Yoga mats are *everywhere* -- but yoga WHEELS?

When Dr. Travis Stork visited, he told us he loves to do yoga, specifically on his own.

"Because I’m still too intimidated at the classes,” he explains.

“If you do try yoga, start small," the doctor advises. "Know what you’re doing [and] talk to your doctor first, because these are not things that you want to do without knowing what you’re doing.”
