Cold showers are considered cold when the water temperature is below 70F or 21C.There are many benefits from taking cold showers.

In a perfect world, what would a perfect day look like to you? And I envisioned that day from me getting out of bed to me going to bed. I filled the day with focus, productivity, and happiness.

I began this journey because I wanted to deepen my experience of being a yogi. I want to master the practice of yoga and teach it to others as a practice of self-discovery and healing. I decided to use this gift of extra free time that quarantining has brought me, to prepare me for my future goals in life…
