Dixie Carter's Unworkout 2, Yoga for You

This is hands down, my favorite yoga video of all time! 

It was the first one I ever had and long, long ago when my VCR broke from so much use, I still clung to the tape for years hoping that somehow I'd be able to do it again someday...


Now thanks to the miracle of YouTube, here it is!  Dixie Carter's Unworkout 2, Yoga for You

A million thanks and blessings to my dear friend Susanne for spotting it.  I love you, Susi!!!
