Joy in the Time of the Virus

Live: Sunday, July 11th, from 10a to 12p Pacific time

In difficult times it is easy to forget to cherish the simple moments in our daily life which have the potential to stimulate  joy, the joy which yoga teaches us always lives at our core.

Even though it may seem counterintuitive, it is important that we consciously choose to remember our hidden joy, and to take measures to allow it to blossom.

Among other things, joy gives us hope, and hope gives us the ability to adapt to the moment, regardless of its difficulty. Being present for even a few moments is a profound gift that we can give ourselves every day.

Join Lizzie and Judith for a live Restorative yoga class where we can let go; let go of our fatigue, let go of our anxiety, let go of our need to constantly be “doing”, and finally, to let go of our reluctance to let ourselves feel some contented joy in the midst of life’s challenges.

Remember, when we do allow joy to be revealed, we not only help heal ourselves, we also begin to help heal the world.
