The Transformative Power of Yoga: A Journey Beyond the Mat

February 19, 2020 by


Hi there!

Happy first day of Spring! Thank you for taking a few moments to enjoy our first blog post. We’ve been living in some exciting times these past few weeks. Our studio is up and running and our time spent with you has been everything we dreamed it would be! We cannot thank you enough for your love, support, and encouragement. I’m counting down the days until we are back in our happy place.

I know that the last few days have been chaotic for us all. I myself am doing my best to find peace in so many moments of uncertainty. By practicing what I preach and living my truth as a yoga teacher, I must do my best to keep calm and carry on. Not just putting on a brave face, but truly finding peace within my own being. My best suggestion is to take as many moments as you need…as many moments as you can, to calm and center yourself. Any exercise where you can ground yourself. I’d like to share a few of my favorite practices.

A yoga practice, whether you are a seasoned yogi or this is all uncharted territory. It is never too late to start. Your practice can range from a few minutes to an hour, perhaps even longer. As I always tell my students, as long as you are breathing you are doing yoga. Finding your inhales and your exhales is a really beautiful way to feel grounded. You can do this from anywhere, not just your yoga mat. Take a walk in the woods or step outside. Feel the sun on your face and breathe in that fresh air. Find thoughts of gratitude. It is NEVER a bad time to find something to be grateful for. It can be anything! And it will bring sunshine to even the darkest of days.

My hope for you is that you find calm within any chaos you find yourself in. We are in this together. You are not alone. You are NEVER alone. I’m sending you a giant virtual hug. If you need anything, I’m happy to hop on a Zoom meeting with you, correspond via email or answer a Facebook/Instagram message. I’m just one click away. Be well, my friends.
