“I use yoga as a tool to help reduce the stress of our daily lives, to heal and nurture the body, mind and soul. Yoga is a very personal journey and every yogi has different strengths and abilities. Yoga is accessible to everyone and with modifications, most yoga asanas (postures) can be practiced safely by all. In yoga, we listen to our bodies and aim to do no harm.”
