winter stillness

Hi everyone,

Well i must say that it has been a long time since my last entry......i usually teach yoga on a tuesday night, however tonight everyone called in sick so that made no class which meant i had time for catch up on some things that i havent looked at for awhile.
As i sit and type this i am listening to the frogs in the back pond and am aware of the wonderful stillness that is in the air and as i walked back from the studio there was this amazing crispness in the air and a certain peacefulness that makes you stop and breathe in deeply that certain quietness.
A lot has happened over the last 6 months......have been very busy with family and not so much with work although i have run a few workshops and an Hawaiian lomilomi training which was fantastic. Have another training coming up in September, so i am in the prep stages of putting all my manuals together.

Winter has been a time of reflection on all that i do and it also is a time of gratefulness.....it shows us if we stop and take the time to be still, we are then able to acknowledge all that is in our lives and what we are grateful for.

Here at the studio a group of us gathered and celebrated winter solstice an amazing night of coming together with like minded people. A time where we are able to use the energy of the Solstice to let go and be open to the new beginnings that are coming in at the Spring equinox.
A time of meditation and contemplation on all that has gone on in our lives over the last 12 months. We all had a great time together.

Yoga has slowed a bit....however that is what the energy is in winter, time to curl up by the fire, read a book, have a cuppa and rest so that we have the energy to come back out into the busyiness of our lives in Spring and Summer.

What is happening at the Studio over the next few months is:

Sunday August 8th: Lama Tendar, a Tibetan monk is coming and doing a talk, chanting and meditation afternoon. Begins at 2pm and finishes 4pm. Cost is $20 Bookings are necessary so please phone me if you would like to join us or there is information in the store.

September: Hawaiian lomilomi training, this is a 4.5day training and you will be a certified lomilomi practitioner after this. Great to add to other healing modalities or if you are looking for a new career.

Anyway i hope i wont leave it so long next time and always drop into the store on thursdays as i am there and would love to chat or email me susie_lawrence54@hotmail.com if interested in anything that we do here at the studio.

Take it easy and will chat soon. Remember to take time each day to be in the moment and breathe!!

love and light
