Hannah Drake, REAP 2013
Hannah is an English major from Nashua, NH. In addition to her passion for yoga, Hannah loves to read, write, ski, exercise, and confesses that she laughs at cheesy jokes. Below, she speaks about the work she is doing for her REAP project:
For my REAP project, I will be immersing myself in yoga culture and writing about my experiences. I am participating in a 30-day Bikram yoga challenge, meaning I will attend a Bikram yoga class (for 90 minutes in a room heated to 105 degrees) every day for thirty days. After this venture, I will be exploring other types of yoga practice as well as researching the origin and science of yoga itself. I will be blogging about my experiences, interviewing fellow yogis and yoga studio owners, and compiling my findings into an ethnographic research essay.
