That Friend Who Brought You to Your First Yoga Class


In our case, it was our college buddy Paul.  Everyone loved visiting Paul Toliuszis (rhymes with delicious) when he moved to South Beach after graduating from University of Illinois.  Yoga came into his orbit and then into ours.  He took us to our first class and became our first/now “forever” yoga teacher.  Paul’s taught classes at Om through the years (maybe you were at Transformational Breathing Class way back when or that insanely crazy, fun vinyasa flow class at the old Bucktown studio).  He came back to Om to practice today.  It meant so much to us; we are forever grateful to our dear friend and yoga buddy.
