A few reminders from Peaceful Hands Yoga …
** There will be no Monday/Wednesday classes with Jackie at Peaceful Hands Yoga Thanksgiving week. Classes resume on Monday, December 2.
** Our annual Open House/Yoga Class benefit for the Wildlife Center of Virginia is Saturday, December 7!
I hope you can join us … for class or just swing by for the Open House. I know this is a busy time for everyone, but it’s a rare treat to see one of the Wildlife Center’s animals up close. And, I’ll have plenty of treats, so invite a friend, too! The Center relies on the generosity of folks like us to make their life-saving work possible. All the details are here.
** I hope you take time to unroll your mat during this week of thankfulness. Here are some of the Thanksgiving blessings that I’ve shared in our classes over the years. Perhaps one (or two) could be a perfect fit at your table as you share love and gratitude with family and friends this week:
~ This timeless and inspiring Thanksgiving blessing from the civil rights activist W.E.B. du Bois is the one I share at the end of every Thanksgiving Yoga class: Give Us Thankful Hearts
~ Albert Schweitzer’s “Rekindling Our Light” inspiration: Rekindling Our Light
~ The Buddha explains why we should all be thankful: So, Let Us All Be Thankful
~ Instruction for the Gratitude Savasana and Energy Bridge: Thanksgiving Yoga ~ A Blessing, Part 1
~ A reminder of the “powerful energizer” that the spirit of gratitude is: Thanksgiving Yoga ~ A Blessing, Part 2
~ A poem of Gratitude from Harriett Kofalk: I Give Thanks
And … my favorite cartoon … ever.
I am thankful for our moments together … if you’ve unrolled your Yoga mat with me once, twice, or countless times over many years … I am grateful for the kindness and inspiration you give me. May you have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.
With Bushels Of Thanks, Jackie
