Katherine Biggs speaks to her yoga students and yoga teachers about their yoga practices. Real-life yogis talking real-life yoga. What gets us on the mat? What keeps us on the mat? And how has yoga helped us navigate the twists and turns in our lives? Every week I talk to ordinary folk who do yoga. We share our stories and our experiences both on and off the mat, in the hope we will inspire you to start or continue your yoga practice.
