Summer is here. This is my favorite time of the year. Time to let loose from our yearly schedule and spend more time with family and friends. I love being outside gardening, riding bikes and taking long walks.
Did you know you can practice yoga and enjoy the beautiful weather too? The Sanskrit word yoga means “union, connection, relationship, or skill in action.” Any activity you do with full awareness can become part of your yoga practice. Take a walk and feel the contact of the earth along the sole of your foot. Notice the sensations that arise with each step. Listen attentively to the sounds that surround you. Feel the heat of the sun on your skin. By being mindful and fully present in whatever you do, you are practicing yoga.
The studio has been lively this month. We have some new classes this summer: Yoga Basics 101 on Thursday evenings and Vinyasa 1-2 on Thursday mornings. Speaking of summer heat, Motomi is teaching Tuesday evenings with the studio heated to about 85 degrees. Stop by and try out our new classes!
