Sunrise, sunset. Days, weeks, months and years open for us to enjoy. Where I live the days are short and cold. Staying present to the moment of winter allows for moments of beauty and challenge. It is beautiful to watch your breath form a soft white cloud. It is a challenge when it is so cold your breath forms a steamy plume. Sunrise, sunset.

Ahh Winter, you give us many moments to learn and to grow. If it is too cold to play outside, then find your yoga mat. Your patient mat awaits you. We seek yoga asanas which keeps us warm, and strong yet supple. Explore with a curious heart. Have fun with your yoga. At this time of year, many of us slow down, settle inside and reflect. Release, relax, restore. You may discover the stillness inside you.

In January, many of us set personal resolutions for change. Consider Kindness as your resolution. Start with extending more Kindness toward yourself. Yogis call this Ahimsa or Lovingkindness. Let Kindness be your first response and see if more Joy and an awareness of Abundance hasn’t come along with it. It is a wonderful principle and a highly recommended resolution. Happy New Year!

Namaste.
