6:35 AM I can't believe how fast December is going by. Also I feel like the days are passing me right now since, I didn't really sleep much because of this stupid moon phase. Somehow my body is full of energy at the weirdest times and then again I am beyond exhausted. 
How are you feeling?

People in NYC. How jealous I am about your snow...I wish I was back home, too! Will we celebrate a white Christmas this year? What do you think? 

Today we get to know CHATURANGA

It is also known as Chaturanga Dandasana and it good for toning the wrists, arms, abdominal muscles, and lower back. 

1. Begin in Plank Pose. Keeping your elbows directly over your wrists, slowly lower your body to hover a few inches above the floor. Keep your back flat.
2. Lift through your chest, keeping your shoulders in line with your elbows. Do not let your chest drop or sag toward the floor.
3. Fully engage your abdominal and leg muscles. Do not let your elbows splay to the sides. Keep them hugged along your ribcage, pointed toward your heels.
4. Press the base of your knuckles into the floor. Your upper and lower arms should be perpendicular, bent 90 degrees at the elbows. Do not let your shoulders drop lower than the height of your elbows.
5. Hold for 10-30 seconds, and then lower your body all the way to the mat and rest. 

Let's do this. 
Take your time and enjoy it!
