Bonnie Glass loves Vermont. She has always vacationed here and though she has only lived here since July, already feels like it’s home. Like many New Yorkers, she got married here—on a mountain.

We made it. This is the yoga pose we’ve all been waiting for! And perhaps this posture is the purpose of every yoga practice? To get to a posture where we can just collapse into ourselves, simply enjoy the pulsation of the blood in the veins, enjoy the heart beating, and soak in the rejuvenating power of the yoga practice feels like a great goal (if yoga has a goal).
