Fall schedules can make us crazy between work, school, and everything else that comes with this cooler weather. It is important to make time for an activity that focuses on your mind, body and soul. Make time for you. Yoga is a great way to accomplish this. We have created a yoga mat strap inspired by the new season. We hope to see you in the studio!
