What a thrill to reunite with my yoga sister Bobae Barnes in the mountains of Colorado! In this episode, we talk about Bobae’s journey to the U.S. from South Korea, healing from trauma through yoga, finding her voice as an artist and a woman, and why she thinks she might be a witch. We also discuss podcasts devoted exclusively to periods, learn about the Korean Me Too movement, and get to know a young climate change activist who’s ready for adults to get out of her way.
