Bridgid Bibbens I discovered the transformational power of yoga in 2005, when I entered a hot power yoga studio in Boston hoping to find a form of exercise that would firm up my wobbly bits without having to go to a gym. While I certainly did lean out and tone up my frame, the true benefits of yoga went so much deeper than that. I discovered that yoga is the best doctor, therapist, and personal trainer I could possibly have.
Sean Riley I believe in the healing powers of movement. I want to share this with my students as we grow together, as they become my teachers. Yoga helps me to find my breath, and the space in between the moments. An authentic practice is central to my sanity and helps me to fully experience the people and things around me.
