  • With all the winter holiday festivities, don't forget to move your body or booty! It's too easy to get caught up with all the dinners and parties that sometimes you just need some space and time for yourself.

  • "You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside"- Wayne Dyer

Take a moment to breath and check in with yourself. How are you feeling? How is your body doing? Without changing anything notice your breath and your body. How do you feel?

  • Beautifully said! We are connected to the environment around us and sometimes it's hard for us emotionally and physically to stay motivated. 
@Regranned from @theartofjoy_ -  Its that time of year when, if you're living in Vancouver it can be hard to keep spirits high. Seasonal affective disorder is a real and serious struggle for many of us who live on the Coast during winter. I and many friends I've talked to often feel the pull of comfort to stay inside and often start being less social, hermiting away. On one hand I believe its important to flow with the shifts in season and personal rhythms. At the same time, if you're feeling the blues as winter nears sometimes staying can make things worse. Sometimes we need to force ourselves to get out into the rain and go see friends or try new things, like coming to classes! 
Message me if you would like to come and try any of my classes this week for free as my guest! Or if you're feeling the pull of winter gloominess lets talk! I'd love to listen, talk or share my suggestions for keeping spirits lifted

  • Mondays aren't always easy, so come destress with us every Monday at 8:15pm for some Candlelight Yin with @agni.postawska 
@Regranned from @agni.postawska -  Join me tonight at 8:15pm for Yin at @dharmamovementcompany 
Surrender to stillness. Be at peace with silence. Calm your mind for inner reflection.

Let the distractions of the world fade away until you can hear the whispers of your heart.

  • Well said! It's not hard to find a community at DMC when everyone is so welcoming. We  want to learn and share what we know about movement with each other.

@Regranned from @acroyogasurfgirl -  In general people are not drawn to perfection in others. People are drawn to shared interests, shared problems and an individual's life energy. Humans Connect with humans. Hiding ones Humanity and trying to project an image of perfection makes it difficult to truly connect. ( Somewhat taken from @createthelove )

  • Beautifully said!

@Regranned from @carew_movement -  Move freely, move with intent. Move because your body can. •⠀
⠀
Move because some bodies can't. Move with the intent to grow, yet with acceptance of your possibilities and limitations right now. Move without ego. ⠀
⠀
Move with love. Move with hate. Move through every aspect and emotion of your life: physically, mentally, emotionally. Move with truth; your truth. ⠀
⠀
Movement is growth, movement is understanding, movement is patience, movement is both the student and the teacher. ⠀
⠀
We are constantly flowing, dynamic, and ever-evolving. Stasis is an illusion. ⠀
