Our Wellbeing is Interconnected

No Comments
Hi Friends!

It’s an honor to practice ease with you daily on Strala Home, and whenever the mood strikes you. When I log on for our LIVE yoga sessions and see friends from the Midwest, all over Europe, Asia, India, South America, to up the street in Brooklyn, and beyond, I wonder, how we are all awake at the same time, and wow, this feels pretty darn close to our in person gatherings. In person is magic, but online is pretty great. We work with what we’ve got, and this time has reminded us that community is everywhere.

We drop off in the world what we practice doing to ourselves. There is freedom in acknowledging you can practice just as well from your home, at the grocery store, in line at the post office, and every masked interaction holding doors for each other with your feet. Soften. Breathe. Move from your middle. Let’s go.

Our good friend and fellow Guide, Jes Lock, created this beautiful calendar to keep us accountable and inspired to practice daily. Click on the image and it takes you to a pdf that you can save to your phone or computer, or if you’re old fashioned like me, print it out and stick it on the fridge. You have so much on your to-do list already, this is a calendar of self-care, ready to help you feel better.

Our monthly theme, (this is fun right!) is Our Wellbeing is Interconnected. When we take care of ourselves we can take good care of others. We are reminded of that more than ever. It’s beautiful to know when you’re practicing you are with friends, softening together, leaning on each other.

The calendar suggests two practices per day, suggestions of course to free your head space for deep breaths and creative thoughts. We’ll discuss the classes and anything else that comes up in our live classes a bit before and after each practice. As always feel free to let us know what is useful for you and what you would like to see more of.

If you’re not on the Strala Home bandwagon, everyone is invited. There is a 7 day trial to soak up the goodness, and for anyone who needs a little or a lot of extra help for any reason, and would love to join, please reach out. We want to help.

IG live Sundays 8am EST is still on. Join in for a Resident Yogi and the Feel Good Gang reunion. The replay usually behaves for me to post on IGTV. Enjoy a binge watch or practice if you are in the mood. Thank you for being there for me and each other. The community support is real. We’ve got you, because we lean on each other.

The mute button. 🤫An easy DIY #shiatsu to practice with yourself or with a partner. This #tsubo (entry point to a #meridian highway) has a way of calming an overactive mind. We named it the mute button in #stralayoga for a reason 😉Where

Where is your happy place? When it’s not possible to go “there” remember you can always slow down and travel within for lasting magic. 🔮 Our inner connections will make the outer ones so much more special when we all meet again. #stralayoga

A yoga practice doesn’t need to be complicated to be effective. A little throw back of little Daisy leading as the little ones do. Take this as your daily reminder to crawl down to the ground and move how it feels good for you today. Let us know how it goes. #stralayoga
