September is National Yoga Month.
As you crawl back from hikes and lakes and campgrounds this weekend and begrudgingly look toward tomorrow's return to reality, pencil in a few yoga classes for the week to come. It's a month of new routines, to be sure; folks with kids have been playing the back-to-school game for a few weeks already, and now as we look toward autumn and with it shorter days, cooler nights, and warmer clothes, we can already feel the energy shift.
Next week is the SF Opera's annual Opera in the Park concert. This, to me, always feels like a harbinger of fall. So as you shift into autumn mode, sharpening pencils and packing lunchboxes and coming back to the pace of school and harvest and the like, make sure to include yoga in your new sched. A regular yoga practice will lend a splash of stillness and balance to your surely already-busy routine. Those few minutes on the mat each day somehow make everything else a little easier to wrangle. And they make us all a little nicer to one another, too. And who doesn't want that?
I'll look forward to seeing you in the studio.
