Change is upon us: in March we change the time, change the season, and celebrate change at 4yoga as we welcome new students and teachers! To learn more about Brandy Foulkrod, Carmen Herrera, Heather Kessler, and Deb Logan, the four teachers joining us, check out this post.
How do you deal with change? Are you a pessimist who complains, an optimist who expects the situation to improve, or a realist who adapts to what is happening in the present moment? We would probably all agree that the realist has the healthiest response. Fear of the unknown and lack of trust in something greater than ourselves are usually what keep most of us from adapting to changing circumstances and yielding to the changes we must make in our lives.
Your yoga practice can be a very positive grounding resource to keep you stable in times of change by making your body your friend and using your breath to still the mind. This is a great month to add a class or two to your yoga practice for the grounding benefits as well as having the opportunity to meet the new teachers.
