DECEMBER 2023 | Source Yoga

Hello Source friends,  

Have you picked up the newly printed Source Yoga Journal? This is a collaboration between me, Tamiko Nimura, who brought her skilled editing, Burcu Koleli, who brought her amazing design expertise, and a few other community members who generously shared their essays, art, poetry, and thoughtfulness in our first (of many – I hope!) gathering of wisdom and insight in Journal form. 

If you haven’t picked one up, they are in the studio, or stashed in our Little Free Library just outside our front door. I’m proud of what we created, and I hope reading through it brings you a felt sense of connection, community, and mindfulness. 

So here we are – December already. Here we slide headfirst into the holiday season and the wrapping up of 2023. This can be a hectic, or maybe better said full time of year. Even if you enjoy the gatherings, the travel, the shopping, and the time with family and friends, it can simply be a lot. I hope you take some time for yourself and your yoga practice, and let your time on your mat create a little space, breath, and stillness. 

I know we all want this time of year to be a little simpler, and sometimes we need to do what is convenient, fast, and easy. I know I do. I write this as a reminder to myself as well as you, but it really does make a difference in the lives of real, live people you know to spend your shopping dollars at small, local businesses, rather than the ever present company-that-shall-not-be-named (I know you know)… 

This month we will be highlighting local businesses that we love in our social media. We would love to get more ideas from you about what businesses we should support this holiday season! Email me your favorite small businesses so we can give them a shout out. 

And of course, we would be very grateful if you shared the profound gift of yoga with those you care about. Keep your eye out for the an upcoming big Source Yoga sale on passes, gift cards, and more – more info coming very soon!  

I hope to see you caring for yourself in class over the next weeks. Happy holidays, and shop small! 

With care,

PS: Join Lori for her last (of 2023) special in-studio Friday night Relax + Restore next Friday, December 15th. A perfect opportunity to take some time for rest and quiet.
