“Yoga for me has been the practice of learning to say ‘yes.’”

SELF PORTRAIT

Holly Krepps

DATE AND PLACE OF BIRTH: Dec. 13, 1964, Little Rock

I WANT TO EAT the food I grow.

I WILL BLESS THE DAY I: I am already blessed! Both of my sons are independent and fully capable. To sum them up, they’re both radically fearless and service-oriented with amazing work ethics. If life was to take me out today I would know I am leaving two amazing, contributing beings on this planet who can take care of themselves. How can you be more blessed than that?

MY FANTASY GATHERING WOULD INCLUDE Krishnamacharya, Richard Rohr, Thomas Merton, St. Theresa of Avila and my husband. That would be a really dynamic gathering.

FUN IS my life.

WHAT KIND OF SHOES DO YOU LIKE? I prefer to be barefoot, but when not, you will see me in boots. I have a lot of boots, more than can be explained to my husband.

WORK ON A FARM IS soulful. It’s a full engagement in the cycles of life.

THE SECRET OF LIFE IS say “yes” to what’s real. Say “yes” to what’s happening.

ONE WORD TO SUM ME UP: audacious

“She has a lot of the experience of purpose in life. She’s not searching for what her soul is for. She knows.” — Matthew Krepps

JASPER -- The same breeze that lifts her great black Friesian's rippled mane is plucking at Holly Krepps' hair, too, as she tries to explain why horses are "the best" teachers at Circle Yoga Shala.
