Claudia Mata, Jewelry and Accessories Director
What: I've been practicing yoga for several years, and I usually prefer a faster-paced, power flow, but some days if the mood strikes, I'll take a more stretching-based and meditative class. I do always ask for extra focus on the abs, my weakness.
Who: I can't say enough good things about my yogi (and husband) Zander Gladish, who has gathered quite a following for his ability to transform your body. My ultimate (yet lofty) goal is to be in as amazing shape as he is!
Where: He is available for private and semi-private classes (zandergladish.com) or also teaches at various studios around the city like Yoga Vida, SLT, Circuit of Change, Yoga to the People, etc.
Gear: For my clothing, comfort and ease of movement with my clothing is key! As for gear, I prefer a more cushioned yoga mat and am loving the one from MyCustomYogaMat.com. Every time I bring it around, I always get asked about it—everyone loves a monogram!
