“The real yoga we cannot see.” —David Swenson
When Chris and I met, one of the first things I told him is that I wanted to lose weight. Together we’ve tried every workout imaginable, but the one exercise that we’ve stuck with consistently has been yoga. Now, after 8 years of practice we’re beginning our training to get our first yoga certification and have been reflecting on our transformational journey.
In this episode of The Elevated Life®, we’re sharing our experience with The Transformative Power of Yoga. Whether you’re a devoted yogi or just getting started on your own yoga journey, you’ll love this episode!
