Meredith LeJeune is a PR powerhouseand a yoga instructor to boot. With twins and a newborn in her house, she knows the value of a minute—which is why her recommendation is to do just one asana (or pose) when you need a little yoga but don’t have time for a full flow. We talk more about which poses she especially recommends, whether her kids are into yoga, how yoga helped her transition into working for herself, and more.
