Hey, I really liked this class a lot. I think I might do it again tomorrow. i think it’s so wonderful to concentrate on coming back to center and finding balance. It’s so important and wonderful to take the time to do that.
I like your legwarmers, do you make them yourself? I should knit you a pair to thank you for putting out such a great podcast. I really appreciate it.

Jessi! are you serious, hand knitted legwarmers? that’s even too much to even dream about 😀 I LOVE LEGWARMERS!!!! The ones that I have on are from Lululemon Athletica, they are totally cool, I have them in 3 colors, the blue ones in the pics, purple and black. They are totally cool. If you happened to live ’round where I teach you would know that I’m the legwarmer queen! I’ve worn legwarmers to practice yoga ever since I began practicing, they just work for me! YEAY FOR LEGWARMERS!!!!
