“In reading the library’s newsletter, I was inspired to offer Yoga to my community. In our current new way of life, I have been thinking of ways to reach out via Yoga, and have even created my own YouTube Channel called, Dear Yoga Diary.  Keeping myself sane documenting my Yoga life, has helped me through these uncertain times!”
