  1. Thanks for this Eve – will do. Doing yoga in tiny Los Angeles apartments is not easy and I so need to do a full practice!
    A big hug… Carol

    • Hi Carol,

      I’m sure you’re having a great time, even putting up with a tiny space.

      Hope to catch up this w/e with Martyn when we’re in Sydney.

      XO Eve
