Hey Wildling, I hope that the first few days into August are treating you well! That been said following the full super moon it may have felt like a turbulent time with lots of things going wrong, or overwhelm has made you feel a little clouded. Don't worry! Im here to offer a gentle reminder that life is full of ups and downs, that there are always going to be moments of turbulence, but just like todays weather (rain!) it too shall pass. Classes over the next month are connecting us to the Muladhara Chakra, where we can just take time to pause, stop, rest and be still for a while. The last few weeks have been gorgeous sharing more Yin practices and your feedback and love for them makes me smile so much! If you're coming to classes over the next few months, bring your blankets & cushions, lets make the most of calm & cloudy days. Ever felt like life was going so fast that its getting a little to busy to handle? Here's this months newsletter, sharing you dates for my upcoming workshops, my final outdoor classes and little snippets to keep you inspired.
