The “Stoked Yogi” mindset is about living gratefully, passionately, and with a zest for each moment.
After breaking her back in a surfing accident in 2012, Amelia realized that life is too short to do anything but what you love. She lives each day now by the Stoked Yogi mantra: Set your intention, then breathe it to life.
