In The Easy Chair: Lisa Kodzis


AGE 29

OCCUPATION Paddle Surf RI instructor and Heart of Avondale yoga instructor.

RESIDENCE Westerly.

BORN, RAISED & GREW UP IN Westerly, Westerly, Westerly.

FAVORITE WAY TO SPEND MY TIME At the beach with the family.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT Brian, Adi and baby on the way.

WHAT I HOPE TO BE REMEMBERED FOR Being compassionate.

TOP ITEM ON MY BUCKET LIST A visit to a family ashram or a family surf and yoga retreat.

ALWAYS IN MY POCKET Unfortunately, the phone, especially during the summer.

WHAT I WANTED TO BE WHEN I GREW UP Housewife.

PERSON OR EXPERIENCE THAT HAS INFLUENCED ME THE MOST Dharma Mittra (my yoga teacher in New York City), who’s constantly changing my perspective. Thank you.

FAVORITE AUTHOR Silly, but ... children’s author Eric Carle.

LAST BOOK READ “Moo, Ba, La La La!”

FAVORITE SONG Tough question, but I’d have to go with a Bob Marley song. Always projecting love and a positive vibe.

FAVORITE MOVIE Any comedy. Currently “21 Jump Street.”

FAVORITE TV SHOW No TV in the house for about two years now, but it would be good old “Seinfeld.”

FAVORITE PET Brandy, our first dog.

FAVORITE FOOD Sort of opposites but Italian or Mexican (remember, I’m pregnant).

AMOUNT OF TIME I SPEND A DAY ON FACEBOOK 0.

TRAIT I MOST ADMIRE Grace.

PET PEEVE Wet towels.

FAVORITE QUOTATION “Don’t postpone joy.”

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT OUR LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD The beaches in September.

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT Family and Evian water. I’ve become addicted, always carrying a bottle.

LITTLE-KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME I had planned on moving to NYC, then met Brian and traveled to the Caribbean, Oahu and Maui. Happy I didn’t end up in New York.

BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED Don’t do anything you wouldn’t want your grandparents to know about.

ADVICE I BEST LIKE TO GIVE Everything happens for a reason; everything is perfect just how it is.

IF I RULED THE WORLD I WOULD Oh, where to start ... everything organic, green, simplified.

IF I WON THE LOTTERY, THE FIRST THING I WOULD DO IS Buy a tropical property.

I DRIVE A Gray 2006 Toyota minivan.

I WISH I DROVE A Hybrid.

ALWAYS IN MY FRIDGE Fruit.

IF I COULD HAVE DINNER AND A CONVERSATION WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD I WOULD CHOOSE Bob Marley.
