Posted By on Jun 29, 2014 in Blogs, O2 Vegan Blog | 4 comments

How often do we ask ourselves this question? When I first started teaching yoga, I wasn’t “ready”.  In fact, I was kind of thrown into it because the teacher kept not showing up. When I contemplated opening my first yoga studio, I definitely wasn’t ready. I remember debating this with myself and realizing that the question wasn’t; was I ready? The question was; did I have something to share with others...
