Two Fit Moms is a joint collaboration between Laura and Masumi, two 38-year old mothers with the common goal of staying healthy and fit. With yoga and nutrition, Laura and Masumi have discovered that they CAN turn back the hands of time and be strong, fit and healthy at any age. As long-time friends, it has always been their dream to start a business together. Through yoga, Laura and Masumi have found the common thread to make this dream a reality. Together, they attended yoga teacher training to become certified instructors, and they now teach special events and conferences as a team. Their commitment to wellness and yoga has been featured in various media outlets, including a regular monthly feature with Yoga Journal, and they continue to produce frequent content for their own award-winning blog, www.twofitmoms.com. In addition to representing their own wellness brand, Laura and Masumi are spokespeople for Gaiam and represent their yoga apparel line in Kohl’s department stores. Look out for their new yoga DVD in Kohl’s stores this month. In the meantime, practice with Two Fit Moms in their series of downloadable yoga classes.

Masumi Goldman (@masumi_g) is a former Wall Street analyst and MIT graduate who discovered a love for yoga while dealing with a painful condition that affected her joints and tendons. By embracing yoga, meditation and a macrobiotic diet, she was able to rehabilitate parts of her body that lost flexibility after months of inflammation and immobility. Through this roller coaster experience of battling a chronic illness, Masumi learned that yoga is multi-faceted in its benefits. Not only can it strengthen muscles when the body feels good, but it can heal the spirit and nourish the mind when an asana practice is not physically possible. This journey prompted her to follow her passion to inspire people of all ages and abilities to live healthy, happy lives through a regular yoga practice, whether that practice is physical, spiritual or a bit of both. In addition to connecting with her here on the Two Fit Moms website, you can find her on Instagram (@masumi_g and @twofitmoms) or take classes with her in Englewood, NJ at Real Hot Yoga.
