Well hello there August! Perhaps this a time when you journey outside of your daily routines for vacation, for a day out in the sun, or for completing a task you've set aside to accomplish when it's nice out. In this journey outside of routine, we can remind ourselves to stay connected to nature, both our inner nature of who we are and the natural world around us. This month on our mats we'll dig deeper into the 5 elements within us and nature, and our combined union. See you soon!
Our instructor Lori shared this beautiful photo and quote that she lives by, from Sri Pattabhi Jois, an important figure in the yoga world. Often we find inspiration on our yoga mats for change that takes place off our mats, and we do so by staying committed to a steady practice. But these changes can take time to materialize, and that’s why we refer to yoga as a practice! Join Lori for a fiery flow on Monday, July 31 to build Tapas, that energizing heat and intensity within.
