Creating a space for quiet and contemplation. What will encourage you to pause and just sit? Making a space could created with one cushion or several, you may want cushions to be all the same color or a variety for a work-place wellness room, studio, retreat center or a home studio. Make pausing a priority.
This year, I’ve used January to regroup, paint, de-clutter and simply take my space back! And looking forward to the Year of the Earth Pig – the pig is luck, wealth, honesty and prosperity. Have a good year and trust that you know.
It’s a new year maybe should start with – What do you want for this new year?
Many people start really strong, going to the gym, eliminating a food and within a few weeks into the new year they give up and things seem overwhelming.
Instead of resolutions, the question should be – What do I want to happen during the new year.
We are now back to the practice of pausing. Learning how to sit, breathe and figure out what you feel, think and how you want to live are all things that we can answer but the hard part is allowing ourselves the time to sit with how we feel. There are practical things we can do that will help us figure out what do I want and it may change after we are in well into the new year.
So start where you are and practice pausing. Have a great 2019! Namasté

Maybe it it will be easy to pause, because on Friday, December 21st it will be the shortest day of the year – practice pausing. It will be close to a full moon as well and in a few day it will be Christmas and in a week a new year begins. I would encourage you to practice pausing, practice quiet-time, practice being grounded.
Using yoga poses and meditation, focus on your breath to slow down. Pause…
