Hi Friends!

Nourishing Conversations and Practices that Connect You Back to You

Co-creating this event with our community has been on my mind for many years. I imagined we’d get together somewhere idyllic, share the mic, learn from each other, do some practice and head home nourished and inspired. In reflecting a bit on the devastating year so many folks have had, I figured it’s a good time to begin this nourishment, together project. It’s a good time to learn from each other. It’s a good time to be alive, because we are alive, together.

Guide is the word we use in our community for one who shares yoga with another. We wanted a word that described the feeling and reality of what we aim to share; connecting you back to you. We have all had some great teachers in our lives, hopefully, and maybe some not so great ones, sadly. A teacher imparts knowledge onto another. A Guide inspires. Wonderful teachers are Guides for our whole life. We salut you great Guides of all kinds. Thank you for showing us the way.

You can watch, practice and join in the conversation of all the presenters on the Strala Facebook page. Here are a few of the talks and conversations to enjoy. Huge gratitude to all the Guides for your example and sharing your stories. Special thanks to Jess Lock’s for her beautiful graphic work for all of GUIDES.

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
