Last Friday October 23rd we were honored to welcome psychologist, anti-racism consultant and veteran yoga teacher Dr. Nathalie Edmond.

Dr. Edmond joined us live for a fascinating conversation about anti-racism, mindfulness, embodiment, social justice, mental health, and more with studio BE founder and CEO Jennifer Ciarimboli.
