Maitri Yoga: How did you start yoga?

Maitri: How long have you practiced yoga?
Meredith: 11 or so years, on and off.
Maitri: What impact has it had on your life?
Meredith: It has created a much more apparent self awareness, stress relief, community, friendships and finally, it has led me to enrolling and finishing Maitri’s 250 RYT program.
Maitri: What is your favorite yoga pose?
Maitri: What do you love about Maitri?
Meredith: The community, the teachers; the ability to walk into the studio and feel home.
