I just haven't enjoyed writing them at all. In fact, I'm not sure I like writing about yoga. For me, teaching and doing yoga is not something that is easily translated into words...especially ones you have to type out and properly punctuate.

So, we've got seven left. Do I follow through? Kind of. This is my last pose post of the year, we're getting all seven done today!

Various instructors from around the area will be leading the community in 108 Sun Salutations to kick off 2015, proceeds benefiting the Africa Yoga Project. 

So, we better know our Surya Namaskara right!?
