Happy Happy New Year!
Here we are, experiencing the delight of longer days, more sun, warmth and an abundance of light pouring in our lives! A new year is upon us, filled with opportunity, beginnings, freshness, and renewal.
During the end of a cycle, a year, or event, we have a tendency to reflect upon our past. We allow ourselves to release old habits, old thought patterns, stuck energy within our bodies and minds. Upon a new year, we may set goals, resolutions, and shine our light toward a bright future. We see this as an opportunity to start our lives anew.
Please keep in mind; how we choose to live in this current moment is how we are living our lives. So honor your resolutions, open to new opportunity, invite a sense of renewal right now, in this moment. You can best take care of the future, by taking care of the now.
Greet the sun with a smile each morning upon awakening. Feel the knowledge that you are blessed with another day. Set a daily intention. Remind yourself of this intention throughout the day, no matter where you may be. Honor your current physical, mental, and emotional state by checking in with all of them. Ask yourself how you would like to feel today, and commit practices that help guide you there a part of your daily life. Today is now. Live fully today. Truly, this very moment is all we really know for sure. How do you want to feel? How will you cultivate this feeling?
January is a big month, with lots of opportunity for Yoga, study, practice and insight. Check the website for offerings, and I look forward to seeing you all in class very soon! The monthly Vinyasa Chill/Yoga Nidra practice at Gotta Yoga is tomorrow, New Years Day 6:30-8:00pm. Happy New Year!
Breathing in light, breathing out radiance.
