I took my first yoga class while studying abroad in Australia, and since then yoga has been a part of each and every day since. Surprisingly, yoga helped me navigate through and heal from an eating disorder, process past traumas, create a fit body I feel healthy in, reduced my stress, cleared up my digestive system, and so much more. Practicing yoga daily doesn’t necessarily mean I attend a structured yoga class on a daily basis. Just like you, I have a…
