Forcing yourself out of your comfort zone is a
healthy mental practice for anyone. Doing it
regularly should be a part of any healthy
lifestyle. Treating your body right through diet
and exercise opens up doors in your life that

YOGA
Nicoal ( Yoga Instructor )
Yoga has brought me patience, steadiness and ease.
Over the years, I had felt so much stress and
overwhelming anxiety as a social justice activist. I was
tired of feeling so angry and irritated about everything,
especially since these feelings had taken a toll on my
physical and emotional health after being immersed in
negativity for so long.   So, I searched far and wide for a
practice where I could release, let go, and find peace.
