Mindful Moments

'Tis the season to be mindful.  We are currently in the last month of the year and what better time than now to reflect, be present, and surrender to what is.  During the month of December, Yoga One embarks on Mindful Moments. On and off the mat, we encourage you to take moments each day and incorporate a dose of mindfulness. 

Now, this may seem like a daunting task.. especially if you've never explored or thought about this topic.  You're not alone.  The good thing is there are so many resources to help you in your mindfulness path. Like here and here.

Here a few prompting questions to encourage your journey:

What does mindfulness look like to you? In your personal relationships? At work? When you're by yourself?

What brings you back to the present moment?

Make a list.  How do you practice mindfulness?

The Fruitful Darkness: Winter Solstice Deep Stretch

Uncategorized Nov 29, 2018

The Fruitful Darkness: Winter Solstice Deep Stretch | Dec 21 | 7pm

The Winter Solstice marks the longest night and shortest day.  For myself, the night represents reflection, introspection, and reverence. A time to honor what has been, to let go of what doesn’t serve, and to connect to a place deep within where stillness can resound and wisdom can arise.

The solstice is considered a power gate in the wheel of the year. It is the marriage of heaven and earth - the longest night and the shortest day. The days following the solstice will progressively get longer and brighter with time.  The moon is a feminine symbol, universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies her cycles.

The phases of the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, and the dark side of Nature herself. It reflects inner knowledge and the phases of man's condition on Earth. 

It is the middle ground between the light of the sun and the darkness of night, and thus often...
