Restorative Workshop this Sunday!

Cape Ann Wellness

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Join us at North Shore Restorative Yoga this Sunday Evening November 19 from 6:30pm-8pm to individually and collectively practice GRATITUDE with a deeply healing Restorative Yoga Workshop with Katie Schroeder. Restorative yoga uses props-bolsters, blankets, blocks, sandbags and eye pillows to invite the body into simple, powerful, therapeutic poses that bring the body into balance. Restorative yoga is all about relaxing the body to release tension and stress. You will feel lighter and more connected to your body, mind and heart.

The theme of November is GRATITUDE for this body, for this mind, for this heart, for this life. This month we focus on what we can be grateful for by breathing in love and breathing out love while supporting our bodies to heal and harmonize in gentle Restorative poses. Feel the love and find the gratitude in this heart opening practice.

All levels, ages, no experience…

Happy Franksgiving?

I came across an interesting little Thanksgiving factoid I thought you might be interested in.  Apparently in 1939, the last Thursday in November (the traditional date to celebrate Thanksgiving) was late in the month.  At the time, it wasn’t considered  proper to begin Christmas prior to Thanksgiving (imagine such a world!) and retailers were worried about the bottom line in a shortened shopping season especially as the Depression effects lingered.  President Franklin D. Roosevelt moved Thanksgiving back a week to November 23 (like this year!) in order to allow the extra shopping week.  Did you know this?  Derisively, it was known as Franksgiving and resulted in certain and rapid response from our US Congress.  It’s an interesting story: Check it out here.
