JUNE 2014
Fill that when you need it, there is something there to keep you going.

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. It doesn't wait for you to have time or space to throw a stressful event your way.  This month, my practice was tested.  First, the flood in the studio, then, sadly, the sudden recent passing of a few friends.  All of this while managing some personal life changes, a stressful full-time job, and a few financial uncertainties.  It seemed almost too much for me to handle at once.
And then I decided to just step back, take a moment and tap into my reserves.  For the first time, I actually had reserves to tap into. I found that from my practice, I had more tools, more clarity, more energy and more love available to keep me going. I even had enough to give love and support to those around me who needed it during this time. I felt a clarity and peace through this month of chaos in a way I had never known before. So, here I am on the other end of that bumpy road looking back, and saying,  yes my practice has once again taught me something.
Simply, that the self-care and love obtained through my own yoga and meditation practice, has allowed me to be more grounded, and feel more nurtured and peaceful, through uncertain, stressful times.  
The result? I now feel more at peace with myself, and happily, I feel I have more to give.  I have realized that true giving and support can only come from fullness. Thanks to my practice, I am full, I am loved and I feel ultimately cared for, no matter what is thrown my way...and for that, I am grateful.  
I look forward to continuing my practice with you all this month.  Be sure to scroll down and take a look at our summer special!
In gratitude and peace,
