Greek Rice Pilaf and Breaded Chicken

I helped teach a module for our Yin training this weekend and it was really inspiring. Teaching teachers put me in a new seat and opened my eyes to the vast world that is yoga. It also put my insecurities in my face and made me find courage to speak from experience and from my heart. Being humbled is my favorite.
