Hello! I am a yoga teacher and yoga therapist in Austin, Texas. I help make yoga teachings relevant to your life today. What you’re about to hear is the opening of my public yoga class where I introduce an idea that I hope you can use on the mat…and OFF the mat… in your everyday life. Then we’ll set an intention, and do some guided breathing. You can listen to this while you’re driving, or doing the dishes, or maybe you can take a break…just STOP. Get CENTERED…before moving on with your day. Become a supporter of this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jessica-goulding/support
