Mindset Matters: Interview with Deborah Ruddy

In the latest installment of Mindset Matters, Rachel is joined by Deborah Ruddy, a Registered Yoga Alliance Yoga Instructor and a qualified Anti-Gravity Aerial Yoga Instructor, to discuss the importance behind finding the balance between mind, body, and spirit.
