Newsletter: January 2016
Happy New Year, dear yogis. I hope this message finds you well and looking forward to a healthy, happy year ahead. 2016 will be a year of big changes for me, and change is not always easy. At the end of 2015, I delved deep inside to find the intentions of my truest heart.
Courage, and Faith, are my mantras for 2016. Courage to keep my heart open, courage to stay soft when I want to contract, resist, retaliate. Faith that the universe is on my side. These are big shifts in perspective for me, big shifts in behavior. They will be difficult to realize, and the fear and pessimism that I have lived with for so long will certainly put up a fight as I make the shift. But I know that it is what I want in my heart, and more importantly, I know that I am not lone, so hear goes!
Have you taken the time to set your own intentions for 2016? Our yoga and meditation practices give us the tools to find the stillness needed to listen to our hearts. Our practice, at its core, is there to help us find ways to bring more joy and peace in to our lives. Keep practicing, keep stepping on to that mat. Your community is there for you. I am there for you. Let's make this year transformative. Together!
If it's not too late to find some time this weekend, I'm co-hosting a fantastic workshop that will help you set those 2016 intentions in motion.
Yoga and Feng Shui coming together is something really special. Think about it: our bodies collect and hold past experience, habits, patterns, and emotions - this we know from our experience of stepping on to our mats and feeling what comes up. But our homes and work spaces can become similarly stagnant energetically, because our bodies, and the spaces we create, reflect each other.
In this workshop, you will get the opportunity to move and shift your physical energy through an all-levels Primal Yoga Flow® practice aimed at balancing the five elements within the physical and energetic bodies. You will feel great! And then you will have the chance to learn a little about Feng Shui, the art of placement, and how to shift the energy within your home or workspace.
We'll provide materials and guidance for you to create a vision board using feng shui philosophy to align your intentions with the energy of different areas of your personal environment. We're talking about your intentions for health, wealth, relationships, and so much more!
Bring a journal, pen, and any particular images (photos, original art, magazine clippings) you may want to use, and if you can, bring a friend to share the experience with. I may even bring a little wine to share after the yoga portion of the workshop... Register by phone (310-862-0444) or here.
