May Strala Home Calendar: Refresh and Renew

Every Inhale Refreshes. Every Exhale Renews. It's my birthday month and a time to reflect and enjoy new beginnings. My friend Tao Porchon-Lynch used to say nature recycles itself and so can we.

April Strala Home Calendar: Just Keep Breathing

When things are easy I soften. When things are hard, I soften more. Yoga works best when practiced regularly.

It's a time of year where the panic can easily rush in, but when we practice moving with ease, we feel more energized, centered, calm and full of joy.
