  • Wow… I grew up with a yoga-teaching mama. We come from different worlds- but I understand what ya mean! Thanks for the post!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the post. If you had said the word yoga in our house, when I was growing up, my mom probably would have thought it was a new word for yogurt. When I joined a gym my parents thought I was insane and told me I could help them garden, mow the lawn, or cut down firewood for exercise.
