Interestingly, Angelica Olstad is what I would describe as a yoga enthusiast. Unlike myself, who claimed to looove yoga for all of two seconds, this practice has directly influenced and impacted the way in which Olstad goes through life. As she explains, "Yoga enriched my life through the way I interact with the people around... Continue Reading →
