Thank you: 21 Days of Gratitude

Posted by on Nov 20, 2015 in Evolution Blog | 0 comments

Some shared little things like gratitude for coffee or a full night’s sleep, others shared really big things such as gratitude for learning how to endure terrible loss.

Imagine the feeling of gravity releasing your spine while you quietly breathe, reversing the effects of sitting and standing all day long. Wouldn’t it be great to do a Warrior II pose with support from a strap, opening the hips while you just relax? Would you…
