If we had more time, we would spend extra hours with people we care for, play outside more often, read things we enjoy and revel in all that we value in life. It seems that in this day and age, as we accept more responsibility, there is less time devoted to balancing play, love and work. We all make varying choices to juggle these needs. However if somehow, someway, we could each have more time for ourselves, wouldn’t we want to seek it and reap the rewards?
Make time for you with ‘Rituals’ in your daily life. Rituals have been shown to promote more organized and productive behaviour, and may be the only way to get important things done! It is said, that adding a conscious routine of daily exercise creates an unconscious string of events that take on a positive life of their own. If this is true, then wouldn’t it be extra special to include yoga as a ritual? Not only would we be better at managing ourselves, but by being deeply present during yoga practice, we would slow down, thus perceiving to have more time. Incorporate more yoga exercise into your schedule, and make room for all that you love in life.
Thank you to those who gave feedback in our spring survey.
btw, all Body Harmony passes can be used for Yoga by the Beach again this summer!

One of the simplest to be more “green” is to implement changes in our gardens. As we set out to get our hands dirty, instead of using expensive pest control products, opt for a more natural and plant based option. Some of the best fertilizers are in fact the by products of the garden itself! Save dead leaves, grass clippings, branches, old roots and weeds to build a hefty pile of organic goodness. To speed up the decomposition process, layer fresh plant material from the kitchen and dry organic soil on top (making sure to keep your compost moist and well aerated). Soon, you’ll have a medley of organic material to nourish this years growth. To check out a few companies who are blazing this trail, try www.gardensalive.com or www.cleanairgardening.com. You’ll find a variety of natural products to keep pests at bay and ensure your garden is green, both inside and out.
