|My name is Mary, and I am an addict. Addiction of effectiveness ~ constantly needing to be achieving something ~ is a common ailment. Like many habits it begins as a good thing and is a problem only when it becomes compulsive, reflexive, and interferes with quality of life.|
I am only half kidding. And because you may feel me on this, I reassure you (one reason I teach restorative is because I myself so need to practice it) resting fully and deeply is a most "effective" strategy to boost immunity, enhance relationships, creativity and productivity.
Join me and my team Sat. May 12th for two luscious hours of deep and mindful rest.
Lie on bolsters and receive quieting touch. Allow the the body and mind to surrender in healing yoga postures. Pre-register to ensure a spot and so I can prep your aromatherapy gift.
Pure Yoga East, May 12, 3-5PM, Mother's Day Restorative Love
