My Favorite Yoga Poses

Good morning and Happy Tuesday! Last night I went to a Power Yoga¬†class at Stroga. Power Yoga classes sometimes intimidate me because often times all I want to do is stretch and lay on the floor, but I also love them because they make me feel POWERFUL. Get it? Even though there were some poses…

The Week Before
