Manic Monday Morning Yoga & Smoothie

Mondays generally suck, but they suck a little less if you get your body right to start the day.  This is one of my favorite yoga practices from Sadie Nardini.  She’s pretty awesome, and this 30 minute morning routine really helps me wake up and stretch all those places that need it most before I start the weekly grind again.  Enjoy.
