By mid-January, plenty of people—yogis included!—have lost track of their New Year’s resolutions. (And between recovering from the holidays and freezing temperatures that only make you want to stay curled up indoors, we don’t blame you.) If one of your 2018 resolutions was to be a little more gentle with yourself, now is a great time to tap into that intention—and if it wasn’t, consider adding it now. You deserve it!
If you’ve let go of a few—or hey, even all—of your New Year’s resolutions by now, it’s easy to get frustrated with yourself. And believe me, we’ve all been there. But the key is to forget about feeling guilty or being hard on yourself for being a “quitter”, and simply un-quit! So you let go of your resolution for a week or two (or, ehem… three). There’s nothing stopping you from picking it right back up now! Whether you resolved to meet all your deadlines this year, spend more time with family, reconnect with your yoga practice (at Shockoe Slip Yoga, we’re partial to that one), or something else entirely, now is a great time to check in with yourself, celebrate what progress you’ve already made, and hit the resolution reset button. And hey, we’ve got the perfect event to help you get there.
We want to help you meet all your resolutions, and have the absolute best 2018 ever. So this month, we’re offering an intention setting workshop you’ll definitely love. Join us on Sunday, January 28 from 2:00-3:30 PM for The Power of Intention—an opportunity to reflect on the lessons you learned in 2017 and tap into the guidance of those lessons, moving forward. After two months of good food, good people and good vibes that come with the holiday season, now is a great time to reflect on the start of a new year, and to embrace a new cycle. Consider this your fresh chance to set (or reset!) goals and meet them in order to grow, evolve, and heal. This workshop will incorporate movement, meditation, and written reflections—and it’s the perfect way to cap off the first month of your new year. Learn more and sign up here!
Namaste, yogis. We can’t wait to see you on your mat soon.
