As we move forward into spring, we begin to peel off the layers of clothes, shoes, excess weight needed for the cold winter months (at least that’s my excuse for adding some extra weight on my body) and the winter boots. We love seeing the flip-flops and slip-on shoes outside the studio doors. It warms our hearts to feel the sunshine come in the windows and to lower the heat.

Sometimes we acquire too much clothing in our closets. It happens slowly and surely. The holiday gifts, the special occasion outfits, the sales, etc. Cleaning out and letting go can be really hard especially if an item has a sentimental value. My rule of thumb

We can most times, change things for the better that are maybe dragging down our energy and zest for living. Why does it sometimes take a big blow to plan for a change?

As a guest writer this week, we welcome my dearest sister, Janet Fash to share her story. Anyone that knows Janet recognizes her as the civil activist, chief lifeguard, school teacher, but most of all, one of the most authentic people you will ever meet.

We are grateful to have this simple practice called yoga that calls on all human beings everywhere to be happy, healthy and peaceful.  There are no expectations, no judgements, no perfection, we are just trying to support one another and feel

March 1 is Ocean Bliss Yoga’s One Year Anniversary at the beautiful Belle Harbor Yacht Club. It is hard to believe one year has gone by.

Gratitude: acknowledging blessings, showing appreciation and kindness
