Kenny Chesney Settles Yoga Classes Down

The song was a hit at radio and at retail and now, we've learned, at yoga classes. "I had a friend of mine in Vermont text me that her and her husband went to a yoga class, and at the end of the yoga class they played 'You and Tequila' every night to settle everybody down.

At first, it was difficult to answer the librarian. His shock was understandable. I was dressed in a black leotard top an...

She said she was healthy and very proud of still being able to participate in yoga. Mrs Dyett teaches her classes at St Georg...
