So grateful for your support year after year! Can't believe it's almost 2013! Yay!
Make sure you register for yoga with me in January. I have delicious, affordable (completely non threatening/suitable for beginners) classes for everyone, from Pregnant momma's to Daytime Hatha classes to Baby and Me Yoga to evening Mixed Levels and Yin classes in Yaletown at the beautiful and historic Roundhouse AND in my own neck of the woods at Mount Pleasant CC. There also will be lot's of workshops with me in the coming year for both students and teachers alike! The biggest namaste in the world, and lots of love and peace to you over the holidays.
Also watch for a new website coming very soon at www.yogawithlorilucas.com
Looking forward to seeing you on the mat in Jan xoxoxoxoxox

In the new year I plan on adding what has somehow gotten lost from my life through much of this year to crappy stuff like family stresses and paperwork etc...
It's Nature. There will be much more nature.

While not big on New Years Resolutions I am big on changing things that aren't working for me and I currently have some of those "things" going on in my life, and I am pondering the future.
I just read this on Facebook. Here is my Facebook Page if you'd like to be on it.
Such wisdom from Pema Chodron below:
LEAVING THE NEST
All too frequently we relate like timid birds who don't dare to leave the nest. Here we sit in a nest that's getting pretty smelly and that hasn't served its function for a very long time. No one is arriving to feed us. No one is protecting us and keeping us warm. And yet we keep hoping mother bird will arrive.
We could do ourselves the ultimate favor and finally get out of that nest. That this takes courage is obvious. That we could use some helpful hints is also clear. We may doubt that we're up to being a warrior-in-training. But we can ask ourselves this question: "Do I prefer to grow up and relate to life directly, or do I choose to live and die in fear?"

Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about your day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life.
