How Often Should You Do Yoga?
Certified Yoga Teacher and Fitness Instuctor
I’ve been a fitness instructor for 18 years, a yoga teacher for 13 years, and a runner and athletic enthusiast for most of my life. I believe we’re all capable of so much more than we realize, and it’s so much fun to watch that emerge as we work toward our goals. I love to travel, and I recently relocated to Las Vegas after six years in South America.
