Happy Memorial Day!!

Memorial Day

I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day with family and friends! Remember the true meaning of Memorial Day, to honor those who lost their lives while serving our country. If you meditate or practice yoga perhaps dedicate your mediation or practice to those who have lost their lives defending our freedom. At least take a moment of silence this Memorial Day to show honor and respect the significance of today. Thank you to those of you who serve or have served; my thoughts are prayers are with you.
