Resources & Helpful Links
All of the following links are sites that I have found helpful that I think are important to share with all of my students, whether you're a parent, aunt, uncle, friend, or compassionate human being. I have searched for, what I think, are the best all around links/sources possible. I have no ties with any of the websites or organizations unless noted. Remember that even the best source has human error potential. So is the beauty of humanity and yoga. I use these resources myself and wanted to share with you. If you have questions, feel free to contact me directly. If there's something you'd like to share with me and the site, let me know. Namaste.
