Hilary Bryant is the Holistic Health Coordinator and Yoga Instructor for Toivo by Advocacy Unlimited, a mind-body center in Hartford, CT that believes that no one should be denied the benefits of yoga, meditation or any other holistic offerings based on socioeconomic standing, psychiatric history and/or experiences with addiction. After experiencing years of extreme emotional distress that led to diagnoses, countless medications and electroshock, she has transformed her life through the power of yoga, meditation and intentional living.
