Sirona Sky Yoga.2

A big Thank You to Sirona Sky Yoga, who again will be contributing a sequence. Remember, the great thing about gust bloggers is that I begin to bore myself, and imagine you might eventually feel the same way. Guests make things more interesting, so you should think about being one yourself :)

To check out Sirona Sky Yoga, either look for her blog or her Yoga Journal Community page. 

and... of course, Happy Halloween!
