Have you ever seen a rolling hillside from a far that looks as though it's a perfectly manicured with it's lush green coloring? This makes you want to just run up to the top barefoot, feeling the softness of each blade of grass caress your feet.

Never one to enjoy the gym or sports, too uncoordinated for aerobics, I was drawn to the physical challenge of this slowed-down, breath-centered, movement practice.

Transform Your Life… That's a pretty BOLD statement. If I were a used car salesman, that statement might send you walking of the car lot; however there is a mountain of evidence to back this up when combined with the practice of yoga.
