Happy New Year Yogi’s and hope 2018 has been good to you so far.
January is full of hope, but also a particularly challenging time for some as there is some re-adjusting back to normality, and we become more inwardly focused after a sociable December. We tend to set our new year intentions too high – only eating “healthy” food, not drinking alcohol after an excess in December, promising ourselves we will do an hours daily yoga practice, save hard and spending less. Phew thats a lot to achieve in a month! Usually by this time of January, the intention usually goes wayward and we start to feel really negative about ourselves that we can’t stick to our resolutions (that we set too high!).
Why not try something different, love our authentic selves and celebrate our small achievements. Lets give our lovely amazing selves a break and gently ease back in to the new year, and all the wonderful opportunities for self development that it may bring. A daily yoga practice is a great idea (as we already know) as it makes us feel mentally and physically stronger, but it doesn’t have to be an hour. Just get on the mat and do some Asana’s and BREATHE. A friend sent me a really useful link from a website called www.doyouyoga.com which has really helped guide me:
2018 promises to be a great year for you and Forest Retreats with lots of exciting plans in the pipeline. We are delighted that our April Yoga and Wellness retreat is nearly full – with lots of people buying a place of the yoga retreat for a loved one for Christmas. We have lots going on this year including a Yoga festival (6-8 July 2018) and another Yoga and Wellness Retreat (12-14 October 2018). Please keep in touch and thank you for joining us on this wonderful journey.
