Krista Shirley practicing bhujapidasana

On Sundays I like to practice at home so Kaiden can have some exposure to Yoga (since i practice at The Yoga Shala at 4:15am Monday - Friday Sundays are the only days Kaiden can see mommy do yoga). He really is wonderful while I do my asanas and sometimes he likes to get on the mat too :)
