Abundance is available to everyone. It’s not something to seek, rather it’s something to soften into and allow. There is enough for everyone. Whether you tend to see things half full or half empty; we challenge you to “zoom out”, think bigger, and notice that sitting right next to your glass is a full pitcher of water. Yoga reminds us of our abundance time and time again. We forgot and then we remember and then we forget again and then remember. namaste

Kids love yoga!

by Andrea on 04/25/2014

Yoga is fun and kids love it!

It’s a time to be active without having to “win” something. The non-competitive nature of yoga is a wonderful break for our youth.

As a school teacher, when I first started teaching kids yoga classes, I was ready with all my classroom management tools, ready to pull out a the first sign of chaos.

But guess what, I have never had to use these tools!

The kids are so busy concentrating on building the yoga postures they don’t have time to act out and when it’s savasana time (deep relaxation at the end of class) they are completely still and seem very happy to have permission to rest.

Yoga kids are so lucky! I wish so much that I had started yoga much earlier in life. These kids get to learn inner awareness which leads to calming and centering and empowerment that they can use all their lives and which can help them make smarter choices in life.

Kids can reap the benefits of yoga while having fun. They might not understand how powerful the skills they are learning in yoga are right now, but they will thank you for them later.

Namaste!

We love brand new beginners!

The Word "Toula"

by ANDREA on 2/11/2014

Toula is a proper name in the Greek language. From what I understand it can also be added at the end of Greek names as a term of endearment.

The word Toula means “light” or “divine light”.

I believe we all have this internal wisdom, intuition, gut feeling or we can call it a “light” guiding us, like an arrow, pointing us in the right direction.

This light can sometimes get dimmed by circumstances of life.

We can get confused when fears, doubts, and negative thoughts start creeping into our minds.

Our light becomes harder to see.

This can lead us down the wrong path and cause us to make poor decisions.

It helps to dust off our light, re-connect with it, and then follow it again.

When we are balanced and feel connected we make better choices.

Doing yoga has helped me with this.

Doing yoga has definitely brightened my “light”and life.

That’s why the name Toula is perfect for this new studio. It is a place where you can find the balance and brightness for your life, mind, body and spirit – one yoga pose at a time.
