An introduction to YOGA: Meet Jessica

[Enlighten Me]: YOGA
“Yoga teaches us that we’re not in control”

– Jessica Cervelli, Yoga Teacher

Hi there,
These uncertain times can conjure up a lot of anxiety and stress. But YOGA is helping many people find a sense of calm.
There’s a lot of buzz around “Mindfulness” – being in the present moment. Well, you could say Yoga is like mindfulness – with movement. It can calm the senses, help us feel more balanced, and even be a ‘Reset’ for body, mind and soul!
Meet Jessica Cervelli – a Santa Cruz (California) based Yoga Teacher…
In this short interview, Jessica talks us through a few benefits (and some challenges) from this ancient practice, and much more. Jessica is a gentle guide, gifted at teaching real presence.
May this video be an invitation to be with your breath and ‘be here now.’
Give yourself a little TLC.
Enjoy!…

A DOSE OF HOPE: The Rainbow Connection

[A DOSE OF HOPE]:

Rainbows may be just beautiful illusions, but the hope they represent is very real….

While children around the world have been drawing rainbows during the Corona crisis, we’ve been filming real rainbows here at the beach in California.

Here’s 1 minute of hope…

 

Take in these Rainbows for a moment of Reflection.

Gaze at Mother Nature’s multi-colored beauty.

We can always reach out – and be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud. And appreciate a moment of wonder in own dark times too.

Pass it on… and let’s spread hope.

Thanks to all the first responders and essential workers for their remarkable courage and hard work to look after us all…

And thanks to all the children who remind us to hold on to hope, (and to chase the rainbow!).
