Kristin's Yoga for Kids DVD

Hi! Can you provide the email address to contact in order to enter to win a copy of Kristin's DVD? When I click the link it takes me to iMail which I don't use (use gmail) so I can't email from there. Thank you, would love to receive a copy!

I've been a big fan of

I've been a big fan of Kristin McGee ever since she put out her yoga and Pilates videos (yes, it was before I got the DVDs) with MTV. I still enjoy doing her newer workouts (my 3-year-old daughter tries to do some of the moves, too), so I was excited to read about her Yoga for Kids DVD giveaway. Unfortunately, I don't have Outlook, so I was unable to enter via e-mail. Is there any way you could post the e-mail address? Thanks.

Love your e-newsletters, BTW :-)
