Self-Care Series This Weekend
“When at first you don’t succeed, never try again, at least, not in the same way. Trying almost always involves extra and excessive tension.”
Many of you are probably familiar with the expression that Jon Kabat-Zinn coined for his famous book on how to cultivate mindfulness in everyday life, Wherever You Go, There You Are. It’s such a shockingly simple concept that one can very easily overlook its importance and its ramifications. We all tend to forget that when we show up for yoga practice, we are bringing with us a wide variety of habitual movement patterns that are un-examined and often times disharmonious. That is typically the root of the problem when we are frustrated by a pose: we try harder hoping that something will change, but in actuality it is the way we are trying that is keeping us locked out. So then, how can we free ourselves from old habits and compensatory patterns? Yamuna Body Rolling has been so useful to my personal practice for getting underneath these imbalances and restoring my body to a neutral, baseline state. We are so lucky to haveMeg Whitbread in town this weekend to teach us this fabulous self-care system! If you have never had the pleasure of being guided by Meg through the inner landscape of your body, then do yourself a favor and click on the big button below to read about the classes that she will be offering Friday through Sunday. Of course if you have had the pleasure of working with Meg before, then be sure to reserve your spot now because space is limited.
Hope to see you in class soon!
