We Love Whitney Greenwaldt!

This week’s yogi highlight (our 26th) is Whitney Greenwaldt, a logal Minnesota yoga teacher from Excelsior. Whitney has been teaching and inspiring her students to find confidence, compassion and love for themselves just like what yoga has done for her.

We Love Sara Schultz!

This week’s yogi highlight (our 24th!) is Sara Schultz. Sara is sunshine — not just the brightness that comes from the sun, but its energy and brilliance too! Sara has contagious optimism and demonstrates full-bodied support for those around her. She is a serial entrepreneur and, like me, can come up with a million uses for a paperclip. Having a cup of coffee with her is magic — the ideas are like the sound of popcorn in the microwave when it really gets cooking! Sara’s disparate businesses are representative of her many talents: saraschultz.com (brand consulting), ThisFem™ (feminist apparel), and The Merry...

Brianna is simply adorable, and she has amazing energy and ambition: She’s a vegetarian dancer law student who received her yoga teacher certificate at age 15 and now teaches fellow law students out of her apartment. She’s the real-life equivalent of my childhood...
