GratiTuesday – August 28th

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Another Happy GratiTuesday! Exploring multiple perspectives and experiences opens us up to expanding our understanding on a given topic. For this reason I continue to seek out fresh insight (to me anyway) on subjects long-studied. “…(G)ratitude arises from paying attention, from being awake in the presence of everything that lives within and without us,” excerpt from an online article, written by presenter David Whyte, and featured on the Kripalu website: https://kripalu.org/resources/gratitude Each Tuesday we invite one another to express one thing – in the comments field – for which you are grateful, and/or Share that sentiment as a post on your favorite social media site. It needn’t be lofty and can certainly reflect something we usually take for granted. I’ll go first… I AM so happy and grateful for early morning birdsong announcing a new day. Now your turn. I AM so happy and grateful now that/for: _____________________ #laurelblossomyoga #omofficeyoga #omintheoffice #corporateyoga #gratitude #gratituesday #mindfulness #meditation #Kripalu

GratiTuesday – August 21st

Hello Yogi-Friends ~ Happy GratiTuesday! Dancing; Celebrating life through movement. The notion of expressing gratitude through dance led me to Google (of course), “Gratitude Dance.” A particularly joyous example repeatedly popped up and I found it impossible to repress a smile, and/or remain motionless while watching this video. Let’s dance all together, all over the world: https://youtu.be/LBJi0jZR7oQ [“Where the Heck is Matt? 2016”] Each Tuesday we invite one another to express one thing – in the comments field – for which you are grateful, and/or Share that sentiment as a post on your favorite social media site. It needn’t be lofty and can certainly reflect something we usually take for granted. I’ll go first… I AM so happy and grateful for dancing – all forms of dance and expression through movement. Now your turn. I AM so happy and grateful now that/for: _____________________
