What do you love about Greece? I like that my older sister has lived there with her Greek husband for more than 15 years. During that time they have shown me the beautiful Greek nature, views, amazing islands, small mountain villages and of course we have been trying all kinds of local Greek food. We have celebrated Greek holidays together, and I love that I have been able to have a very authentic experience. We have created amazing memories together in Greece.

Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga? I started to follow via Lynn’s yoga classes via YouTube last summer, and I was so happy to see her “live” over Christmas and New Years Eve 2019 when I joined her yoga classes in the Salt Cave and her rooftop. Now I am following her videos. Next time I’m in Greece, I’ll be on a roof deck yoga class for sure!
First time you tried Kundalini Yoga? Summer of 2019 in my home, following Lynn’s videos on YouTube.
