January Newsletter: New Beginnings

Dearest Friends,

Welcome to 2015! We hope that your holidays were full of warmth and joy, and that you’ve emerged from the celebratory bustle invigorated and ready for the new year stretching out before you.

This is a traditional time to grow introspective and to examine elements of our selves, our habits, and our lives. We’ll find that some feel light and buoyant, and help to propel us forward on our personal paths. Others may feel heavier, acting as counterproductive weights to bear on our journeys. Now is the perfect time to consider what is working in our lives to support us in our goals and intentions, and what may need to evolve in order to keep from weighing us down.

We hope to be a part of your journey forward this month and this year, and look forward to supporting you in community and well-being.

With gratitude,

Your Kula

Restore and Renew Yoga
Fridays, 5:45-7:15pm
with Cosetta Romani

Begins Friday, January 9th!

Restorative yoga is a powerful healing practice that deepens our relationship to stillness and silence. It addresses the issues we store in our tissues and organs, it balances the nervous system and optimizes the overall energy flow. When you are in passive postures supported by props, using no muscular effort, the focus is on relieving the grip of muscular and inner tension. From that more spacious and receptive space,  feelings and emotions are allowed to be released. When our body, mind and spirit come to balance, our life becomes balanced.
