Valentines Day Class

Valentines Day is approaching. I was thinking about this day today and I wondered to myself, why is it so that we love others so much (and so publicly) and sometimes leave so little for ourselves (Mum's especially, yes you know its true).

I think that Yoga is onto something when it puts kindness (Ahimsa) first, in its set of guideposts for life. Its such a badge of honour these days to run around after others, yes sure, yes no problem. Its nice that we all like to help each other out, but I think that some are crying out for a little kindness to be shown to them. 

So stop. Think. Ponder. What can you do today to show a little love and kindness to yourself? A nap, a long bath, a walk and coffee, just something simple. I would love to hear your thoughts.

I think that for my Monday Class I am going to consider bringing the theme of love and kindness to the practice. Hmmm, how will she do that? Come and find out. 

Monday: 9.30am to 10.30am. See you there.

  1. I'm not crazy about all the consumerism associated with Valentine's Day but I do love the idea of a special day to celebrate love. As the Beatles' song goes "Love is all there is! ".
