A tip for the days when the fog will not lift; ignight your own fire:
Light non-scented candles to brighten your space.
Staring into a flame makes for great focus meditation too!

"I can honestly say that I’ve experienced several yoga instructors, but none quite as knowledgeable as Christina Robohm. Never has anyone explained breathing with such specific physical details. As someone who’s always struggled with getting my body to do what my mind is trying to tell it, Christina's explanations are very helpful. I find myself making a concerted effort to correct my posture at my desk during the day by reminding myself of Christina's words on a post-it."
