The Skeptical Yogi started messing around with yoga in the late 1990s.  She started taking it seriously in the mid-2000s.  She went to India and got certified to teach it in 2012.  She lives in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia, hates baby corn, travels obsessively, and is enchanted by anything sparkly.  She has serious doubts about chakras and anything else that smacks of New Age Wellness (magnets! crystals! NO!), but will try anything once with varying degrees of enthusiasm.
