Share your story.

Some experiences are awe-inspiring, others are difficult and painful. Some yogis experience spiritual bliss, while others enjoy it for its physical workout. For some, the yoga practice is a refuge, a safe space in an otherwise out-of-control world. For others, the yoga studio has left them struggling with their sense of belonging.
