It is the 1st official day of fall, instead of mourning the sun filled evenings & random beach days, I am respecting the change of seasons and doing my best to flow with it. Not of thinking of it as the end of things, rather I am excited for what lies ahead as the the weather will inevitably cool, leaves will fall, and we will settle in to a new routine.
Changing the Channel
The fall season brings fall shows, while I have never been a huge TV watcher, the temptation to curl up with a glass of wine and veg out has been more appealing since the evenings have become dark earlier and earlier. As a challenge to myself, I decided to plan a new activity for a few evenings this week to aid in the transition.
Sunday - attended a fellow yogis class out of the blue to surprise her =)
Monday - went flying on the trapeze at Belmont Harbor - great adrenaline boost!
Tuesday - walked for an hour with a neighbor on a new trail in our 'hood
Wednesday - took my nephew out for a spin on his tricycle
Thursday - cooked dinner for a girlfriend
Overall a pretty solid week! As someone who is very tuned into the shift of the seasons, I have to really make a conscious effort to keep myself active and engaged in new projects when fall comes around. Maybe it is 'programming' from all those years of school, but it seems I am always seeking a change as the leaves fall and the days get shorter.
Finding Your Fall Flow
Of course teaching and practicing yoga will continue to be a key element in making all the pieces of my life work as we flow into fall. I'm excited to be ramping up the types of classes I will be teaching, and my new home studio is ready for practice as well. If you are reading this and new to yoga or looking for some 1 on 1 time to get into your Fall Flow - send me a message - I'd love to hear from you!
