It was a very cold day, in ND

It was a very cold day, in ND, today so I chose to make it a cooking day. After literally being in the kitchen, from 8am-5pm, making soup, stew, cookies, and cakes, I am very wore out and sore. After a hot shower I did this, for the day 12 challenge, before settling in for the evening. This was perfect before finally sitting down.

So calming

Still one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES~!! If you think you are "an intermediate now" and don't want to do "beginner" practices, you are missing out on this one! You can always deepen stretches, feel better about progress, enjoy the more gentle yoga from time to time. PLEASE DON'T EVER TAKE THIS ONE OFFLINE! Thank you Melissa!!! <3
