The Yoga Expo In LA This January!
By Nikita Mehta
Hey yogis! The end of the year is inching closer and closer, and if you are anything like us that means a few weeks of indulging in delicious food and surrounding ourselves with friends and family before ringing in the new year. But, what happens after the ball has dropped and we hop into 2018? Hopefully, your goals include more yoga and intention! And if that’s the case, we have the perfect way to ring in the new year; The Yoga Expo! On January 6th, The Yoga Expo will be headed to the Pasadena Convention center for a one day all out yoga extravaganza. We sat down with the expo’s founder, Kyle Michaud, to get the inside scoop on this amazing experience.
