Happy Summer Solstice

Welcome Summer!

Read below for some fun ways to welcome Summer with me today, tomorrow and Saturday.

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac Summer Solstice happens today, Thursday, June 21, 2018 specifically at 6:07 a.m. EDT (3:07 a.m. EDT).

In the Northern Hemisphere, the June solstice occurs when the Sun reaches both its highest and northernmost points in the sky. (In contrast, the June solstice in the Southern Hemisphere is when the Sun is at its lowest point in the sky.)

The word “solstice” comes from Latin solstitium—from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), reflecting the fact that on the solstice, the sun appears to stop moving in the sky as it reaches its northern- or southernmost point. After the solstice, the sun appears to reverse course and head back in the opposite direction.

The timing of the June solstice is not based on a specific calendar date or time; it all depends on when the sun reaches its northernmost point from the equator. Therefore, the June solstice won’t always occur on the same day.

Taking care of No. 1

I recently made the decision to drastically reduce my teaching schedule.

Many of you know that and some of you don’t know.

This was a difficult decision to make and I didn’t take it lightly or make this decision without a lot of thought and love put into it.

As a yoga teacher I teach and preach self-love, self-care, self-discipline. I remind my students that they need to take care of No. 1 before they take care of anyone else.

I have not been taking care of No. 1, which means I can’t be the best yoga teacher (and cycling instructor) I can possibly be. I can’t be the best wife or daughter or friend or sister or cousin … either.

I feel tired, exhausted, overwhelmed, burned out …

I am opening myself up for some healing and new opportunities to arise. And some have already come to me. Some of the opportunities I am working on, some are set and some are what the future holds.

It’s amazing when you let go something else, another opportunity (or … Continue reading
