Receive: When we have nothing left to give 

Ever drag yourself to your yoga mat and feel depleted? You push yourself through poses and breath exercises that have become your discipline, but today you feel like you’re pushing against the grain.
Is that a bad day on the mat? What went wrong?

Updates from Just B Yoga: Going with the flow
