Let’s try thinking about resolutions a little differently this year. The very essence of a yoga practice is to be in the here and now; to stay present by following the rhythm of your breath. So it’s safe to say that it goes against everything yoga teaches us is we make plans for an entire year.
We hear about slow food, slow living and slow yoga but rarely does anyone utter the words: slow Christmas. And yet it seems, more than ever, that we’re craving a slower, simpler and all-together more enjoyable approach to the festive season. We don’t want to get to January and feel exhausted and depleted.
Let’s say no to the frantic festive energy that has so many of us in a whirl. Indeed, it’s time to close the doors, settle down, and write a list of priorities for the next few weeks.
