Episode 50: Heather Stants

1:33 PM Edit This 0 Comments »
This episode of YIP brings you the wonderfully serene and fantastically funny (yeah, you heard me!) Heather Stants! The fab H.S. talks about her journey to dance, her movement philosophy and her love of yoga! YIP Podcast Executive Producer - Dan - steps in to help out with the interview, Mary (that's me) get's lazy (again) and indulges herself with a soooo non-traditional mix of music, Tammy keeps everything moving along, and we all live happily ever after! Yay!
