It is hard to believe that 2015 is almost over! This has been an incredible year for Sequence Wiz – huge thank you to you, our readers, for making it possible! We are incredibly grateful for your feedback on the content of our site in general and your comments on individual articles – we read and take to heart every single one of them.
2016 looks very exciting, too. In a month or two we will be introducing some major changes to the content of the site; we hope that you like them. As always, we have many interesting (and sometimes controversial) articles planned, and many more yoga practices. In 2016 we will focus on the specific application of yoga, whether it’s yoga for different populations (older students, for example) or specific body parts, conditions and/or injuries.
So today we are saying farewell to 2015 with a look back at some of the most popular articles (in case you missed some 🙂 )
Happy New Year and we will see you in 2016!
