October Newsletter: Exploration, Discovery & Growth

Dearest Friends,

What comes to mind when you hear the word “challenge”? Do you think of struggle and difficulty? Do you envision the daily hectic rush required to get your kids to school on time? Or maybe that worrisome project at work that keeps you tossing and turning at night? Many of us (myself included) surround the mere idea of challenge with mental mountains of negative connotations.

A simple mind shift, though, reminds us that personal challenges can be less about difficulty and more about exploration, discovery, pushing toward greater potential and, ultimately, tremendous growth. Framed in this light, “challenge” becomes intriguing and playful – even fun!

It is this type of challenge that we’re looking forward to in October. Our 30 Day Yoga Challenge begins on Saturday, October 18th, and we’re so excited to embark on this month-long journey of discovery. We do hope you’ll be able to join us – if not in person, than certainly in spirit. We encourage you to take some time to reflect on opportunities for exploration in your own life. What can you learn? Where can you grow? How can you challenge yourself in a positive and nurturing way this month?

With warmth and support,

Your Kula

Autumn Restoration and Rejuvenation

Dearest Friends,

September has arrived, ushering us from the hot days of summer into the coziness of fall. We hope you are looking forward to viewing the season’s vibrant colors, breathing the crisp air, hearing the crunch of leaves beneath your feet – and, yes, maybe even feeling a little rain on your skin after our wonderfully sunny summer.

We invite you to find inspiration in the falling leaves. Let them lead you to a quiet moment of introspection and reflection, where you can follow their lead and gently discard those things in your life that are no longer beneficial, making way for new growth in those areas that give you support, health, and joy.

We look forward to sharing and delighting in the changing season with you this month through yoga, wellness, and community.

With love and light,
Your Kula

Embracing the Beauty of Life ~ August, 2014 Newsletter

Dearest Friends,

We hope you are feeling energized by the long sunny days and enjoying this warm summer heat before we head into the beauty that fall beholds. This time of year offers us a final hurrah before many people’s schedules become more routine and the change in the environment often sends us indoors.

As we look forward to the planning and projects, we invite you to take a step back, breathe deeply and cherish these everyday moments.

The beauty of life is not just in the big events that we plan for, but in the company you keep, the moments within nature, the feelings you receive after a yoga class or healing session, the connections in your community, and the art of nourishing in its many forms.

We hope to share with you this month as we embrace this time of year, joyfully engaging and feeding your heart.

In Loving Kindness,
Your Kula

Nicole has been sharing the gift of yoga with children and families since 2002 and is recognized as a master kid’s yoga teacher. Her work as a pediatric occupational therapist naturally led her to start teaching yoga to children in schools and then inspired her to expand her yoga offerings into studios and beyond.  Nicole continues to research, and attend various trainings on yoga and child development.
She views each class not only as a fun and educational opportunity for children, but also for herself as a teacher. Children always have been and will continue to be her greatest source of inspiration and learning. She is inspired by their insightfulness, creativity and ability to live in the moment.
