“Yoga is a practice of almost unlimited possibilities, benefiting our physical health, our sense of mental and emotional well-being, and feeding our soul on its search for purpose and meaning. And because of all these things, yoga can help us get healthy, be healthy, and also help us deal with sadness and suffering when they inevitably show up in our lives. It has been my invaluable companion for almost 20 years, and I am looking forward to our discoveries together in the next 20!”
