I started going to yoga classes a few years ago when I graduated and one of my classmates had went and got her yoga teacher certificate, so I decided to try it out with my good friend Nikki (Nicole Stratton). Back then I only thought of it as a bit of a work out, and […]

365 Day Yoga Challenge 2 weeks ago, I read Danielle’s blog entry, “What would happen if we actually did yoga EVERY damn day?” My first reaction was a smile for her enthusiasm, her dedication, and her youth. I thought, “I can do that!” Then, my inner dialogue started a list of all the reasons why […]
