The Travel Bog Diaries. Thrown Out Of A Yoga Class In India

The Travel Bog Diaries. Thrown Out Of A Yoga Class In India

My desire to indulge in some yoga came out after I witnessed the perfect family in India. Perfect kids, perfect Mother. I concluded that this must surely be a result of partaking in either a) dancing around the full moon naked, b) drinking lots of wine, or else 3) taking regular yoga classes.

On a Budget in Fort Lauderdale? Don’t Miss This Millionaire Experience!
