|Thanksgiving Restorative 11/15
|Join me and my team of loving assistants this soon upcoming Saturday November 15th from 2-4pm at Pure Yoga Eastside in New York for my two-hour "spa yoga" or "nap yoga" Thanksgiving Restorative treat.
Surrender into gentle, healing, Restorative yoga poses over bolsters and blankets, as we balance all 7 chakras with aromatherapy, mantra, yantra, soft music, and our hands-on nurturing Thai bodywork infused touch. Great for friends and family; all levels and ages, no experience needed.
10% of all my proceeds will benefit Food Bank for NYC for their Thanksgiving meals programs. Pre-register to ensure we have prepared enough space and aromatherapy Wild Orange take-away gifts for you! Register online or call Pure East: (212) 360-1888.
|How often do we equate happiness with whether life has handed us a candy apple or smashed a raw egg upon our windshield of life, so to speak?
As my husband and I move through our 6th and 5th decades of earth time, more people we know encounter family or life circumstances that strongly resemble ~ or okay, are ~ eggs on windshields.
Of course, tricks and treats can and do surprise us throughout our lives. And when we realize we are not in control, that the precious illusion we sometimes drive entire years under the influence of, is just an illusion ~ that's where we choose our response to the Boo element of life.
And when we realize that every moment is a free gift? Our response can be a psychic throwing up of our hands. And just as possibly, our response can be a joyous celebration of every single moment. Freed from the illusion of control, what if our whole mandate is to enjoy each best day? A blossom? A blue sky? Laughter among friends? Beer, fries, hugs? That cat arching up against you to be petted? What are you waiting for, my friend?
Happy Trick and Treating, happy yogis!
