Happy New Year!
Happy Full Moon!
Oh, Happy Day!
Instead of writing a long list of goals or resolutions or things to let go this year I have instead decided to focus on one thing: compassion.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary compassion is defined as a sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it. I want to be compassionate towards myself, others and the world. I am still determining just how to do all of that, as it seems like a big undertaking. I will start simply. Self affirmations and positive self talk. Listening, really listening, to others when they are speaking. Supporting ideas, business and communities that align with my heart. It is a start, but there is so much room to grow!
How do you cultivate compassion in your life?

In other news, I have several classes on the schedule for 2018. I am so excited! Check them out here. I am still subbing as much as possible #subbingadventures so keep an eye on my Instagram and Facebook page.
Peace, love and namaste,
Kristin (and Luna)
P.S. I received a beautiful “Practice You” journal by Elena Brower as a gift and cannot wait to dive in… so many yoga class themes and writing prompts waiting to happen!
