Have you been getting enough rest lately? I definitely have not been. For the last few months, I have felt the cumulative affect of the stress in my body and now Im realizing I have this habit of constantly telling myself that I need to get ahead of the curve when it comes to my to-do list. I also tend to be judgmental at the end of the day if I don’t feel like I did enough. And, no matter how much I do get done, I’m never quite satisfied, and I tell myself I need to work harder tomorrow.
At some point we have to realize that we can’t just keep pedaling faster. We need to take powering down a little more seriously. It’s incredible what deep rest can do, both physically and mentally when we allow it and create the conditions to support it.
The system of yoga provides some nice tools. Nidra is a practice of deep systemic relaxation using the tool of visualization. Im teaching a workshop at Riverstone Yoga in Tarrytown on Monday May 21 at 730pm combining gentle and restorative yoga with guided nidra which is beginner friendly. Come by and experience the effects of this rejuvenating practice if you’re around!

I feel so grateful and inspired by providing expecting mamas with yoga and meditation tools that are proven to work in making pregnancy and birth more easeful.
I am especially excited to support women when they are looking to have a VBAC. Even though we can’t guarantee any outcomes it seems to me that our tools really help! So thank you to Prana Prenatal Yoga’s amazing team of yoga teachers, birth educators and doulas! I really feel we have an all-star cast and the feedback from the community is tremendous. Check out our reviews everywhere. So proud of my studio!

It was tedious to apply this decal to the wall in my studio this week. The letters are really thin and it required attention and focus to get it right. As I worked, I was thinking about this translation of Namaste.
When we busy our minds looking for differences or separateness between ourselves and others, we will find those differences pretty easily. And what that brings is negative energy, anger, feelings of isolation and frustration.
With a shift in perspective, we can change our reality. Aren’t you exhausted from the anger anyhow? Wouldn’t it be nice to live more peaceful life? Well, when it comes to how we relate to people, there’s a better way.
When we make a brave choice to look through the lens of sameness and open our hearts vulnerably toward our fellow humans in the spirit of acceptance, we change our experience.
Anger dissolves and unconditional love takes its place. And that life is really much easier than the one you were living before. Get serious about your peace and well being. It’s right there. But you gotta want it and work for it. Namaste
