Getting RAW with Micaela Malmi

Understanding the ebb and flow, the highs and lows of your physical and emotional body is quite profound. What soothes you, what shakes you? Have you noticed you are more in tune with yourself the more you do yoga? That is the magical part of the yogi’s journey. The more you turn to the practice, the more you find – perhaps because there is more you are seeking.   What are you seeking?   What comes [...]
