Hi Kira Sloane! I'm brand new to yoga (actually just starting to flirt with it) but quite seasoned in other somatic psycho-physical practices and your explanations and general demeanor, spoke directly to my heart and mind. Thank you! I've truly been inspired to delve deeper into Yoga. Blessings from Uruguay!
So glad you are here, Victoria! Look forward to hearing about your findings. With Love, Kira
