Winter Solstice 2019 & New Year 2020 Yoga/Qi Gong/Meditation Sadhana...All welcome!

May this Solstice and
Returning of the sun
Bring you love, magic, & starlight
~A Mid Winter Blessing

ďIn the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.Ē
~Albert Camus

A warm welcome to all who would like to participate in a Winter Solstice/New Year Sadhana. Itís a great way to finish the year and start 2020 off on a positive note!

Sadhana is a daily spiritual and/or physical practice. Itís not limited to yoga & can also include other practices such as meditation & Qi Gong. A sadhana is often 40 days, but can be any length you choose. You may also set an intention, focus, or goal if you wish. No rules and no pressure! Some of us will start on Winter Solstice, Dec 21, others on Jan 1. Please feel free to roll out your mat & share your Sadhana practices with us!

Hello & Happy Winter Solstice!

Day 1:
~restorative/yin yoga class - This was a lovely way to start my sadhana. It was listed as a restorative class, but also had a yin feel with a few longer held passive forward bends, hip openers, & twists.

I am aiming for 40 days, focusing on a more active practice with standing poses & wrist friendly flow. I’ve been doing mainly yin for quite a while so this will change things up.

Waves to all!

I have a few goals for this sadhana. First of all, I need to get back on board with healthier eating habits and "eating to live" versus the alternative. I will be exploring the use of sankalpa and meditation to support nutrition in a more mindful and yogic manner.

Second and third, my goal is to delve into different types of yoga other than restorative and yin, and get into my virgin and dust bunny DVDs.

Day 1 - Yoga Shakti Lunar Flow. in honor of the shortest day.

Jane - your adorable sloth avatar looks great for your meditation focus.

Day 2 I enjoyed Barbara Benagh's Yoga for Back Care, Rest and Restore to wrap up a gym workout and PT. After that I listened to the guided relaxation on Dr. Yoga House Calls while inverting.
