“Yoga is so much more than photographs of bendy people with spiritual quotes on fabulously landscaped backdrops. Yoga IS for EVERY mind, body and spirit. The practical applications for longevity and health as well as the daily grind are abundant. The more I learn about yoga, the more I see yoga EVERYWHERE. It’s exciting to watch yoga weave throughout my day-to-day and I love helping others notice even the small things in every moment.”
