JULY 2014
Seeking spiritual and emotional independence.

Freedom. Independence. Liberation. These ideas will be celebrated with parades, festivals and BBQs over the next week.  But here's something else to consider:
  Free Happy Woman Enjoying Nature. Beauty Girl Outdoor. Freedom concept. Beauty Girl over Sky and Sun. Sunbeams. Enjoyment.

What if we were to explore the idea of freedom from within?  


What if we could liberate ourselves through yoga and meditation practice on and off the mat?


What if the independence we were seeking from others, was available to us, by us, all along?


These notions certainly aren't new, but pondering them during this time of year can bring new meaning to your own practice and this festive holiday filled with fireworks, family and friends.  Through yoga we find flexibility, not only in the body, but in the mind. And that flexibility brings new perspectives.  For July, I invite you to think about the idea of freedom from a new perspective - share your ideas, and then explore them on and off your mat.
Releasing the the metaphorical chains that hold you back in life can be the greatest gift your practice ever grants you.  It could be just learning to release unnecessary stress, anxiety and tension - or maybe something deeper - like relinquishing old behavioral patterns that no longer serve you.  
For me, the practice of yoga and meditation shines new light on the possibilities for emotional and spiritual freedom.  Knowing that we have the ability to change and grow is powerfully liberating.  I am grateful for the chance to explore these perspectives with you all on the mat! Those glimpses of freedom, in those quiet moments of practice, are more than sweet.  I have only had a taste so far, but it is enough to keep me seeking and practicing with a new perspective.

Thank you for being a part of this journey with me.
In gratitude,
