We learn, move, and have fun together. It’s awesome. We are on this yoga-inspired journey together, and I’m learning from her every day.

As you will see, yoga is so much more than the physical postures. This ancient wisdom also teaches us about breathing, mindfulness, relaxation, mantras, and the guiding principles to becoming a happy, responsible, and compassionate human being.

Sharing the gift of yoga with our daughter brings me so much joy.
