Here we are at the start of a new year, ready to keep our resolutions: get in shape, eat better, finally finish reading War and Peace and be able to casually compare our tumultuous love lives to those of Natasha and Prince Nikolay with anyone who’s there to listen. Mostly to exercise. But then we go outside, and it’s cold, too cold to go all the way to the gym, and we’re tired, that mac n’ cheese in a box is looking like the perfect no-fuss meal, and we feel short, and that book would make a great 1,500 page booster seat while we eat our macaroni.
Luckily, there’s a someone to keep you going, no matter where you are. Yogi and “Blissologist” Eoin Finn leads an engaging and powerful Yoga, Meditation and Lifestyle Program that streams online, so you can exercise without having to leave the house.
Try four of Eoin’s vinyasa yoga classes for 30 days for only $10, and receive his Blissology Project Handbook that helps you stick to your resolutions as the months go on. Watch the classes at home, or where ever your laptop can travel, and learn about fitness, nutrition and nature without breaking your New Year budget. More

Okay, so “Downward Facing Wookie” may sound like a gross position my college boyfriend always wanted to try, but if it gets nerds off their computers and exercising, I’ll totally buy this series.
