I hope this greeting finds you well, connecting with loved ones and creating cherished memories to savor, while treating yourself with care. In the thick of bustling holiday season it is so key to treat yourself kindly. If you are like me, finding balance during the holidays is a must, otherwise it can be short trip to exhaustion and catching the latest bug making its way around. And, sometimes the holidays can 'bring up stuff'--whether it is missing a loved one, reflecting on times past, or interacting with that extended family member who always gets under your skin. Sometimes with all the glitter there a sense that the holidays are supposed to be, should be, a 'rosy' time all around. Yet like life, this time of year is multi-layered, with both priceless joys and . . .stress.
To support you in taking good care of yourself through the remaining weeks of the season, I'm sharing some self-care tips that I hope you can use to connect back to yourself and what your body may need. You will find them below. Also, this month's new Movement and More clip focuses on the often neglected base of support--your feet. Feet can get abused during this time of year--and I hope you can nurture them with a short practice for yourself. Please reach out if you'd like receive my monthly Movement and More clips. They are a great way to start a mini-home practice for yourself.
I don't have any special workshops to announce for December. Instead, my fortunate news is that I have an opportunity to visit India this month (this is what happens when a long-time girlfriend has an extra ticket and she picks you to go with her! Yay!) I can't wait to share my experiences when I get back. We've got some great sightseeing planned and naturally visiting the birthplace of yoga will make this an exceptionally special trip for me.
I do have a HOLIDAY SPECIAL going on that right now. If you are ready to start of 2018 with self-care that makes sense of your body and your real life, let's connect. It's not about fixing you. It's about growing into the wholeness of who you can be. Amazing things can happen when you deepen your connection to your body and honor that. And it makes a great gift for a loved one too! You can find details below.
Sending you light and love,
SELF-CARE DURING THE HOLIDAYS
There's a lot out there about self-care these days, which is great, because different things connect to different people. And I love that. You might wonder though what a yoga therapist like myself really does for self-care, particularly during the holiday season when the load is a bit higher. So here are top things that help me find greater balance. Maybe some of them will work for you too.
I encourage you to explore some restorative practices of your own. Often our lives are go-go-go, particularly now. And, the body needs some kindness if it is going to keep serving us the best way it can. This is super important for wellbeing. Be good to yourself.
