Weekly YogaLetter: Embracing Change

As summer cools down and leaves ready themselves to change to autumn tones of red, yellow, oranges, we are reminded of the challenge and beauty of change. While seasons are routine, their transfer from one to the next seem to always surprise. Where did summer go? Why does time move so quickly? The same can be said for life.

As September approaches this next week, challenge yourself to be more aware of subtle changes. Notice if the air feels a bit crisper. Stop to pick up apples from the local market. Don't dwell on the summer and what you didn't accomplish, or fret for the short-days of winter ahead. Enjoy the moment. Live in autumn. Embrace change.
