Is Meditation the Answer for Everything? With Anusha Wijeyakumar

Welcome to Episode 24 of Let’s Talk Yoga!

Being stressed out seems to be the norm for most people these days. If you’re like me who desperately wants to relax or simply just wants to live a better life, let’s all try meditation. I invited Anusha Wijeyakumar to talk about everything we need to know about meditation. Is it really the answer to everything? I also ask her some common listener questions that I got on Instagram. I find Anusha to be really inspiring and I hope you’ll find her inspiring too. Keep calm and meditate, y’all.
