WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? I did my first yoga class at Yoga Tribe about 14 months ago from a trail pass from Lindsey Hill. I sat next to her at our kids baseball games, and she told me she is a yoga instructor. She invited me in to try it out, so I came in and did my first 90-minute class.
