“I always dreamed of creating a global community where I could share how yoga changed my life. Yoga taught me to trust that life is good, whether or not things are going well. It helped me enhance my patience, feel self love, stay in the moment, and truly relax. And now, I can share my practice with you all day, every day and anywhere." - Mimi
