So I did it! I tried Nude Yoga

I’m a person who likes to take myself out of my comfort zone. I know that’s where the growth comes, so I will always sign up. I’ve pushed the envelope ever since I was a kid.

I knew Aura-Soma would be a part of my life forever but wasn’t sure how exactly to share it with the world. The consultations seemed too daunting and investing in the entire set of bottles was too expensive at the time. And so, I settled for the Chakra Set and my job in fashion and dreamed of creating a life I really wanted to live.
