It’s not a yoga workshop.
It’s a writing (journaling) & sharing group to help you uncover your Authenticity. The goal is to connect deeper to yourself and others.
Imagine. That. ✨
We will be meeting at The Chapel at the old Norton Tree Farm in the edge of historic Dogtown. The chapel was originally added on to the house as a studio for a stained glass artist who resided there. Its vaulted ceilings and sweeping windows provide views across the fields leading out to Dogtown.
For the writing portion of this series, please bring a journal and a pen, a notebook and a pencil, or a laptop. For the sharing portion, please bring an open mind and a kind heart. This is intended to be a real experience with real people who have real emotions. Together, we will create a safe group where stories can be shared.
If you’re interested, please message me or email me at email@example.com. Once you have paid via PayPal or Venmo, you will receive a message with the exact location and address!
Français en dessous // This winter felt like folding onto and into myself on all levels. Going into my own space and facing what was there, without judgement but rather compassion. Accepting where I had arrived and in what state. And respecting that. Taking time to stop. look. understand. allow. and heal. My yoga practice has been on warming up for and doing 4 Sun salutations C for the past 4 months - and only today did I sense it was time to move into Surya Namaskar B. I added 2 rounds. Why the rush to get into all fancy poses? Ego. And that is bypassing yoga. But it is a learning road of curves and cycles so be easy on yourself - after all aren’t we all practicing yoga because we feel better when we do? Not being too serious about it has been and is one of my hidden lessons. What have you learnt from yoga? 🖤
// Durant cet hiver j’ai eu l’impression de me fondre sur moi-même. De plonger dans mon espace intérieur mais sans jugement, plutôt avec compassion. D’accepter là où j’étais et dans quel état j’y étais arrivée (limite burnout en fait). J’ai enfin oser prendre le temps de respecter mon état. J’ai pris le temps de m’arrêter, de regarder, de comprendre, de laisser les choses être et de guérir. Ma pratique de yoga est simple depuis 4 mois (mais oh doucement puissante). Échauffement doux puis 4 fois la salutation au soleil C et relaxation. Et c’était aujourd’hui que l’impulsion sous forme de pensée et de désir de faire la Salutation Soleil B s’est manifestée en moi. Car il est temps, je me sens plus forte et plus légère maintenant et donc capable d’ajouter quelque chose de bénéfique. Evoluer c’est vivre. J’ai ajouter 2 fois là B. C’est tout. Je sentais ma respiration devenir forte déjà. Pourquoi se forcer à faire des jolies super-poses difficiles rapidement? L’ego. Ainsi on passe à côté du Yoga. La pratique du Yoga est un chemin plein de surprises et de lessons subtils - il faut simplement être à l’écoute. Après tout, on pratique le yoga parce-qu’on se sens bien pendant et après non? Ne pas être trop sérieuse et lâcher un but précis pendant ma pratique est une de mes grandes leçons. Et vous qu’avez-vous appris grâce au yoga? ❤️
THE REWARDS OF ADVERSITY
I watched @yolanda.hadid on the @wendyshow today. There was such a calmness and peace about her. You could tell she was not in competition with the world. She had found her authenticity and her freedom.
Yolanda suffered for 7 years from Lymes disease. That kind of adversity can either destroy you or refine you. It refined her.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH YOUR ADVERSITY?
I thought about posting this photo and sharing how grateful I feel today (which I do!). Grateful for living so close to the beach, grateful for a job I love and one that allows me to take breaks to do this with my little. I thought I would also share how I had such a different experience staring at the same ocean yesterday.
Yesterday, I took some time to sit out here and PAUSE. It wasn't comfortable, but it was what I needed. The most important lesson I've learned in this process of finding internal happiness is that all emotions are fleeting. Facing the dark emotions head on really does help in letting them go, so the light can enter more easily. Also, getting present with the light makes life more enjoyable.
As @sherylsandberg taught us in Option B, you will not always feel this way, you will only SOMETIMES feel this way. This goes for the light and the dark. Get present with both and see the magic happen. 🖤 #findingauthenticity#imallaboutoversharing
We can all remember a time someone has said something that's marked our lives... in good ways and in bad ways. Why do words have such power over us? Find out tonight at 7:30! 💡James 3 #FindingAuthenticity
