Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis.

Waylon talks with Alex Hayden Hernandez about diversity in the yoga community, losing weight out of self-love, keeping it off, bullying in schools, food justice and getting Sasy.

Elephant is psyched to be working in partnership with Google+ on our new live video series, which features three live videos a week (that can be watched later, too).
