20 Questions with Lili Cohen

April 29, 2016

Recently, we got to play 20 Questions with Local Collective member, Lili Cohen. Before you read the interview you should know, Lili is one of those bright lights that you’re not really sure what to make of upon a first meeting or as she sits in front of the yoga room. She is bold, dynamic, tall, impressive, loud and smiley. She’s the one with the big hand gestures and the funniest stories. She is honest and not afraid to embarrass herself.

How often do you stop and take a moment to witness the extraordinary beauty around you? How often do you dull yourself to not make others feel bad? How often do you just close your eyes and take a big, bold, beautiful breath? How often do you play? How often do you question what you think of as truth? How often do you listen to that feeling in your gut, in your heart, or in your throat? What if the answer was everyday? YOU get to chose. This was originally posted on Mandy’s website.
