A Yogi's 12 Days of Christmas

Just for fun during the Holiday Season of Christmas at the Jones Center in Springdale, AR, we will be doing yoga poses set to the tune of "The 12 Days of Christmas". There is an adorable video on YouTube showing a children's yoga class doing a cute version of this: 12 Days of Christmas Yoga. For our classes at the Jones Center, I changed some of the poses to flow a little better for an adult class. Join me on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30pm to learn this flow. During our December 15th and 17th classes we will flow through the entire vinyasa as a fun way to conclude our classes for 2015.

2nd Day - Two Turtle Doves (Pigeon Squat)
