Creating an Outdoor Yoga Space

Spring is upon us, AMEN!  I love when the world comes alive, turning from brown to green almost overnight.  The scent of flowers in bloom wafting in the breeze and the sounds of birds chirping draw me to my outdoor space and after months of hibernating all I want to do is BE outside.
