"A lot of us Ashtangis, we're all or nothing people, and we got to learn to show up with gentleness and with a lot of presence and without expectation.

While filming, I started to notice that she wasn’t having the best of days (given Fiona just recovered from being slightly ill, plus the previous weekend had been hectic). It became obvious that Fiona was still going to keep on practicing and doing whatever...
