Episode 23. Asia talks to me about yoga and about her experience hosting an international travel tv series. She also shares all about the business she built around her passions for yoga, learning and teaching other people. I learn that yoga is really a mind-body workout, with physical, mental and emotional benefits, and that it’s perfectly okay to be multi-passionate!
“It’s a living thing, you know? It is an actual relationship that you’re developing with yourself. So as long as there is something more for me to learn and to accept and to move through, then there will always be a role for yoga within my life.”
