“Through my life I have practiced yoga off and on. It was first after a course in mindfulness that I got a greater perspective of what yoga really is. I was surprised to learn that the individual asana are designed not only to keep the body flexible, but to affect the mind in various ways.” – Lise Aagaard
Yoga can every day be a support and Lise Aagaard turns to the yoga practice as a break in life from busy workdays and long agendas:
