February Manduka Yogi(s) of the Month: Ravi and Shanti

ON January 27, 2016

This month we had a hard time choosing just one Manduka Yogi of the month and instead chose one of Namaste’s yoga power couples, Ravi and Shanti! Both are dedicated practitioners and are in a class almost every day of the week, and when you read their Q+A’s below you’ll see how truly amazing that is with all of the cool stuff that they do. We love having you at Namaste Ravi and Shanti, thanks for adding to our community with your focus and commitment.
