THE STORY:

I met Natalie at a very unlikely location. At a neurologist's office? In the hospital? No, it was while we were doing acrobatics at an Acro Yoga class. As we were talking about the virtues of playing like acrobatic monkeys, the conversation turned to another reason that Acro Yoga brings us special joy: we weren't just having fun playing, we were celebrating our ability to overcome health problems.  We started talking about our medical woes and very quickly realized we had something in common: epilepsy. We formed this team not so much for us, but for the millions of others who suffer so deeply. We walk, and fly, for everyone who can't.
