Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. ~ Anaïs Nin

The third chakra—the solar plexus—which is our featured chakra of the month, is all about energy, willpower and tapas, also known as self-disicipline to practice fiercely and consistently.

Warm up, rock some Sun Salutations and heat your core with these high-energy tunes!
