Studio News week of April 20th

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.”
―Audre Lorde

Hello Everyone,

I love this quote. It has served to remind me again and again how important it is to slow down and actually pay attention to how I feel. As the world seems to demand my attention more and more, and information streams in at an overwhelming rate, sometimes this wisdom can get lost. And yet at the times in my life when my practice and awareness are their strongest, so is my ability to cope and my ability to contribute to my community.

So while you’re planning your summer schedule let’s remember not only how much our bodies need us to take care of them, but also what wisdom awaits us when we take time to go within.

See you on the mat!
