Happy New Year Friends!
Can you believe we are almost done with the first month of 2017? I started the year having an amazing desert adventure in Pioneertown, where I set the intention to focus this year on me. I am committed this year to fulling loving myself, to take care of my needs, my body, and my emotional health. I am focused on growing my breathwork practice. And to make more time to have fun and adventures. What are your intentions for this year? Have you taken the time to write them down on paper? It's so much more powerful to have your goals written down. Yet so many don't because we are afraid of not accomplishing them, and how that might make us feel. 2017 is not the year to focus on fear. I'm finding so many clients are feeling anxious and depressed due to world affairs. We really need to find love and compassion in everything. Yesterday I attended a lecture with a Buddhist monk and he said the focus for this year should be to remain present, to have compassion, and to be wise. And the way he remains present is by following the breath. Ah breathwork, it seems to be popping up all over the place. The New York Times recently published an article about the benefits of breathwork (controlled breathing). Keep on breathing my loves. I have a lot of plans for this year...including facilitating a breathwork retreat, having a monthly evening breathwork class, continuing the very popular Full Moon Meditation class, and I'm excited to announce I now have a beautiful space where I am holding private breathwork sessions. The world needs to breathe. The world needs to breathe in LOVE. Will you join me? Much love, Ana
Crystal of the Month:
I've been using selenite in my sessions and clients have described it as a very POWERFUL crystal. Some of the healing functions include moving stagnant energy. Shifting negative emotions, especially resentment and anger. And it helps to bring clarity to the mind and expand consciousness.
I'm excited to announce I'm now holding private breathwork sessions in Hollywood. Privates are an hour long breathwork and reiki session that's customized for YOU. We'll work on whatever you need help with and you'll leave feeling relaxed and with clarity. Book your session here.
My current song obsession is Rooting for You by London Grammar. If you've attended any of my classes recently you've heard it in a playlist or 3. I'll confess it made me cry the first time I heard it.
Here are this month's playlists:
The Universe Has Your Back
This is a must read!
It's an easy and quick read, full of affirmations, exercises, and a reminder that you are powerful and it's up to you to create the life you want.
"So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide." -Meredith Grey
