Keep Calm and Carry On
Keep Calm and Carry On

How is your reaction time these days? Life is moving at a breakneck pace and doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. If you find yourself reacting immediately and allowing yourself to be buffeted about by external events, we want to remind you to slow down and build serene strength from the inside out. By choosing to slow down and taking time to rest and recharge, you can create a wellspring of stillness within and react to anything or anyone coming your way with more equanimity.

We’ve got four excellent new classes this week designed to help you lower your blood pressure, quiet your mind, and feel good, regardless of what else is happening in your life.

We are thrilled to introduce our very own Keith Allen with the launch of two new classes: Deep, Slow, Mindful, Flow and Meditate & Cultivate Calm. We know you’ll love his clear, soothing guidance. Before you practice with him, we’ll give you some background and why we know he’ll soon become one of your go-to teachers.

Every teacher is unique and Keith taps into his wanderlust, his broad exposure to various yoga lineages, and his passion for meditation in his classes. More than a decade ago, Keith traveled to Africa to teach English. He practiced yoga for the first time in Moshi, Tanzania with Mt. Kilimanjaro in the background. Not your average yogi, right? Yoga moved Keith so deeply during his first class, he knew instantly it was to become a positive part of his life for a long time. He continues to study with different teachers, lineages, and yoga styles and incorporates his learning into his own practice and teaching.

Keith’s classes balance a meditative focus with safe alignment principles. Meditation is the key focus for Keith and he believes learning to create more calm within is the key to leading a more peaceful life. He uses these principles to lead workshops and yoga teacher trainings. He is launching his first book, www.theyogafixbook.com as a resource of healthy movement patterns. Check it out.

In addition to introducing you to Keith, we’ve got the always amazing Jackie Casal Mahrou’s: Gentle Hatha 7: Free Yourself for a well-rounded practice. Finally, make sure you sleep like a baby with Denelle Numis’ Nighttime Nidra.

Remember, taking time for yourself and maintaining your calm within the storm helps not just you, but those around you. We can make the world a more beautiful place through our individual dedicated practices.
