“I’m the quintessential cheerleader. I’ll give it to you straight though. It’s hard work .” the stress of school and being away from home. I fell in love with the fi tness industry. I love connecting to my students through fi tness and especially through yoga. I love the con- nections we form, the victories we share and the time we spend together breathing and moving and sweating and just being. IM: What can people expect from working with you when they’re trying to get in shape? LC: I’m the quintessential cheerleader. I’ll give it to you straight though. It’s hard work. There’s no secret formula, no special tricks, no shortcuts, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! We’ll put on some Bieber and make it happen together. IM: You’ve done a lot of modeling. Was that something that just came together or was it always part of your career goals? LC: It just came together. It was fun and glamorous. I learned a lot and I’ll probably be really stoked to have those pictures of myself when I’m like 90. IM: What does it mean to you to be featured in Iron Man magazine? LC: It’s unbelievably rad. It’s such an honor. I’m still pinch- ing myself. Seriously, thank you so much. I can’t wait to show my daughter! IM: What’s a yoga class like with you in charge? LC: Fun! Lots of sweat, lots of breath, a little meditation and possibly a little Tupac. IM: What’s your main clientele like? Are you directing mostly women, men or a combination? LC: It tends to be maybe 70 percent women and 30 percent men. I’m defi nitely seeing more and more men in the yoga studio in the past couple years and I think that’s awesome! IM: You can’t look at your social media without really noticing all the impressive yoga poses you post. What’s it like for you engaging with fans and followers on social media? 48 JUNE 60 SEPTEMBER 2017 | 2017 ironmanmagazine.com | ironmanmagazine.com
