We are winding down on National Yoga Month, as well as our fiery, smoky, and abnormally crazy Summer season! More about that marvelous mind-body lifestyle – YOGA – and its benefits in a bit!

Always an admirer, I cited her resistance training work in KABOOMER. Dynamic strength efforts – which in my distant and layman’s opinion – helped her stave off the big “C” several times. Kudos to her Personal Trainer, Bryant Johnson, too!
