YOGA con ALMA's newsletter - January 2019

By Dr. Alma Duran

TUE JAN 01, 2019

Dear Yogis and Yoginis:

Happiest 2019 to you!

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for such an amazing year. 

2018 was a whirlwind of all the stuff of life: incredible challenges, tremendous joy, and everything in between. Like myself, I know so many friends who feel battered and mystified by the state of the world. How do we reach through these challenging times?

More than ever, I feel a profound sense of urgency to pause, reset, and renew; to find greater clarity and spaciousness in myself and continue forward in an open and connected way. The beginning of a new year is the perfect season to rediscover the deep embrace of an integral Yoga practice, along with all its gifts. But: What is an integral Yoga practice? That which is not oversimplified to bodily postures, but also includes meditation, breathing exercises, philosophy, and the whole array of tools that this ancient discipline offers us to calm the mind-body-soul.

In this spirit, I am delighted to present to you a summary of the Yoga sessions and related events that I will offer in January:
