I was reluctant but figured I would join her and bore myself with a bit of much needed stretching. To my surprise, I found myself enveloped by a delicious surrounding and blend of music, fragrance, comfort and performance. The 2 Master Yoga Trainers I experienced were Justin Randolph, a gentle yet confident young man with a background in voice & theatre and then to Angela Rauscher who took me to a place that brought me to tears. The combination of music, texture and personal journey of their own made my mind connect truly to my body. Mind, body & spirit is so loosely used in yoga and very few actually display it.
