" Each day, it is a joy to come into the studio at Yoga Om, to feel the warmth created in the room and the pulse of the collective breath. Watching students finish their practice and leave the studio with a smile on their face and a skip in their step reminds me what a gift it is to be teaching yoga. I feel blessed to be part of the ever growing community at Yoga Om."
