For Kim Manfredi, 51, life is about journeys: journeys to physical places, journeys among states of mind and the journey of life itself. "When I was 18 years old, I broke my back," she says. After graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art, she moved to Arizona, where she painted the desert and took up yoga. "From my very first class, I had relief from my physical pain. And mentally, it just blew my mind. Yoga was a passion and a practice that fulfilled me personally," she says.
