Do you ever get caught up in what you should be doing when you actually want to be doing something else?  Or that feeling that you are not doing enough of a certain thing or of anything?

This January marked the opening of a new O2 Yoga in Mexico City. o2yogamexico.com.  My good friend Stephany Weingerz completed  O2 Yoga Teacher Training with me back in 2008.  She then returned to her home town of Mexico City and started to dream.  Back then, we had talked about her opening an O2 but I wasn’t sure it would actually happen.  Well, after having a baby, Naomi, who is now a year old and with lots of help from family...
