For our third episode in our Women’s Empowerment Series, we spoke with Larissa Schiano-Gonzalez, Founder of Be Yoga & Dance on community involvement, workplace anxiety, how she navigated COVID as a small business owner, and what lead her to take the “leap of faith” into a flourishing career in yoga practice.
