How do you handle self-care?
I believe the transition from Summer to Autumn always hits us hardest. These last few weeks, we all try to get back into a routine as the leaves are falling and prepping us for our winter hibernation, (which means our Restorative December that everyone loves!)
For self-care this month, we were lucky this last month because we didn't have to go anywhere to enjoy the healing properties with two AMAZING teachers from out of town. First, Bonnie Hassan from Nashville, TN held a Reiki Healing Meditation Circle. Circles are funny, as Bonnie and I met 16 years ago and have circled back around. It was a beautiful evening filled with new experiences. We look forward to having her back in the Spring 2020.
Less than a week later, we were lucky to have Danielle Mercurio from Philadelphia to lead us through an enchanting evening of Kundalini Yoga, Pranayama, Chanting and a beautiful Gong Sound Bath. We can only hope we are on her tour path again soon!
Hopefully, you are able to visit the studio for a little of your own self-care this month, we have a few more exciting guest and events, you'll see below.
PS...Don't forget we are always looking for ways to help our planet, if you have something close to your heart please share! Here's what we are currently collecting:
1. Mascara wands for the Appalachian Wildlife Refuge
2. Caps to bottles (like water, sodas, etc) for Given Limb Foundation
Closed for Regular Classes
We are closed for evening classes on Wednesday, November 27th, and for all classes on Thursday, November 28th for observance of Thanksgiving.

Sterling's Focus for November: Chest Openings, Forward Fold and Neck Releasing
We use November to work on poses that will release the neck from chest opening standing poses to forward folds. We will use forward folds to release the multifidus muscle creating even more release to the neck. This is a good month to begin our "slowing down" prepping for Restorative December. As we allow the body to follow our natural rhythms, supporting self-care we will work toward improving our health. This is an excellent month for those suffering from high blood pressure, over stimulation, and soothes the nervous system.
Doterra Oil of the Month
$31.00 for 15 oz
November is a busy month with family gatherings, holiday shopping, decorating, and more. You can take a break from it all with a little bit of rest and relaxation with Lavender essential oil.
Here's some ways you can use lavender essential oil around the house:
· Add it to your skin care products to nourish your skin.
· Breathe it in by diffusing it or adding it to your bath/shower to promote a restful night's sleep.
· Put a few drops on your wool dryer balls to give all of your linens a relaxing, natural scent.
· Apply topically to your temples, the back of your neck, or your feet to help relieve the tension caused by a headache.
Lavender is definitely a must for many essential oils enthusiasts. It has so many healthful properties making it an easy one for beginners and a staple in the households of those who have been using oils for years. Experience it yourself! Sterling Yoga always has a small supply of essential oils ready to buy at the studio.
Sterling Yoga and Wellness Center always carries a small variety of dōTERRA oils, and free samples are available. All dōTERRA Essential Oil purchases can be made through STERLING'S PAGE, by contacting us, or by visiting us in the studio!
