Barbara Cornell – Barbara came to her yoga practice by chance over fifteen years ago. She bought a yoga tape out of curiosity and tried it at home. After the first 20 minute beginner session, she was winded and dizzy. After a week, she was more relaxed. After a month, she was hooked. Certified in Transformational Yoga, Thai Massage, and Level II Reiki, Barbara’s focus is human anatomy and finding ways for everyone to practice yoga safely.
