March 2015: Simplicity


Our theme for the month of March is “Simplicity”. As I was sitting here contemplating on the meaning of simplicity and how simplicity applies to our yoga practice and our life, the gift of the present moment came to me. Ahh yes! How often are we caught up in our thoughts, our to do lists and perpetual habits of going, doing, BEing elsewhere? How many of us suffer from feelings of inadequacy due to thinking we don’t have enough time? Not enough time to do yoga, to meditate, to eat well,  to work, to spend time with loved ones, to live? Let us us debunk those myths this month, with the simple, yet profound power of being here now.  In fact, I’d like to invite you to embrace this very moment, with a deep inhale and as equally full exhale. Doesn’t that feel good?

How can we be more present in our lives?  What are other ways that we can simplify?  How can we make our practices easier and more accessible? We will be exploring these concepts and more in future blog posts as well as on Twitter with our bi-weekly yoga chats:

“How to Simplify Your Yoga Practice” – March 13  10am-11am PST #yogachat

 “Tools to Simplify Your Meditation Practice” –  March 27th 10am-11am PST #yogachat
