“Practicing yoga has allowed us to open our minds and emulate positivity into every facet of our lives. We want people to live the best life possible. We create a yoga experience where we sweat, smile and challenge, without taking ourselves too seriously. Each day is a new day and a new opportunity on the mat for each yogi,” said Gail Asbell co-owner Upstate Yoga.
