Welcome to this episode of Inspired Me - inspiration from the heart. Today, I sit down to chat with the wonderful Amanda Ings. Oh, and Hendrix, the sweet little Buddha dog stops by for a visit or 2.
Amanda is a teacher and student of Yoga and really, of life itself. Amanda shares her love of the practices of Yoga around the world, and today she’s talking with us about what inspires her on this path.
