Earlier this year, I received my certification for teaching hatha yoga. It was also the same time I found out I was pregnant! I took a leave of absence from teaching, because my particular class was really rigorous on the body.

Contrary to what you might think based on what you see on À LA MODEST, I actually wear jeans and sneakers a lot. I was never really a jeans-and-sneakers kind of person in the past.
