I’m a yoga teacher, but I’m not very crunchy-granola.  Meaning, I dye my hair, paint my nails and not everything is all-natural, all-organic, all-the-time.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just not my thing.  However, when I had my first son, suddenly I couldn’t bring myself to use some of the chemical laden […]
