“The best health care plan is a self-care plan” - Nina Leavins
Hey Respira Yoga Community!
I hope you're well and finding a little time to look after your body and your inner eco-system.
It is so important for us to take care of the outer body but its equally vital that we tend to our mind and soul, as IT IS ALL CONNECTED. Whether that means finding a little time each day to simply breathe deeply, to meditate, to read or to engage in another activity that we love that soothes us.. it's all good!
If setting this time aside each day feels challenging, then coming to class and developing a regular yoga practice where you are guided into a state of calm and given ideas for how to make self-care part of your everyday life, could be the answer.
