Yoga is the martial art of the soul, and the opponent is the strongest you’ve ever faced;
Seek your full potential in all you do!
“Yoga and helping others reach their potential are my passions. Yoga’s profound gifts of expansion and growth help us nurture our unique gifts and contributions. The work we have to do is sometimes tough, but always healing. Transformation on a global scale is a possibility if we each fight our own inner battles necessary for transformation. Together, there is nothing we can’t do.” – Sumya Anani
