We live in a world where people are quick to place things into boxes. However, we encounter people, places and feelings where definitions and parameters are difficult at best to peg.

We know yoga as a Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline; a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practiced for health and relaxation.  The dictionary defines trill as a quavering or vibratory sound, especially a rapid alternation of sung or played notes. However, we know trill to mean something more. Trill is more commonly known as an adjective used in contemporary pop culture to describe someone who is considered to be well respected, coming from a combination of the words "true" and "real".

Most would think that the two concepts would never be in the same sentence, let alone, the same phrase. We have Claire Fountain to thank. Creator of Trill Yoga, the New York transplant (Jackson Mississippi native) took the best of the worlds she connected to the most and creative an unorthodox lifestyle that is good for mind body and soul. We sat with Claire Fountain to speak about her style, and mission to change the yoga world as we know it forever.

Where can people reach you on social? 
C: @cbquality and @cbqualitylife on twitter.

Let’s get right to it. What’s your “hustle”? 
C: I’m a yoga teacher and wellness educator with an unconventional approach. I started Trill Yoga as a way to break the stereotype and stigmas of yoga and show that’s it for every body and anybody. It’s for the many that yoga isn’t marketed to currently. It will be.

What is your ideal workout look from head to toe?
Monochromatic. A comfy bra. Maybe a track suit.

What are some things you do to keep/maintain an active lifestyle?
My lifestyle is active without meaning to be. I'm far from obsessive but I move a lot, walk everywhere, always take the stairs two at a time, and make lifting weights and yoga a priority. My dog helps too. 

At what point did sport become a part of your life?
I've always been active but I wasn't athletic outside of competitive swimming. My family is athletic and I'm more creative but I started yoga and lifting weight as a teen and never stopped. 

What do you look for in a sports bra?
Fit. It cannot be too small and smash my boobs. It has to be soft and have total range of movement. 

Talk to us about the kind of coverage you need and your experience (good or bad).
I've had to stop work outs before because I thought I was going to give myself a black eye. Obviously. I need a lot of support, but fit is more important because a lot of my work is low impact. Yoga isn't tossing the girls around too much, but yoga does turn you upside down and you really don't want to “come undone”, which has happened.

If you could name one thing you hate about an uncomfortable sports bra, what would it be?
Just too small. Too compressed. Pushes my boobs up to my neck. It's the worst. 

The back is just as important as the front. What’s one rule you live by that you can give women about what the back of a sports bra should feel like? Any preferences? How do they stay away from the back of the bra “riding up”?
I've never had a bra ride up...that I knew of. Key here, it was probably way up and I had no idea. The biggest thing is you want to be able to move your arms freely and not feel any tugging or cutting. 

What’s the most important thing you look for in the design of the bra?
Fit and how comfortable it is.

In your opinion, what’s the most important aspect of the fit of your sports bra?
That my boobs are not smashed. No oppressive bras here.    

Do you remember your first bra fitting?
A proper fitting? I just remember having to put them in a bra all of a sudden. The rest is history.  

Do you know the difference between low medium and high support?
I'm going say that support relates to the level of intensity of the workout you're going to do. Low support means things could get wild if you go too hard. High support means you can do HIIT and not worry about losing a boob in the process. 

Share your funniest bra story?
Does it have to be workout related? I think everyone thinks a bra story will be embarrassing, but they are just boobs. We shouldn’t be ashamed of boobs. They just need the proper place to live. Take care of your boobs, and they will take of you.
