November 2015 Newsletter

This weekend marks the end of Daylight Saving Time as we set our clocks back an hour. We find that this time of year can be a great opportunity to press reset. As we fall back into old routines, we can choose exactly which of our previous patterns to keep and which new ones we want to sprinkle into our life and yoga practice.

The time change generously offers more morning light, which tends to invite a more easeful start to each new day. Consider making or maintaining meditation a part of your morning routine. Meditation is a practice that requires discipline, and carving out time for this subtle yet profound practice can be the hardest part. Watch the pose of the month video for tips and join us in making time for meditation as a means to reset your day.

Don't forget that time changes on Saturday night. We hope that extra hour will serve as extra incentive for you to make it to class this Sunday. And for a class that is more meditative in nature, try Yoga Nidra on Sunday and Thursday evenings at 7:15.

Namaste (the light within us honors that light within you),

Lately I've been craving pasta, like, a lot of pasta. Something that feels nourishing and filling in the belly. But obviously as a proponent of health and wellness it's important to take into consideration your craving and the best possible quality of food to nourish it. I hope this recipe will leave your tummy feeling satisfied, and body feeling healthy on these chilly, fall days.
