A Merry and Restful Break for us all…

As things begin to wind up and other things become busier and busier I am giving myself a little break from my weekly/fortnightly blog posts over the next few weeks. That doesn’t mean you won’t hear from me at all, more that my posts will be less regular, a little surprise in your inbox when they arrive randomly!

We all need to rest and restore and with the busyness of the festive season upon us and the lull and quiet break that follows we receive a perfect opportunity to do just that. Some of my favorite holiday activities are below:

1. Just hanging out at home all day with my family – baking, playing board games, gardening, creating things. Catching up on all the stuff we like to do but find hard to fit in during school terms. My kids call these days pajama days as you don’t even have to get dressed if you don’t want to.

2. Spontaneous outings, to the zoo or a bushwalk or the city or the museum, wherever takes our fancy. The freedom to just wake up in the morning and go because there is nothing else on that day.

3. Trying something new, be it a craft project, new recipe, new activity, visiting a new place.

Maybe there is something there you enjoy, or maybe you have your own ways of chilling at holiday time. Even if you have to work all through the festive season I hope you find some time to look after yourself and do what you love the most.

I’m going to need a good rest as the New Year is looking busy at Yoga to Grow, some of what is happening below and as details are confirmed on other classes and events they will be posted on the relevant pages. Of course if you have any questions you can contact me via email belinda@yogatogrow.com.au or phone 0414 702 854.

Winding up

It is December already! I had a lovely social dinner with some of my wonderful Thursday night students last week. My beginners course at Harvest Yoga has it’s final class on Monday, the last Kids Yoga class for the year is this afternoon and there are just a couple of weeks left of my other classes.

As I teach the last classes of the year I often find myself looking back and reflecting on what has changed since the beginning. When you look back over a whole year you can really get a sense of changes taking place, much more so than when you look back over a week or a month. January seems so long ago, starting my Thursday night classes at Dance Habit, a new venue which has been fabulous for 2014 but which I am moving on from yet again for 2015.

I find myself feeling both satisfied and content with the year gone by as well as excited and motivated as I begin to plan for next year.

What will next year bring for Yoga to Grow? Here are a few things in the pipelines…

1. Thursday night yoga classes will move to a brand new venue, details confirmed as soon as they are finalised.

2. Harvest Yoga classes will continue and increase and will include beginners, prenatal, kids, toddlers, mums & bubs and open classes.

3. Celebrating Womens Wisdom retreat at Clearview on the 20th – 22nd February.

4. My own little yoga room will be completed and will be available for private lessons and meditation classes.

5. I am planning on studying Thai Yoga Massage which I am looking forward to very much.

Enjoying these last few weeks of classes, looking forward to a nice break with my family and enjoying laying the plans for a fabulous 2015 next year…

Love and light,

Belinda
