Mindful Monday: Season of Gratitude


Happy Monday, radiant yogis! WOWZAH! What an amazing week we had! The weather, the extra hour of sleep and DA CUBS!! Blessings abound as we enter into this season of gratitude. Take a moment to think of what you are grateful for in your life! An attitude of gratitude can really shift our perspective and make what we have exactly enough.

I’m so grateful for the Cubs historical victory as it has brought the world together in one level of consciousness – truly an example of one love, one energy and how we truly are all connected where it matters most. The Cubs victory was the seventh largest gathering in human history!  As we head to the polls tomorrow, we remember that we all live in the most amazing country in the world, and we all want the same things for our families.

I’m also so grateful for the women and men who serve and have served this great country of ours; people who are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that all Americans are safe from harms way. Yoga By Degrees is teaming up with the Wounded Warrior Project, a veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following September 11, 2001, to present our GRATEFUL WARRIOR CHALLENGE.

Here’s how it works:

Just sign up at any of our six YBD locations (it’s FREE to join) and take 22 classes in 30 days beginning on Veterans’ Day, Friday, November 11 through Saturday, December 10.

We’ll donate $10 to the Wounded Warrior Project for each of our students who complete the challenge! And for every class that you take, you’ll be automatically entered to win WWP branded items that you can wear with pride along your journey to mark your milestones and show your support of our veterans.

I’m so very grateful to each and every one of you who comprise this amazing community of people who come together to spread love and light and gratitude and peace each and every day.

Have a great week, yogis! Next week we’ll talk about the Niyamas, our second limb of yoga! Until then, breathe, sweat and SMILE!
