As we approach the shortest day of the year, the pace of the season may become more frenetic and yoga can bring much needed stability and balance to our body, mind and spirit.
“Do less, pay attention more” is something I recently heard in a yoga class.  If you find yourself feeling caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season, take a moment to pause. Tune in to the natural rhythms of the day which don’t change despite our “to do” list.  Notice the sunlight streaming in through the window, or the long shadows sliding over the grass in the afternoon.  
In yoga practice, pay attention to your breath and the weight of your fingers and toes pressing into your mat during Downward Facing Dog.  Find more stability and balance in your poses this week as we focus on the hips and the inner and outer spiral of the thighs.
See you on the mat!
