Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
The holidays can be a really stressful time. Consumerism abounds. There are holiday concerts, games, and lot's of investment - new skis, new boots, new snowpants. Kids grow inches in a season, let a lone the growth that occurs in a year. And that doesn't even include presents?!!!
This season, many of my friends have chatted about consuming less, shopping local, making hand made gifts and spending time with each other. Noticing the beauty of the season, the laughter, the being with each other.
And I find myself in moments of joy when it all feels so good and I feel blessed. And I want that feeling to course through my veins (and last all year long!!) - so I started asking myself how joy feels in my body? For me, joy these days is coming through crescent lunge with my arms lifted to the sky. I stretch upwards with a strong foundation rooting me to the earth. I feel grounded and limitless all at once.
How does JOY feel in your body?
Take a deep breath in. Let it go.
Let the corners of your mouth lift, ever so slightly.
Move your body to match. (or not)
Create in ways that make you feel spacious, luminous, radiant.
You gotta feel it to heal it.
