Happy New Year dear friends and yogis❣️
For the month of January, I will continue to teach on the same days and times … AND I am adding a fresh approach to Wednesday and Friday classes! Please also mark your calendars for a two hour retreat on Saturday January 29th from 10.00am – 12.00noon
As we begin to look towards the lighter days ahead, let’s not forget that Winter is a time for introspection and reflection. In Chinese medicine the season of Winter is associated with the Water element. In nature, everything appears still, cold, quiet and lifeless, but appearances are deceptive. Life is hidden underground and is being deeply nourished by water. The snows and rains represent a great cleansing process, allowing everything to be washed clean and bare. I am happy to announce a theme for the month of January, as well as a change to the schedule for this month. The theme is:
💦 CULTIVATING THE SPIRIT OF WATER 💦
When we cultivate the spirit of Water we learn to let go of the struggle and resistance, so we can flow around obstacles in our path. We need to take time to allow the tension to melt from ice to water. Water releases and water yields. In the spirit of Water we can begin to understand who we are in a deeper sense, and begin to flow more easily through life.
Come practice with me as we explore moving between centering and movement; stillness and flow; inward and outward; Yin and Yang.
BRING a FRIEND for FREE will continue. Do you know of someone who would like to try yoga , or return to it after time away? January is a great time to recommit to our practice.
