Meet our Green Yogi of the Month (and manduka sponsored) for September, Margot Farris! Margot is an inspiration to us because in addition to all the classes she’s racked up since first practicing with us in August 2010 she is also a co-founder of the independent bookshop in Manhattan Beach {pages} a bookstore. She and her partners have created such an inviting space to peruse books I could spend all afternoon cozying up to my newest find on one of their comfy leather chairs. Oh and my son LOVES the bean bags in the kids section!  Margot is a pillar in our community inspiring yogis and readers alike to engage with their community and live their passion. Congratulations Margot you Inspire Us! ~ Kelly
