Peggy came to the mat later in life and discovered a way to calm the mind, move the body and nurture the soul. She is a true proponent of honouring the unique body each yogi brings to their practice.  While stress brought her to the mat, she has discovered that practicing regularly has significantly reduced the impact of strain and tension on her life and welcomes you to join her to ease into morning.
