|Honestly what is freedom for you? Personal inner freedom I mean, besides the external strictures we all have to some degree in our lives, more so in many parts of the world.
For me, freedom is frankly something I am always working toward. Generational trauma resides in my lineage and lurks in my cells as residual fears that rise up to trip me in my journey forward on the paths of health, happiness, and creativity.
Yoga has been transformational. So too have been AcroYoga, and now Coaching. We learn by living what we learn, then sharing it. I'm so delighted to be ever reaching for more, and newer, and truer, freedom!
Here is a little tasty treat for you: if you are ever wanting a wise woman to whisper in your ears as you drift into sweet naptime or sleeptime, here is Louise Hay with some wonderful self-love meditations: 30 min Sleep Affirmations for self worth.
You are welcome! This has been my coaching corner this month! Feel free to check out my Coaching offerings ~ I only take 3 1-1 clients per season. I have an opening for one 90-Day "Love My Body, My Life" Total Transformation or one custom 3-pack Life Coaching slot on a renewable basis this season.
|Just before Labor Day Weekend is a good time to jump in to a delicious, wholesome, educational, 14-Day Fresh Foods Cleanse. With a full-color manual, Yes lists and No lists for the 7-days of cleanse foods only, self-care tools and tips for the 2-days prep, the 5-days re-entry, and for ongoing care afterward, this is a life-changer for many!
And, best of all, it is gentle on the system, and you can learn skills to manage it inside your own lifestyle, for a seasonal repeat, on your own or with me, going forward. My past participants include mother-daughter pairs, men and women of every age, and a mom-to-be in her third trimester who didn't want it to end after 14-days, it felt so good to be engaged in self-care, while nurturing a toddler, husband, AND the baby-on-board!
This is the easiest "outside to inside" approach to Coaching, changing us from the outermost shell first, polishing up the delicious body.
And we get to keep our inner changes, the results of the outer changes we make. Everything shifts, as we shift.
It's $180 ($90 for alums, or "+1" partners that join to support you), it's supported by personal teaching videos from me, a Facebook Group where you can post questions and triumphs, and group zooms for checkups. Grads of my Cleanses report happier and better partnership and understanding with their bodies, appetites, and eating regimens!

Thai Massage for AcroYogis with Sandy Ames
|It's not too early to plan treats for yourself in anticipation of the cold weather! Last winter we had such a fabulous time at YINspirations Retreat in Puerto Plata, DR that I have to share this slideshow video with you.
Donna Davidge and my hubby Raul, and I are committed to all of us having a vacation, and letting the Yoga simply augment and magnify our time there! Save the dates: February 28 to March 5, 2024
It's our escape from workaday life, stresses, deadlines. It's an opportunity to reconnect with relatives and friends that you don't have enough down-time and laugh-times with.
It's frankly, a great time to chill in beach cabanas, and let your toughest decision of the day be: which beach, and which restaurant, and what time do I desire my delicious dinner reservation to be? And, shall I check out what show or event is happening, on the resort? And, oh, yes, of course, there is morning and evening yoga, too! All of which is included and optional.
It's as good a time to reconnect with Self, on our "Love Retreat" just post-Valentine, as any reason we can think of. Make it a sacred time for yourself, with nature, with others, with yourself, with yoga
July sees three weekend dates you can come for the loving art of Thai Yoga Bodywork with me.
July 14 is "AcroThaiYoga Under the Stars" at Floating Lotus Holistic at 39 W.56th St., in the penthouse atrium, 7PM-8:30. We fly first for fun, then we Thai for healing and love.
July 28 is "AcroYoga YinYang" at Cosmic Loft in Brooklyn. 6-7PM AcroYoga, 7-8:30PM Partner Flow and Thai Bodywork.
Both are Fridays, All Levels, & No Partner Needed!
And at New York AcroFest July 21-23, I co-lead Sunday July 23 "Thai Massage for AcroYogis" with Sandy Ames 1:30-3:15.
I began Thai Bodywork as part of AcroYoga. It was found that this partner nurturance aided athletic recovery. It also builds communication skills, trust, and connection to self, partners and community!
|Thom Bond's brilliant 52-week Compassion Course online began its 2023 year June 21, and allows late registration until July 5.
Among the best communities I've belonged to is the NVC community, which is what the CCO course and its peers are.
Check it out! Could you use more understanding and clarity and empathy in your life and world?
