Celebrate the Love that you Are!

Celebrate the Love that you are! 

This week of Valentines Day serves as a reminder to practice love, everyday!

How you live, how you respect and inhabit your body, what you do to take care of yourself and live compassionately are all opportunities to live in love. Love is not something that can be given or received, measured or quantified, it is a state of being that you can tap into, that you can strengthen and nourish through practices that open the heart and cultivate wholeness and healing.

At Peterborough Living Yoga, we are here for you, to hold space for the practices that can nourish and support your heart, body, mind, and soul.

Hi friends of Peterborough Living Yoga!

Tiina here, with a little personal update!

This winter I will be going away for the month of February, to one of my favourite places on the planet, Nosara Costa Rica. The need to snorkel in the tide pools and bask in the sun has gotten strong…. especially as Trent and I are in the midst of our first winter still working out the kinks of living off grid in a tiny home… I am looking forward to a break from the day to day troubleshooting of all of our off grid systems! 

In my absence, I am delighted that my classes at PLY will be running, with some amazing teachers filling in. Join Fraser for Monday 5:30 – 6:30pm Deepening Yoga, Meditation, and Breathwork, Kristyn for Monday 7 – 8:15pm Prana Vinyasa Flow, and Laura for Tuesday 5:30 – 6:45pm Flow and Restore Yoga! Thank you wonderful teachers for holding the space!

I will be away from Feb 5 – March 8. We still have room in the upcoming Chakra Bliss Aromatherapy Restorative Yoga on Friday Feb 3, 7 – 9pm!

I will be back in March to dive in to our next 200 Hr Yoga Teacher Training! We have a few spots left!

~Winter Solstice~

Honouring the darkness, hibernating within, taking care of ourselves from the inside out. We as human beings are multidimensional, holding within ourselves both the light and the dark. During the time with the shortest amount of daylight, we pay homage to the wisdom of darkness, mystery, the unknown, incubating the seeds of potential within our selves. What can you do today to honour the dark cycle? Set intention for your wintertime, creating space for rituals of self care, moving inward, connect with breath and body, quiet the mind and tend to the heart~fire. Trust the process and trust that the light returns, bit by bit as we move through the winter. Consider the importance of what the darkness, and life challenge, can teach us, and open up to your own inner light, and the light of support and community, to guide you. So, let’s celebrate the darkness and honour the mystery, the unknown, the period of incubation and hibernation that nourishes body, mind, and soul.
