May Bad Yogi Spotlight: Meg Ledoux
Q. What Country/State are you from?
Hey! I am Meg, from Brussels, Belgium.
Q. What is your Full Name?
My full name is incredibly long: Megane Coline Bn dicte Luce Ledoux!
Q. How would your closest friends describe you?
I guess my friends would describe me as a sensitive and clumsy girl that loves to sing and dance when not supposed to.
Q. How do you find motivation when it feels like you have NONE?
It’s easier for me to find motivation when I have none, actually. I prefer to do something for its sake rather than in order to accomplish something bigger. When I practice yoga, ‘to lose weight’ for instance, it’s hard to get me on my mat. But, when there is no other purpose than yoga itself… I’m right there!
Q. What do you think your purpose is?
I guess that my purpose is to be an eternal student, regarding every aspect of life. Some past events have slowly defined another purpose that might sound simplistic but, I just want to be a good person. Even though I don’t really believe that there are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ people. I want to do my best.
Q. Do you feel like you’re living it?
I’d say that I am living it fully!
Q. If all food was ‘health food’ & there were no negative health impacts, what would you eat everyday of your life?
I would definitely eat Belgian chocolate everyday of my life if I could….well, actually I do!
Q. Chair pose for 1 minute or Plank pose for 1 minute?
Both! But not at the same time!
Q. What’s one fact that may surprise people, or that not many people may know about you?
I have never been drunk. And, I can’t tan – my skin doesn’t change color.
Q. What do you wish you would see more of in the world?
I wish I could see more empathy and kindness in the world.
Q. What do you love/appreciate most about the Bad Yogi community?
What I do like about the Bad Yogi community is the non-judgmental approach to yoga & health that Erin and Adrien have created. I also love the genuine support of the members, it’s a real community, even though we live miles away!
Q. Why Yoga?
Yoga didn’t come very easily to me, I was very judgmental. “It’s not really a sport, but some kind of relaxation for old people” is probably what I’ve heard the most. And, what I was thinking too. But, when I finally started practicing – Yoga is a way to move everyday at every little occasion, with intention.I am literally practicing yoga all the time: while cooking, blow drying my hair, waiting for the bus, anything fancy. Wherever I can be aware of my body and when the pose suits the situation! ”
