As yogis, we aspire to work toward a deeper acceptance and understanding of ourselves, and to live healthy lifestyles. That's why starting out the New Year with yoga can be a powerful and soulful way to bring in the year. You set the intention to be a bit more loving and accepting yourself, imperfections and quirks and all, while gifting your mind and body with a practice that helps you in every way.
There are New Year's classes happening at studios across the country to help you set this powerful intention. Or maybe even gather a few yogi friends for a powerful New Year's day practice in your home. There are many ways to honor what is passing while welcoming the possibilities to come.
Here are a few happenings in some major cities:
Yoga Tree (shown above) is offering five workshops before, during, and after the New Year that include live music, kirtan, and a range of yoga classes.
At Evolution Yoga, choose from Pilates, Jivamukti or restorative yoga classes on New Year's day.
Jivamukti Yoga has its 22nd annual New Year's Eve celebration with Sharon Gannon and David Life, that includes a class, vegan dinner, kirtan dance party, and ending with silence to bring in the New Year.
Start 20111 with Siddha Yoga's audio satsang, featuring founder Gurumayi Chidvilasananda teachings.
We want to know: How can you love yourself just a little bit more this coming year?
