FIRST YOGA EXPERIENCE: Earliest memory is walking into a very traditional Yoga class, and the first thing the teacher asked us to do was chant OM. I wanted to crawl out of my skin, disappear, and leave. I didn’t, I sat with the discomfort. But let’s just say it took me some time to find and speak my truth.
