AGY: What is your favorite asana and why?
Grace: Supta Boddha Konasana (Reclined Butterfly). This is SUCH a juicy pose and I love how open and vulnerable this shape is, especially with props to soften the posture. This is my absolute fave!
AGY: Why are you passionate about teaching yoga?
Grace: I am passionate about sharing these yogic practices because of the way it’s changed my own life and being.

Yoga is for everybody and every body!
