After a delightful night of restorative yoga Monday night, I took all the gifts and nearly $150 to Four Oaks yesterday. They were thrilled to receive the generous offering of our yoga community. Restorative yoga is a place of deep relaxation where the body is supported in various poses so it can fully let go, relax, and allow the renewal process begin. I took a restorative class yesterday from my teacher/mentor/friend, Marsha at Fusion, and it was beyond incredible. She described the process like shutting down your computer, allowing it to reboot to its optimal settings. Funny, stress is like our overworked computer. Things start going haywire if we don't shut down periodically. If we aren't mindful of restoring our bodies, minds, and spirits on our own, we'll be forced to shut down through circumstances, illness, or accidents. During this precious time at Christmas, my prayer for you is that you will find the time to restore with family and friends and make room for mindful reflection and acceptance of the greatest gift of all. The ultimate healer and redeemer. Merry Christmas. Looking forward to time on our mats together in 2012.
I am a devoted yoga enthusiast and teacher.
