Living Lighthearted and Carefree!

spencer-oct-2016Sometimes, the bumps in the road can be quite challenging and leave us feeling defeated.  It can be hard to laugh and smile when life is happening around us.  Surrounding yourself with people who love, support and encourage you is a wonderful thing to do for yourself.  Letting go helps us to enjoy life, have a little fun and be playful!  May your spirits be lifted and the light radiate within you.  You will notice it and so will those around you!

Our skeleton, Spencer, has come out and is ready for Halloween here at Sunrise Yoga and wishes you a playful and spoooooooooooooky trick or treating kind of holiday this year!


Remember to carry a little extra lightheartedness in your pocket today!

From each of us to you, Namaste.

5 Helpful Tips on the Do’s of Yoga!


5 TIPS to help you and your fellow Yogis enjoy the beauty of Yoga inside and out!

  1. DO:  Be kind and accepting of yourself and others.  BE WHERE YOU ARE!
  2. DO:  Arrive a few minutes early to begin quiet centering time for yourself, which can help you let go of your day and allow you to focus on the present moment.
  3. DO:  Avoid applying lotions, perfumes and scents prior to a Yoga class as there are many people who have extreme sensitivities to scents.
  4. DO:  Dress comfortably and wear appropriate clothing.
  5. DO:  Yoga on an empty stomach and give yourself a couple hours after eating before attending class.

Wishing you a beautiful day, Namaste.


A quote for reflection:

“It’s okay if you don’t feel grateful in this moment, even if you know you have a lot to be grateful for. Let yourself feel whatever you feel. It will be a lot easier to focus on your blessings after you let the pain run through you.”  ~Lori Deschene

Gratitude can be challenging for many people in the world today.  Life’s troubles can be overwhelming and it is easy to get lost in the thought that life is only full of difficulties.  Part of feeling gratitude may flow more easily when we give ourselves permission to acknowledge and feel our honest and real feelings with ourselves and others who are supportive and loving.  Forcing gratitude is not being truthful about where we are in the moment.  We honor ourselves by feeling our feelings and that is when gratitude becomes possible.  Living in gratitude and joy is a part of life if we allow it to be.

Where do you see gratitude in your life today?

Wishing you a moment of heartfelt gratitude today and everyday.
