Yoga Instructor Morgan Malia Warrior 3 Pose

Morgan’s been practicing yoga since high school!

1. What’s one thing most people don’t know about you? I was a competitive cheerleader in high school and started my yoga practice during my sophomore year when I’d go practice with my journalism teacher in her classroom on our lunch break. 

2. What is your go-to “healthy” snack or meal? What is your go-to “treat”?
I’d say one of my favorite staples is organic bone broth with pasture-raised eggs dropped in, and topped with turmeric and cracked black pepper. Super nice after an evening workout! Favorite treat – dark chocolate with sea salt!

3. What are your top 3 favorite exercises of the moment?
I try to move my body in as many different ways as possible and bring a “yoga mindset” to all of it. The more fun the exercise, the more likely I am to do it (bonus points if it’s outdoors!) At the moment, I’d say my top 3 are trail jogs, climbing, and night swims in Barton Springs. 

4. Describe your health and fitness philosophy in ONE WORD. Why that word?
BALANCE. Everything in moderation, including moderation.

5. How will clients feel after working with you? 
Lighter; physically, mentally, emotionally.
