I can’t believe it, but all of a sudden 2012 is just about over. Just to reminisce, here are some of the highlights …

It has been an amazing ride. 2012 was going to be the year of jubilee — and it really was.

Now that we’re on the other side of the shortest day of the year, the light is going to start lasting a little longer. I don’t mind the short days and the long nights, and I am sad to say goodbye to this year, but I’m looking forward to what’s to come. 2013 will, I hope, be full of more adventure, challenges, joy and growth.

In yoga, one of the most important poses is corpse pose, or savasana. Every yoga practice should end with a few minutes of relaxation to allow you to “seal in” the effects of that day’s class and prepare to take your yoga off the mat. The basic philosophy is that of balance — you’ve worked hard in your asana practice; close it out by allowing your body some rest.

Legs-up-the-wall pose the other day. Yes, I actually took a picture of my view. Am I a real blogger now?

I have worked REALLY HARD in 2012 to pursue happiness, and for the most part my search has been a fruitful one. It’s time for savasana. I am going to take the rest of this year away from the internet — I want to reset my habits and start 2013 feeling refreshed and restored, ready for another year of jubilee.

So to all of my friends, family and readers: have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year! See you in 2013!
