Though this is the season that tends to have us rushing to the stores to shop for gift-giving, another way to practice the seasonal refrain of love and giving is to be kind to others.  In yoga practice we call this Ahimsa or non-harming – essentially to be kind to others.  Every day we can practice being kind in thoughts, words, and actions by being friendly and having a thoughtful, considerate attitude towards others. This may be a far greater gift than any material gift…the giving of yourself – be that a friendly thought and smile, kind words and an understanding ear, or helpful acts of kindness.

I will be holding our annual Yoga Charity Event on the last class of the fall session – December 17th.  We will have a short yoga class and then enjoy a friendly cup of tea, a few treats, and goodwill.  Donations to the charity are encouraged but optional.
