Happy Halloween All!

Saturday night was our friends big Halloween bash and we took a party bus from there house over to a pub. The bus was honestly more fun then the pub! There is something about dancing while driving on a highway that just exhilarates me! 😉

After running out of time and needing to find a costumes  we decided to take find anything around the house to see what we could come up with. I ended up being a Hippie ( go figure)  and Perry a rock-star.. Simple and easy, and we didn’t spend a dime! so it was a win win for us.

Today I have a Yoga Flow class and I wanted to incorporate the Halloween festivities into the lesson plan. I truly believe you should step on your mat and just have fun. So this is me encouraging playing and fun while using a holiday as an excuse!

I call this sequence :

There is no illusion greater than fear

We all have them. But it’s safe to say that the bulk of our fears exist as delusions from our minds and our egos.

This Halloween Focus on what you fear. Is there a reason to be scared? Or are there merely an illusion created by your mind?
