January 2018 is Here!

If you are a “New Year’s Resolution” person you may be well on your way to your new goal.  If you are a “New Year to start something New person” you may still be looking for that new “thing” to try out and see where it goes!

Personally, I am more the second person than the first.  It really doesn’t matter though which person you are or if you take on neither of these.  Often times we stress ourselves out at this time of year thinking that if we don’t have that “New Shiny Goal” in place than we have already failed for the year before we can succeed, or if we take something on and in the first week something happens and we can no longer commit to it that the whole year is now blown…

Hogwash! (as my mom would say!)

A New Year only holds the meaning YOU/I attach to it. We can actually start and stop goals at anytime and it means nothing about who we are or how the rest of the year will go if we do.

Mindset is everything in the game of life, in my opinion. The moment I make myself wrong or something wrong that is going on around me is the moment that I have gone down the rabbit hole and will spend the next week/month/year trying to dig myself out of it.

Give yourself the freedom to explore this January. To explore what it is that lights you up and when you discover it….DO MORE OF THAT! (Whatever it is)

Do not allow yourself to dive deep into the rabbit hole of destruction that wrecks your entire year before it is started. Make 2018 the year of exploration and see what opens up!

Just a suggestion to take on as we move forward this month.

Happy vibes coming your way!

Much love and success to this new year for you in 2018!

Class Notice for Oscar Romero Tuesdays

Dear Clients:

I have been tracking all the classes that are currently running at the Oscar Romero location to see what is working and what is not.  The truth, is that I have been looking over the numbers and Tuesdays have been quite slow since July and I have actually been paying out-of-pocket to run Tuesday night class.

What this means is that effective November 1, 2017 I will no longer be running Tuesday night classes.

The GOOD news!

All other classes will continue to run and your are still good for use at Mondays 4pm (College/Bathurst) location, all Wednesday (6:45pm), Thursday(7:00pm) classes and Friday (9:30am) classes at Oscar Romero location.

Sincerely,
Tammy

Shifting Bad Moods Quickly

Yesterday I was about to teach a class and literally the entire class walked in the room in a bad mood. I have never experienced an entire class in a bad mood before.

I must say as an instructor it was rather over-whelming.

Once everyone got settled in, I stopped the music. I could not step over the bad mood’s that were playing out in the room. In fact, some people were even being bad with one another.

My first thought was…”is there a full moon coming?”

To which I found out later….yes…yes there is.  (This all plays out more later on…)

As I stopped the class and had to raise my voice over what was happening in the room I asked everyone to take a DEEEEEPPPPP breathe and raise their arms slowly up and down….keep breathing deeply and after about 6-8 deep breaths, I asked them to go to their HAPPY place in their thoughts and as they kept breathing deeply I asked each person to share where there happy place was.

Within 5 minutes, the mood shifted to calmness and within another 5 minutes, they were all calm and starting to show signs of peace and happiness.

The music could now come back on…

It really took something to shift the energy in the room and what I got really present to is how energy, whether positive or negative can impact how we show up in our daily lives.

Whether it be something that has happened to us or is an effect of our environment, we are susceptible to displaying symptoms or patterns that will show up and sometimes without us even realizing and we just think we are in a “bad mood”.

The practice of just stopping and breathing deeply and disconnecting from whatever we are upset about can ultimately shift where our whole day may be headed.

Normally I would have used music to pump up and shift the room, however, yesterday it really was about stopping, breathing and getting present to a place that we think about that makes us smile.

Whatever it may take for you to stop and get present to something bigger than what you think the problem is in front of you, trust me, it is worth it to stop and breathe and shift your day before it goes any further down that rabbit hole.

Ps: FULL HARVEST MOON happens this Thursday October 5.

Be aware and be present to new energy shift that may or may not rock your emotions.

Be well my friends.

Much love, Tammy6144327_m

Aging Is A Gift….

I love aging!

What?!!! Yep! I said it! I do not worry or feel bad about it at all….  Here is why…

With age comes little wrinkles around the eyes that tell a story of one’s life.

Aging brings on wisdom that in itself is beautiful as well.

There is nothing to fear as we age….it is all a part of life and without it…we cease to exist.

So embrace the wrinkles and love who you are every minute of everyday! Aging is a gift that many do not get the opportunity to do.

Live Life. Laugh Lots. Make Memories.
