This month our student spotlight is Crissy Konior. She's been coming to Soul Flyte since January and is about to hit her 100th visit! She's getting stronger in every class and is such a pleasure to be around! See her interview below:
How did you find out about Soul Flyte?
My amazing friend Jenni told me about soulflyte back in the Fall while we were in Puerto Rico. I was intrigued because she was doing all these crazy yoga poses in our hotel room and on the beach and I was like "where'd you learn that?"
What’s something you can't live without?
This is a tough one, if I had to pick one thing I'd have to say music, because no matter what kind of mood I'm in, I can listen to music and either chill myself out or get energized. That was kind of deep. I also think I'd throw a fit if Chapstick didn't exist.
What brought you to try your first class at SF?
While out to dinner on New Year's Eve, my friends Jenni (who told me about SF) and Melissa told me to try it as my New Year's Resolution. We all signed up for a Restorative Class together later that week and I can honestly say I've actually kept my resolution this year!!
What’s your favorite time of day?
I am certainly NOT a morning person, but I'd say late afternoon or evening depending on the time of year.
Do you have a favorite pose at SF?
I have a few! I love Chandelier, and recently I've learned this super fun flying comet, star swinging combo in Flying Fitness.
What’s the best meal you've eaten?
Anything related to Pizza or Tacos.
Favorite thing about coming to Soul Flyte?
Challenging myself everyday in class to push myself harder, seeing myself getting stronger, and of course, the awesome flygirls and Instructors I've met in class.
Would you recommend it to others?
Favorite/best place you've traveled to:
No matter where I've been there's no place like NYC.
What's your favorite book? Movie?
Don't laugh, my favorite movie is Twister, yes the one from 1997. My favorite book, I would have to say is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson.
What's the craziest thing you've ever done?
Run into a burning building (I was a volunteer firefighter for a few years).
Anything else you want to share?
If you've been thinking about trying Soulflyte and haven't yet, it's definitely worth it, for so many reasons you can't even imagine.
