I begin each day well before dawn. In the quiet, I explore deep questions and concepts that provide not only doorways to my liberation, but themes for our yoga classes. As a guide, I bring to you what I experience in my home – the successes and the failures – so that we can gain nobility as like-hearted mamas.
Below are just a few of the contemplations we explored this year and will expand upon in 2016:
- fortifying relationship to self as our primary parenting strategy
- self-praise as a tool for our children to model
- energy leakage and its reversal in the home
- teaching our children to feel by naming and claiming their emotions
- allowing relaxation to precede grounded and consistent interactions
- meditating as the portal to our highest selves
- healing; one apology and “I love you” at a time
- reframing transgressions to create powerful lessons
- asking what are we co-mingling with – inspiration or fear?
- cultivating our authentic voices for responsible choices
- knowing that simplicity is always best
Our yoga practice is much more than moving our bodies into shapes. It is about relating to ourselves emotionally, mentally, and spiritually in order to become kinder and more accepting. To me, that’s the highest offering we can give our families.
My endeavors for 2016 include continued studies in alignment-based yoga, trauma yoga, Reiki, and soul work. I am so excited to share my knowledge with you!
Please join me as we grow, transform, and enhance our community of love and light.
