    The Yoga Collective: A Venice Beach Online Yoga Studio.
    Loving The Yoga Collective! I know I feel amazing after a yoga practice.  Whether it?s 5 minutes, 45, or 75 minutes, it always feels incredible, and I?m left wondering, why didn?t I do this sooner? The answer is, as a Mom, teacher, coach, and podcaster there is alway something to do, and often my own practice suffers.  Recently, I have recommitted to my personal practice, and my online subscription to The Yoga Collective, adds variety and depth to my practice.  It?s super easy to do a little 10 – 20 minute session, or if I have longer, a 40-60 minute session.  It’s so nice to be gently guided in my own home, while the kids sleep, or do their homework. Convenience: Carving out the time to go to a yoga studio, is a luxury I?m not always afforded, whether for time or money.  I’m stoked I found the  The Yoga Collective! The Teachers: I love the variety of teachers, who I respect and admire.  Some of my favorites are Mary Beth LaRue, Travis Eliot, Shayna Hiller, and Rachel Tratt.   But really, I enjoy all of them.  Among them are life/health coaches, musicians, jewelry designers, artists, athletes, surfers, and yoga teacher trainers.  I ...
