October Theme: Generosity

How do we incorporate the generosity we find on our mats with the outside world?  Personally, when I set intentions for my practice, I often set personal intentions. At the end of class I like to encourage myself and my students to appreciate the self-care, generosity and compassion found on the mat. With that, I like to encourage the idea or "plant the seed" of noticing that we all crave that same kind of care. This feeds into allowing yourself to be generous in your own practice so you can be generous with that same care and compassion to others.

October is filled with so much closing in - the dying leaves around us, the cold weather - that we
often relate to the same closing and coldness. This theme brings a positive light to a month that could use more generosity.
