In light of over exposure, the lulus scrambled over the weekend [...]

Savasana Thoughts

Ahh...sacred savasana, the final relaxation pose where you can finally let go. UNLESS.

Season's greenings yogi brethren and sisters! We hope you enjoyed a bit o' luck this weekend whether you're Irish or just leprechaun-friendly. Good for you if you celebrated.
