“Self-care is not selfish or self-indulgent. We cannot nurture others from a dry well. We need to take care of our own needs first, so that we can give from our surplus, our abundance. When we nurture others from a place of fullness, we feel renewed instead of taken advantage of.” —Jennifer Louden, The Woman’s Comfort Book
Join Yoga Teacher and Life Coach Bridget Keller each month for a 2-hour mini-retreat experience offering:
- restorative asana,
- yoga nidra (guided meditation while in savasana) and
- brief exploration around what it means to care for self.
January's theme centers around the vital skill of self-compassion.
“You can have compassion for yourself-which is not self-pity. You’re simply recognizing that ‘this is tough, this hurts,’ and bringing the same warmhearted wish for suffering to lessen or end that you would bring to any dear friend grappling with the same pain, upset, or challenges as you.” —Rick Hanson, Just One Thing
