1. Reflect: 2011 was filled with heaps of fun memories! Reflect on what made this year special for you. Join us on new years eve for our Reflect, Release, and Restore workshop with Mary Catherine or curl up at home with your journal as you reflect on this past year.
7 Tips for a Tranquil Holiday
2. Rest: Take a moment and pause from the shopping lists, the cookie baking, and the last minute holiday cards to have an “ahhhh” moment of rest. Curl up with your bolster and indulge in some restorative poses. These poses will leave you feeling rested and ready to take on whatever Santa throws your way!
3. Routine: Amongst all of the holiday hoopla, it’s easy to forget about our daily routines that help us maintain a sense of balance. Try to stick to your routine of healthy living by not over-indulging in yummy desserts (please, by all means, enjoy one piece of pecan pie), continuing your physical activities such as yoga (we are open every day but December 25 with our modified holiday schedule, come join us for class), and most importantly, maintaining a healthy amount of meditation and restful sleep.
4. Retreat: Enjoy moments of retreating from the celebration by taking some time for yourself. Sip tea. Do yoga. Watch your favorite holiday movie. Paint a picture. Cuddle with your pup. However you “escape”, allow yourself a few moments for you.
5. Receive: Give yourself the opportunity to receive the gifts that loved ones have provided just for you. You deserve it!
6. Remember: Holidays are about more than just giving and receiving. Take a few moments this season to contemplate what the holidays are really about and try to spread some real holiday cheer.
7. Repay: Take your yoga off the mat by giving back to those in need. Whatever your cause, support them during this time of giving.
We will be open every day (except December 25) with our modified holiday schedule.
Wishing you the most tranquility-filled of holidays!
