Wanderlust: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Keeley Crowfoot: A food critic. I watch a lot of cooking shows and would love to get paid to taste the best world’s best chefs food.

WL: What did your child self want to be when you grew up?

KC: My child self wanted to be exactly what I have become; a psychologist and a yoga teacher. I have recently completed my doctorate in psychology and teaching yoga was one of the ways I was able to support myself throughout graduate school.

WL: What is your biggest fear?

KC: Not being good enough. I often theme my yoga classes around the idea that we are inherently “enough.” Little do my students know, I am the one in the room that may need to hear it the most.

WL: What has been your most embarrassing moment as a yoga teacher?

KC: I was doing a wellness cleanse and was in the phase that you re-introduce foods to gauge if you have a reaction or not. I was having a VERY gassy reaction to whatever I had re-introduced. It was a long 60 minutes for me and my students if you know what I mean!

WL: What do you love about what you do?

KC: Giving of myself freely. I love coming to the mat with poses that I am working on or working with themes and yoga philosophy that I am grappling with. Every class is a genuine reflection of what I am experiencing in my life at the time.

WL: What challenges you about what you do?

KC: Giving of myself freely. Because my classes are so personal I constantly have to push myself to be vulnerable, honest and open. My fear of judgment wants to hold me back from giving that piece of my heart and soul so it is a constant challenge to put myself out in the world in such an open way.
