The winter solstice has come and gone. When I look out the window I don’t really recognize it as winter yet, even in Minnesota. Truthfully, I’m not complaining, but I realize that it’s only a matter of time before winter is in full swing around here. Yoga is a great way to stay nice and toasty inside, especially when those temperatures go subzero. If you haven’t ever experienced that temperature, consider yourself lucky! A winter theme can easily be integrated into yoga poses making it even more fun. My winter themed yoga consists of poses for the season and poses for the holidays that occur during the winter!
