Mantra Monday: Think

Image

With springtime comes new beginnings.  In order to change a habit we need to change our minds.  We all have patterns of thoughts and behaviors.  Meditation & yoga can help break the negative pathways we have in order to create space for new ones to form.  In yoga these patterns of experiences are known as samskaras.   Through yoga therapy we can evaluate these experiential imprints & work to create new patterns of thought & action.  

You can begin by simply becoming aware of your internal dialogue throughout the day.  Is your inner voice one of a critic or a friend?

Mantra Monday: Nature

This weekend we packed up the car full of groceries, baby gear, the baby & our dog and headed up to the mountains of the Poconos. It was absolutely quiet, peaceful & beautiful up there. We took many hikes, cooked good food & lounged around. A change of scenery & the opportunity to commune with nature was the perfect way to welcome in spring!

How can you step away from your
surroundings & set and intention for spring?

{new video} Baby Pilates Workout

Being home with Georgie has given me time to explore firsthand the fun of doing yoga & Pilates with a baby! After having a baby I felt how much weaker my core had become. Pilates is a great postpartum exercise to help re-strengthen your core.

Here’s a new quick video we shot of how to work your core while connecting with your baby.

Wellness Wednesday: Authenticity

What does it mean to live an authentic life? Being yourself, flaws and all. Allow yourself to be perfectly imperfect. It’s trough our cracks that the light shines through.

Focus Friday: The Mama Circle

I first came across The Mama Circle through Instagram.  I started following their page & loved their inspirational & educational posts on pregnancy.  Erica, the founder of the Mama Circle, is such a warm & generous person.  We have corresponded through email & I only wish she was based on the east coast!
