SweatNGlow Founder Petra Starke stated, "New You, New Decade and the practice of hot yoga offers military families a nexus between employment, health and wellness, and community.

I thank Petra for offering an engaging and rewarding virtual yoga practice to our families on May 18, and look forward to in-person training sessions post COVID-19."
