Student Spotlight: Samantha Rivera

How did you find out about Soul Flyte?

I discovered Soul Flyte through an online search for AntiGravity yoga in Rockland County. I don’t know what led me to choose Soul Flyte over the other studios listed in the search results, but I am so glad I did!

What’s something you can't live without? 

I would have to say my pets, specifically my two cats. They have been with me through my hardest times, and they still love me.  (As long as I feed them on time.)

What brought you to try your first class at SF? 

I have been wanting to try AntiGravity yoga for a while, and the range of classes available sounded exciting. 

What’s your favorite time of day?

Noon is by far my favorite, especially on a gorgeous sunny day!

Do you have a favorite pose at SF?

 I feel like I'm constantly changing my mind on this one, but at the moment it's the Harrison Handstand.

What’s the best meal you've eaten? 

My dad’s homemade manicotti with his incredible pasta sauce

Favorite thing about coming to Soul Flyte?

I've met such incredible people by coming to Soul Flyte.  The instructors and fellow students have an awesome range of personalities that add a great vibe to each class.

Would you recommend it to others? 

I already have!

Favorite/best place you've traveled to: 

Canterbury, England. I hope to go back some day!

What's your favorite book? Movie?

My favorite book is Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk.  My favorite movie is actually a bizarre tie between “Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay” and “Unbroken”.

What's the craziest thing you've ever done? 

Do my college years in general count as an answer? I'm going with that.

Anything else you want to share?

Becoming a student at Soul Flyte has seriously changed my life for the better. I have scoliosis and an autoimmune disorder (yay, genetics!); both of which were so bad that I was in constant pain, inactive, and just plain miserable. I feel like a different person now, thanks to the physical and mental aspects of practicing AntiGravity yoga with Shira, Leigh, and Emyli as my instructors.  (Hopefully I'll get to have a class with Jenevieve, Robyn and Ruth someday soon!) I'm healthier than I have ever been before, and I am so thankful that I made Soul Flyte part of my life!
