Thank you to the stranger who reminded me of this short, but sweet lesson on judging others.
Writing about yoga isn't my usual cup of tea, but I've had such a great experience with managing my chronic pain with yin yoga that I wanted to share my insight with anyone going through chronic pain as well.
