This week in my Yoga classes we are focusing on a bit of down time…PAUSE. We are always running in either fast forward or in rewind. Stuck somewhere between a worry or a plan… future tripping or falling backwards. This is a busy time of year for many with the various holidays. This week we will focus on pausing that and coming into the present moment. Holding onto the present moment by honoring the space between our breath, the space we can carve out in our day to decompress. Pausing now and then brings mindfulness into our activities…it lets a bit of awareness in. Then we may find more meaning in the day to day or holidays. So this season look for time to pause and notice or listen to your surroundings. Even if in the store or better yet a mall notice the kids, the people, the buzz of a million conversations and music and noises. Pause there. Listening and noticing the lives of others going on around you and your own life. Like that saying goes by that wise “Ferris Bueller” 😉
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile – you could miss it.”
Stuck somewhere between a worry or a plan…
We stumble into the present moment.
I am almost ready to celebrate one year of teaching Yoga in April which is a huge milestone for me. This site will be dedicated to teaching Yoga, stress relief, my own Yoga practice and life in general…because as they say “its all Yoga”. I have been practicing on and off for about 15 years, but it was when I faced physical, mental and emotional burnout working night shift that I deepened my Yoga practice and decided to become a Teacher. This year has been full of ups and downs and coming to find my own voice as a Teacher. I hope this blog will benefit my students and others who practice Yoga. I will be posting alot on Caregiver Yoga and burnout and information on my Yoga workshops for Caregivers…Namaste.
