EAST TO WEST

Dear Yogis, I am both happy and sad to announce September will be my last month in Vermont. I’ve been accepted to grad school in California for my Master’s in Clinical Psychology. As I begin training in psychotherapy, I’m particularly excited by a current trend in mental health care: incorporating integrative techniques such as yoga and meditation. Time Magazine has a great article here,“Psychotherapy Goes from Couch to Yoga Mat.”

I’ll be teaching in Southern Vermont until late September. Please check our online class schedule here. 

Thank you all so much for your support. It has been an honor to teach, practice and share my love of yoga with you! Stay tuned for my West Coast adventures. 

In gratitude,  xox Cara

But you don’t have the time right? You haven’t finished what you started and you need to. Consider this: you might be more productive if you allowed yourself to slow down. Instead of pushing your body to its limits and slowing down only when you get sick, give yourself time to take it easy. EVERY DAY. Whether it’s savoring your morning cup of coffee undisturbed (no email or Facebook) or practicing this yoga sequence at the office. This is a guilt free break. In France, it is now illegal to check your email after 6pm. Illegal! Imagine that. We don’t need to take it that far, but there’s something to be said for the principle. Give back to your body, go easy on it sometimes. Do you push yourself hard each day, mentally, physically or both? Show it some love, gratitude and respect. Throw a little R&R in your day with this sequence. Take a deep breath and enjoy!
