Take Flight: Arm Balance Workshop

Take Flight: Arm Balance Workshop

Saturday, March 3, 2018 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Have you always wanted to stand on your hands? Arm balances are so exciting yet they can feel intimidating and frightening without the proper guidance of a teacher to help you navigate the poses safely. Come to this workshop to discover the lightness of being on your hands. Students will learn several arm balances and then be able to incorporate the poses into a Surya Namaskar practice. Students must be able to do Bakasana (Crow Pose) comfortably. $25 per person, $20 for members.

Try reaching for these energy balls when you have a craving for a sugary dessert. 

Grind up 1 cup of walnuts or pecans in a food processor.
Add 1 cup of whole dried dates, about 6, to the food processor and grind. 
Put in a bowl and add 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes and 1/3 cup of coconut oil. 
Mix together and then roll into small balls. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. 

New Year Resolutions that will STICK!

Often times the New Year Resolutions that are created are completely unattainable or they are too generic. Let’s do things differently this year and set our sights on new attainable aspirations in 2018. 

Let's get crystal clear on how you will use your time, who you will share your life with and what you will do to nourish your soul and refuel your internal well. 

Here are some examples of changing the perspective on the goal, when we start slowly and move into a new way of nourishing our minds and bodies it doesn't feel like we are denying ourselves anything. We are enhancing ourselves to be the best version of ourselves on a daily basis. 

What goals are you looking to attain in 2018?

What brings you JOY?

I feel so much joy within my soul by looking down at a new nail color on my fingertips. It may seem silly or trivial to some but I take pride in them being well manicured and looking their best. I appreciate having nail polish on my nails because it's a reminder of the time that I spent devoted to myself, some may call it pampering. I call it devotion.

This time of devotion is not to be misunderstood as "me time" or time away from the family, it's not the time spent at the gym to be healthy or time spent at a yoga workshop gaining inspiration and knowledge. This time of devotion to self, stands on it's own and only benefits me. When my health coaching clients seem as though they are at the bottom of their well and grasping desperately for self care because they give of themselves in every aspect of their lives, I tell them to make a list of what I call their Personal Nourishment Menu. To list out items that are only for you and that you enjoy. After making the list, ask yourself "does anyone else benefit from this?" If the immediate answer in your mind is yes, then cross it off and start again. Go deeper. Find the thing that is for you.

If we imagine a still pond in our minds and you pick up a rock and you throw it into the pond, where the rock hits the water symbolizes you. Each ripple out symbolizes your family and friends, the ones closest to you and the ones further away emotionally and spiritually. Now of course for arguments sake someone will ultimately benefit from your Personal Nourishment Menu items, I'm not denying that. When I paint my nails the company that makes the nail polish, the nail files and the fingernail paint remover all benefit financially from me using their products. But they aren't the people who I am giving of my time and energy. I'm not painting my nails for my family or my yoga students. It doesn't make me a better mom or more capable of my job or enhance my abilities in any way. It's an activity that is only for me and one in which I get great joy from.

So what would be on your Personal Nourishment Menu? What activity brings you joy?
Try creating a list of five things that nourish your soul and fill your well, that way you can go out into the world and be of service. Allow yourself to give from a place of abundance rather than from the very bottom of your well. I'd love to hear your Personal Nourishment Menu! 

Surround Yourself with Positive People

What are the chances of everyone doing exactly what they should do or the way in which you think they should do it everyday?
How much of your day is spent worrying about your kids, your job or what your high school boyfriend posts on Facebook?

So much of our time is focused in on things that don't matter or that we don't have any control over. What we can control is our own happiness and our reaction to any given situation.
What if, this week, you chose to surround yourself with positive people? How do you think that would influence your life? And I'm not talking about fake, smiling, happy people. I'm talking about people who admit failure, who are authentic but can see that even during hard times there is something to learn. And most often that thing that we learn...is ourselves. We tune in and we learn who we are when we are tapped into our Divine Consciousness.

We need to let go of perfection and embrace one thing at a time. Multi-tasking has been proven to not actually be successful. And instead when we focus in on one thing at a time, we see results.
So today what are you going to focus on, in order to be successful in your life?

With my health coaching clients I give them a vast array of things to do and try with eating and drinking and moving. And when each thing becomes a new habit in their life and they no longer have to think much about it, it works. They lose weight and they feel better in their body. But the way it works is by focusing on themselves, to learn where the mind goes when tempted by a cupcake in the lunge at work. Is that stress? Is that unhappiness?
The same thing applies to friends or our social media newsfeed. Do those people bring out the best in us, or do they make us feel bad about ourselves and so we turn to sugar or alcohol to numb those feelings.
When we surround ourselves with people that are positive, when our social media newsfeed is about positivity and the good things happening in the world we can then see the good in ourselves. We can feel it in our body and in our soul. And our choices regarding our food and health reflect that.
