I am inviting you to take up a yoga challenge on Sunday, December 20th at 10 am. Are you ready to push your limits?
Getting to the 108 Sun Salutations is not necessarily the main goal. The goal I would like us to have is getting together to do something we feel proud of. To feel part of this yoga community. To create a bright memory together – on a year that has been plagued with shadows.
Click here to join the challenge. It’s free and open to everyone!
But we can also help by making a collective effort with a purpose: help the homeless. Here is the page to donate https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/geny-caloisi1
December 21st is the shortest day of the year, the Winter Solstice, and it only around the corner!
Every change of season provides us with an opportunity to set new intentions, have a little ritual and celebrate nature changes and our own.
Being the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere means that it’s also the longest night of the year! Before you think just about that long night sleep, let’s create a bit of ambience.
An old tradition for this time of the year is to light candles. The candles, which were needed in the old days to provide light, also symbolizes the return of the sun in the coming months.
I am a big fan of creating a little altar. You can have things that represent this season for you: maybe some Holly leaves or pine cones, perhaps a beautiful stone. Then take a few candles and make a pleasing pattern with them. Make room in the middle of your design to have a leading candle. If it can be golden or yellow great, as this is your own sun, in your own galaxy. As you light this centre candle put an intention, say a prayer, sing a significant song, then light the other candles.

Take time on the longest night to reflect within on what the new season and new year will bring you. Winter is a quieter time of year with colder weather and the end of the holidays, making it a great time for inner growth and peace.
