I am so excited to be taking the yoga challenge for the fifth year in a row.  This challenge has become or is becoming a tradition for me.  I love all that it brings to my life.  Every year it is a different story.  Every year something new to focus on.  This year brings a theme of props.  I have recently brought more props into my practice.  I love working with props.  Taking the agonizing crush out of a pose I am trying to be in is amazing.  Feeling the freedom of an aligned spine in triangle pose is fantastic.  I understand the value of force vs ease.  This is yoga.. Ease of movement and ease of stillness.  I am excited to investigate the many ways props can be used in yoga practice.  Here’s to yoga challenge 2015!
