Happy Holidays!

Wanted to send out a slightly belated holiday greetings to all our friends and family! Also happy birthday to my sister <3 !

We had a day of yoga classes, an evening of dancing, surprise presents, and a long awaited chance to talk to our folks. It was a nice day, followed by a bit of volunteer work and a hike this morning/afternoon.

Just passed the halfway point in the course, and are starting to do asana (yoga pose) lesson plans this week so we are prepared to teach our own classes to the rest of the group in our last 2 weeks. I think both of us are getting antsy to teach again. It has become part of our nature. Won't our parents be proud? ha ha

No photos to share quite yet, but I will try to upload some later this week when we have a bit more time in the afternoons. The weather here has been hovering around very cold (high 18 °C and low 5 °C) in Rishikesh. We went to a nearby town and stocked up on Christmas presents and wooly socks to sleep in on Saturday. Our hotel is located in a mountain basin, so the wind whips down the side of the mountains in the morning and freezes us while we sit in the yoga studio warming up. Brrr... I'm definitely looking forward to visiting in Florida and wearing my sandals again!

Happy New Year to everyone a bit early, and we'll see many of you in just a few weeks!
