Simplify, Our November Theme

No Comments
Hi Friends!

It’s a good time to hang on to your center and simplify in all ways. Most of us are feeling this pull right now so we decided to lean on each other and take the month to explore the theme of simplicity. In yoga when we move efficiently, more becomes possible and we feel better in the process. We become more aware of ourselves and those around us when we simplify. We reduce the noise so we can hear more and feel more and have more space between our quick to react habits and the direction we really want to move toward.

When we simplify our movements we accomplish so much more. When we simplify our life, anything becomes possible.

Simplify is also the theme of our Strala Online 200+Hour Yoga Leadership Training beginning Nov 1. We’re so looking forward to spending this time with you. We plan to share some takeaways from the program on social also so feel free to follow along to gain the group inspiration.

Finally, and with a big exhale, Strala Apparel is here. After a decade of by default exclusive and eventually vintage (available at studios and trainings only and gifts when we see you out in the world) the comfy duds are here. Your garments arrive simple, with only a paper packing slip (no plastic!) This is another beginning for us, a continuation of giving back to organizations that do so much good in the world, and celebrating looking good, feeling good and doing good.

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.

Take good care of you and see you soon.

Lots of love,
Tara

Sometimes life is a puzzle. You have to stop and think.Fresh 💌 is there for you.I’m sitting at my parents kitchen table writing this to you. Daisy and Grandma are on the floor putting together a puzzle. Grandma pauses and says, "Sometimes life is a puzzle. You have to stop and think." And here we think we are so different from our parents. Slow down, soften, breathe, feel, and respond. Works for yoga and all of life’s puzzles.As we rush into April and all the momentum dragged along with this past year of epic emotion, ready or not we are headed toward a big release. Aligning our internal pacing with the rhythm of nature and our unhurried breath, instead of allowing our racing minds to take the lead, is necessary to find ease and balance.This Month’s Theme is Refresh & Renew YouWith each inhale I am refreshed. With each exhale I am renewed.When you are at ease, each inhale refreshes you. When you are calm, each exhale renews you. Nature shows us the signs of rebirth with each new bud and bloom. When we take good care of ourselves we are reborn too. When we take good care of ourselves in community, we co-create a vibrant ecosystem, like a magical forrest, uninterrupted to create wild, interconnected, vivid life.#stralayoga
That aprés Gentle #stralayoga glow when you feel balanced, fresh and just like yourself. Thanks radiant @paula_laney for sharing. Drop a 💫 if you practice to connect with this feeling. The real you is always ready to play.
Hang in there, that group joy is coming again. Pic from a London Strala class a while back. Whenever we gather, a great feeling is always there. Stay positive and when you feel down, reach out and lean on someone. Our wellbeing is interconnected. #stralayoga
