As 2017 is drawing to a close, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for reading my blog and contributing to the conversation. Thank you! I read every single comment and continue to be amazed at how passionate and committed you are to your teaching and your yoga practice. This keeps me inspired every day.
Here is a quick summary of the subjects that we’ve covered in 2017, just in case you missed something 🙂 And, as always, I would love to know what topics are the most relevant to you right now. Please tell me in the comments below what you would like to discuss next year. I will see you in 2018!
