Entering Into Another New Year

It’s that time again. We are looking back to see what the year presented and looking forward to what our hopes and goals are for the next year ahead. The emotions are all over the place at times and the work to make another holiday season bright has begun.

These are the times that our mindfulness practices are so very important. We, I’m sure, can find so many excuses to fill our time with projects, planning, shopping, and a long list of things. But, without any hesitation in me, I can easily say… get to yoga as often as you can. Our immune system, millions of cells, and vital organs need us to stay in the moment, to breathe deeply, to move blood and energy throughout every part of our body, to eat nourishing foods, and to spend time in quiet, calm spaces with other beings working in the same manner. Each year I help many get through this time of the year in many ways. I can not speak highly enough of taking restorative, therapeutic style yoga classes and maintaining your exercise schedule but with the flexibility of allowing rest time. The darker, colder days forces our bodies to work extra hard to sustain our energy levels and our adrenals need downtime to restore themselves to proper functioning. Although we may be able to “push through,” it does not mean we should. This, in no way, should be misunderstood that I am saying no exercise or do not enjoy the holidays. Rather, my hope is to help anyone wanting to stay healthy, peaceful, and present to do so as we navigate through this amazingly powerful time of the year. As we head into the new year, so many goals and resolutions come to light and, although this can be such a powerful motivator, it can also lead to feelings of being overwhelmed and failure.

This year, I encourage you to come to my Holistic Health workshop on the 29th and take note of all that makes you who you are. Maybe there are other practices and holistic health modalities that you can use to truly take your health and wellness to another level in ways you may not have been introduced to, yet. I’d love to help you take your health into your own hands and truly feel vibrant with a desire to thrive…not just survive! Wishing you and your loved ones peace, joy, love, true health, and abundance this holiday season.

From our essence family to yours...
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and peace to all.
