Feeling like your healthy goals for the New Year have slipped away? Here are some suggestions to get you back on track.
Around this time of year, people start re-evaluating their New Year’s resolutions. They either are still on track and feeling great or they’ve lost their resolve and are feeling frustrated and defeated. One of the common goals set at the beginning of the year is around weight loss. As a yoga teacher, I get questions about yoga’s effectiveness for weight loss.

Actually, I like to think of this time of year as an opportunity to get back on track with things that I set out to do throughout the year.
