Please continue to keep the North Coventry Food Pantry in mind during your shopping trips. For the October distribution they are in need of toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, baby wipes and feminine pads. They also need plastic and paper grocery bags. Please drop off any donations at the studio.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Resolve to Evolve the New Year with Intention
In Sanskrit, sankalpa means intention directed toward a specific outcome. Sankalpa praises the nobility of the effort rather than focusing on what you are doing wrong. An intention is a promise you make to yourself about what you intend to do, be, or say. An intention is a way to put positive thinking and desires into action. Intention is not oriented toward a future outcome. Instead, it is a path or practice that is focused on the present moment. You set your intentions based on understanding what matters most to you and make a commitment to align your actions with your inner values.
I begin many classes reminding students to set an intention for the practice. Sometimes we pick angle cards and often the cards align with our intentions. New Years Day is a time for starting fresh, a time for reflection and thinking about where life is calling for a change. Begin the New Year with a yogic twist. Set an intention this year praising the efforts rather then focusing on the failures. Create an intention and open yourself to the universe.
