Yoga changed my life and has the power to change many lives. I believe that the lessons I've learned and am writing about will empower other people to transform their lives. The Yoga Blend community is coming together once again to use our yoga practice for a cause: to raise awareness for lung cancer and garner much-needed funding for vital research.
