Anyone else wondering where this year went??? The older I get, the faster time seems to go by. Even when making a conscious effort to stay present and live in the moment, it seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day, especially during this time of the year.
The holidays tend to be a challenging time for many. From spending time with the family, which can be very triggering. To the expense of the holidays and the stress of traveling. To reflecting on the year and perhaps feeling disappointed that you are not where you hoped to be by this time. I recently shared in a social media post about the struggles of being a small business owner/self employed. It’s hard to build a business from scratch, it’s also lonely to work alone from home and financially it’s a constant struggle. And I wonder if it’s possible (financially) to continue following my passion. And old stories come up about where I should be in life at my age and those voices can be so mean and make me feel like a failure. Yet, every time I am at a crossroads and pleading with the Universe, I get a miracle and a wink telling me to keep on going.
I was recently invited to lead a breathwork healing session at the #weallgrowlatina wellness summit next Spring. I am over the moon for the opportunity to bring breathwork to a huge community of Latina entrepreneurs. I have also recently gotten so many beautiful emails and messages from you about how breathwork has helped to change your life. It has been the fuel I needed to keep going and continue to trust that everything will be okay. That in the big picture everything is okay, actually things are more than okay in my life. And also, consciously breathing continues to help me maintain my sanity and peace of mind.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all of your support this year. For connecting with your breath. For being vulnerable. For showing up and doing the work. For trusting me to guide you. For all of your referrals. I am grateful to know you and to have you be apart of my life. I have four classes before the end of the year. Hopefully I will be able to see you in person and wish you a beautiful and peaceful holiday, full of love and joy. And when things get overwhelming, remember to pause and connect with your breath, your heart, and our beautiful earth.
Sending you much love, Ana
The Perfect Holiday Gift
Instead of the usual holiday gifts, how about giving a loved one (or yourself) the gift of breathwork? Get 25% off when booking a private session from now until the end of the year. A private breathwork session is an hour long intuitively guided, personalized session that helps you release what's been holding you back, move stuck energy, heal, and leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. And if you don't live in LA, I also do breathwork session via Skype. Book your session here.
Making playlists for class and private sessions is one of my favorite things about breathwork.
