"I noticed changes as the weeks went by, reminiscent of those I often saw in new students of yoga. My lifelong slumpy posture corrected, as I felt the crown of my head rise as if a string were exerting a gentle tug. My shoulders unlocked. My feet stabilized my whole body, each toe engaged. Pounds dropped off, and my entire body snapped back into place after the various sags wrought by two pregnancies and years of sitting at a desk."

New Mexico is well known for outdoor sports like skiing and hiking, but its indoor activities are also abundant, endorphin-rich, and spiked with local flavor.
