TWIY: Smithsonian Does Yoga, VT Airport Yoga Room, Psychiatric Benefits, Who’s the Brit Rock Yogi?

in This Week in Yoga, YD News

Hey now, what a week! It’s taken us a little while to defrost from this freezing northeastern arctic weather, but the ice is nearly almost gone from our crystalized eyelashcicles. Brain freeze! It’s still January right? Still time to sneak in those 2013 intentions. We know, are we still talking about that? Yep, and we’ll tell you why.

Some of you may be long time readers of YD, sticking with us from the humble beginnings and some of you may be new to the yogadork crew. We are so very grateful for you all! And we’d love to give each one of you a hug. Proximity, time and broken beaming machine not permitting, we will instead send you a virtual hug by making some necessary and aesthetic improvements to yogadork.com in the coming weeks. YD is getting a makeover! Nothing too fancy, but we’re really excited and intend to share the unveiling with you very soon. See what we did there? We have some other exciting news in the oven that we can’t wait to tell you about, but it’s not ready to be birthed quite yet. Soon! Stay tuned! Love! Have some soup!
