The weather is not getting better here in the Midwest. Apparently, we are experiencing a polar vortex.! When I was younger, we just used to call it winter.!! Now I just call it hell..!! I have cried, “uncle”, several times to Mother Nature to no avail. She is not listening to me 😦

So I’ve decided to incorporate beautiful sunrise photos from Playa del Carmen into my morning yoga routine. All photos are courtesy of my lovely friend CH btw 🙂 Similar to the rain dance, I am hoping that if enough of us do the sun salutation simultaneously, the sun will come out and make all the snow and cold go away. I mean it’s worth a try anyway. “Uncle” doesn’t seem to be working… So in the spirit of solidarity, please get your yoga mats ready and let’s begin….
