"Forward bends are typically thought of as poses that direct our awareness away from the outside world and toward the inner world. While the back of the body is being stretched in forward bends, particularly the backs of the legs, our attention should continually be focused on the front torso. Always tip into a forward bend from the groins, being sure to maintain the length of the front torso, especially the lower belly between the pubic bone (the front bottom of the pelvis) and the navel. As soon as you begin to feel this area shorten, you should stop the forward movement, lift out of the pose slightly, reestablish the length of the lower belly, and then try to bend forward again." -Yoga Journal

This class has 3 components. As an Environmental Scientist/Indoor Air Quality Specialist, Lila will first talk about managing the air in your home (chemicals, cleaners, humidity, mold, etc.). Secondly, Lila will teach about how your home feels and the quality of movement through it, which is Feng Shui. We talk about some of the basic principles, why they work and how we can use them.  Lastly, Lila will teach us about Smudging, which is so much more than waving about burning sage.  We would talk about the history (we all had ancestors that smudged and the church smudges), the science, the wide variety of options for smudging, and what the real purpose (which is purifying the air, thereby raising the quality of the energy).  

December 4, 1-3PM. $20

Join us at the Yoga Melrose Studio for an afternoon conversation exploring Minimalism with Mary Hetland and Anne Welle.

Picture

Mary lives in Cold Spring with her husband and 2 daughters, having previously lived in Freeport. Mary started her journey towards Minimalism in 2017 and had since downsized over half of her household possessions.

**If there is interest we can meet again in a few months to check on progress and continue to inspire. This journey has been life changing for these ladies and their only regret is that it wasn’t started sooner!

The conversation will include an introduction to minimalism, tools, tricks and resources to jump start your journey and a round table discussion with a Q&A.

Picture

Anne started her journey inspired by Mary as they completed a minimalist challenge together which Anne continues to do each January. She farms in Freeport with her husband and 4 kids.
