How tall is your tallest friend?


If you could change your height, would you? Why or why not?

I’d stay just as I am. I don’t feel excessively tall, like I stick out, even though I am taller than most people I know. My mom’s a powerful 5’2” which taught me from an early age that height alone won’t give you a commanding presence or other people’s attention and respect.

What is the most difficult piece of clothing to find for yourself?

T-shirts! Before TallSlim Tees, they were rough to find. If they were long, they were bulky. If they extended below my waist during normal activities, they lifted up every time I raised my arms overhead (which for me is something I do a lot :-))

What is your favorite piece of clothing that you have?

In winter time, it’s the Henley. The rest of the year, it’s a slim fitting T-Shirt.

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

While I can’t name names, over the course of my yoga teaching career, I’ve taught Emmy-, Grammy-, Oscar- and Tony-award winning performers. But mostly, I work with everyday people, especially those with a few extra aches and pains; we find a way to handcraft yoga practices that fit them for exactly who they are.

Any advice for your fellow tall man?

A little health- and relaxation-oriented PSA for men over 6 feet: in order for us to optimally increase our heart-rate variability and balance our nervous system, we have to take fewer breaths per minute than our shorter brethren (approximately 3 ½ breaths per minute vs the 5-6 breaths per minute that others are suggested to take).

That's all from Al - thanks for reading!
