“For fast acting relief, slow down.”
- Lily Tomlin
I played hooky on Monday... and it was great! It was my normal day off of work, but, even so, I tend to fill every minute of those off days with tasks, chores, or some sort of activity. I knew I had to give my body and mind a break. I wasn’t thinking clearly. I knew it was time to hit the pause button.

This lesson has been one of the hardest for me to learn over the years. I used to get so upset if I missed a day of my physical practice, and it took me a while to realize that even a “healthy” obsession was not healthy. Sometimes, even when you are doing something good for yourself or others, you still need a little space.
Finding the balance between effort and ease in your practice and daily life is always going to be a challenge. It’s hard to know when it's ok to push through and when to take a break. It takes going inward and being honest with yourself. In our practices, that could mean anything from resetting your footing or lengthening your leg during a long hold in warrior two or taking five in child’s pose and coming back to it with a little ease and a new perspective.
I promise it will give you the fast acting relief you are looking for!
Be kind to yourselves, my friends.

This workshop will take you on a personal, healing journey combining the Traditional Chinese Medicine practice of Acupuncture with Didgeridoo Sound Therapy. Didgeridoo Sound Therapy aides in relieving stress in your physical, emotional, and spiritual body -- by including Acupuncture, your overall experience is elevated to an even higher level. The combination of Acupuncture points and the Didgeridoos played will be selected to open specific channels (meridians) to promote relaxation and well being.
