A Message from Kate & Cheryl – A Virtual Studio
Dear BPY Family, We are living through difficult times. It is hard to believe that we have shut down operations in Marlton to help stop the spread of a virus, COVID-19 and launching a virtual studio. I am sure that all of you are experiencing regular moments of disbelief as well. We are feeling a bit surreal, like we are playing parts in a movie.

We asked her to answer the following 5 questions about her yoga practice: What are some of the challenges you have experienced in your yoga practice and how did you work through them?
