What is Morning Dharma?
We all seem to be operating at the speed of light and with all of the ‘wonderful’ technological advances to make our lives easier, our societal mantra seems to be “I just don’t have enough time.” If you had more time in your day, what would you do with it? Spend it with family & friends, take better care of your health, make home cooked meals, start and finish that passion project that you’ve been thinking about for years?
Hal Elrod (Author of The Miracle Morning) offers a simple solution for creating more space in your life for the things that are important to you: Wake. Up. Earlier. (If you’re saying no freaking way, PLEASE keep reading!)
As with a lot of things in our lives, the simplest things are not always the easiest. Until my dear friend and yoga teacher Christa challenged me a few years ago to start the Miracle Morning challenge, I would sleep until the last possible moment and then rush rush rush through the rest of my day feeling totally depleted at the end.
Since then, I’ve made great changes in my own life – including completing my yoga teacher training and becoming an instructor to running 25K trail races. I never would have believed that I would become a morning person but now it is my favorite part of the day!
If finding more space in your day sounds good to you, I invite you to wake up early and start your day on Tuesdays and Thursdays with my Morning Dharma class. Getting plenty of sleep is important, too, so you might want to go to bed a little earlier.
Each month, we explore a new theme and in 60 minutes, we stretch out our morning muscles, flow to get the prana moving, and sit in short meditations to strengthen our minds. This is an all-levels class and starts promptly at 6:30 and ends promptly at 7:30 to get you on your way.
If mornings just can’t work for you — no worries! I totally get that work and kid schedules may not allow you to join us. Check out the library for recorded classes that you can access whenever is convenient for you!
Please reach out with any questions, concerns, or if you just want a little extra motivation!
Yoga blocks and straps are sometimes used in class but never required.
