Home - just in time for the holidays...

Dear Lovies,

The last of the U.S. troops from Iraq came home Wednesday Dec. 14th , a symbolic end to the second longest war in American history.

Lasting more than eight years, the deeply unpopular war has cost the lives of more than 4,400 U.S. soldiers and another 32,000 wounded.

Many people will be traveling home for the holidays and there's no place like home during this time.

There's yoga in that.

Home is anywhere you feel present and loved. Find home in your breath and on your mat and you'll be home.
