"For me, the experience provided me with the tools to walk through life with an open heart, peace, and compassion. It solidified for me the importance of incorporating a yoga practice into my life, while allowing the flexibility of my yoga practice to morph and change with each life stage. It helped me breathe in difficult and situations, have perspective, and fall into a group of people who understand the importance of acceptance and openness to everyone." Leah
