Yoga Exploration Roundup

Yoga is a powerful practice.  It is rooted in mind, body and spirit, connecting the three as one.  A part of yoga is the physical practice, but there is so much more.  I started my journey with yoga years ago and earlier this year I started a Yoga Writing Exploration. It is an exploration into yoga that I had experienced and put it into several posts for you.  I have compiled all these post here.

Explore with me and walk down the path to freedom, peace, and love.  A journey only you can chose to begin and only you can chose to achieve.  Your whole life falls into your hands, explore and embrace…Join me on this Exploration!
