Brian Castellani. San Francisco. CA.
Jill Wheeler. Naples. Fl. Adventure is when you don’t know what’s going to happen next. As psychotherapist and adventurer, my yoga classes and retreats are always unique adventures: sometimes messy, always revealing. In Naples, you will find me kite-boarding, teaching Paddleboard Yoga and eating raw at Food & Thought. I make time for the Naples International Film Festival and the House of Gaia.
