Hill politics. Free exercise? I am down!
