Nathan and Brett

Their shared interest in yoga has opened up new shared experiences.

Our Summer 2020 catalog cover models, Nathan and Brett, practice yoga separately and together, and find it contributes to better communication and makes them more playful and daring as a couple. Their shared interest in yoga has opened up new shared experiences, and given them tools for self-care that they use in their work at a residential community for adults recovering from mental health challenges. “I find myself practicing more physical grounding exercises and bringing my attention back to my breath and the present moment, and sharing these skills with the people I work with,” says Nathan. 

Between them, they’ve been to Kripalu half a dozen times over the last couple of years, and love the opportunity to unplug from everyday routines and cultivate their interest in yoga and mind-body practices. “I’ve developed a greater openness to new and unknown parts of myself,” says Brett. “Each time I visit Kripalu, I walk away with an excitement to continue shifting the way I see myself in the world.”
