Seeking Simplicity and Spaciousness
I’ve been unlpugging a lot lately.
As much as our computers, internet, smart phones, iPods, iPads and other gagets are incredible tools, they can also drain our energy in a big way. I don’t mention TV in there because I unplugged from that a long time ago. It just isn’t a part of my world.
Sure, Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with people and let others know what’s happening. But too much time on email, social sites and the like can leave us feeling scattered and drained.
Yoga, on the other hand, invites us to just BE.
Yoga asks us to breathe, move, slow and still . . . to connect to that which is the essence of life and remember how simple and profound that connection feels!
I’ve noticed that, by spending less time on email and Facebook, I have more time to myself. I feel like I have more energy and focus.
But there’s always a catch, right?
For me it’s difficult because, as a self employeed person, if I don’t send out an email or post on Facebook then you might not think about coming to class as often. And as much as I sincerely love your presence and would totally teach with joy if money wasn’t a concern, the bottom line is this is also my livelihood. So I have to be online and maintain a presence as a part of my business.
Yet it can feel overwhelming, and there are other things I want to focus on in life right now, such as buying our house and creating an environment in which to raise a family.
So, I’m asking for help.
You’ll soon hear new voices in my Yoga Boot Camp emails if you subscribe to those, as friends and fellow yoga instructors start contributing. This will provide valuable new perspectives on topics that are of importance, while allowing me a break from writing the content.
If you would like to help me all you need to do is come to class, and invite friends and family to join you if you’re so inspired!
I’d like to re-extend the soaring gratitude I always feel when you bring friends to class. I pour all my skill and passion for yoga into my teaching, and your referrals are a vital part of my business.
Thank you so much for your support in whatever form it takes.
May you find more space and simplicity in your own life, and may yoga be a welcome support in creating the connection you seek with yourself and the world around you!
Quotes on Simplicity:
“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered.”
~ Nicholas Sparks
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
~ Leonardo da Vinci
“Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
