A Little Bit of Luck, Freedom and Summer Lovin’

updog-gold-MD

July is blessed being the lucky no. 7  month of the year. Ruled mostly by the astrological sun sign Cancer, it’s a great month for us to connect with friends, family, build home and hearth. Getting together to share meaningful experiences is essential. “Life is like a river.” – Siddhartha. The energy of the year (based on the planetary activity and numerology) is about going with the flow! Cosmic forces are mostly contained in mutable signs so change and refinement is happening. Connect with nature. Relate to water. Do whatever it takes to create clarity, creativity and ease in your life. Stay connected to your deepest needs, focus on what matters most and cultivate healthy relationships.

Slow down, support your good life and know the times. Read our relevant resources Cafe AstrologyMystic MammaAstrostyles  and other sites… to check your own sun sign’s monthly astrology on our favorite astrologer Barbara Goldsmith’s youtube channel for so much more savvy insight on the cosmic currents and how you can engage your power!

Reconnecting to Nature & Growing your Greatness

taurus-bridge-MD

The fifth month of this incredible year, May holds many signs that point to the need to build, develop and work on what we already have rather than striking out in all-new directions. We are energized, re-evaluation our relationships to what brings us security, nourishes our sensibilities and reconnects us to nature, inside and outside. “Life is like a river.” – Siddhartha. The energy of the year (based on the planetary activity and numerology) is about going with the flow!

Intention, Energy & Action

lotus-gyan-extension-MD

It’s April, the fourth month, where energy revolves around our heart’s desires and expands from there, out into the current of creation and magic. Willingness to feel, to know and to grow is what it takes to manifest. Focus yourself on what matters most and nurture your intentions with positive thoughts and actions to support realization. Be careful to “choose battles wisely.” We are on a mission now and there’s no forcing nature. “Life is like a river.” – Siddhartha. The energy of the year (based on the planetary activity and numerology) is about going with the flow!

June thru December 2015: Monthly Newsletter Archives

warrior-3-tree-MD

dear community,

For good reason, this is our first blog post since last May. We got really busy last year analyzing what to do with pure prana’s second location at 101 N. Alfred Street in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. By the end of the 2015 Summer season, we knew we needed to wrap it up and consolidate, returning to the mothership at 100 S. Patrick Street. On December 19, 2015  we offered our final classes at Alfred and moved everything to the our original location and main site. We did so with great consideration and clarity, and crafted heart-centered communication to our community reflecting on our expansion and contraction, letting everyone know our intention and direction for 2016 forward. And here we are, March 1st still trying to seal the deal to completely release the final year of lease on the gorgeous space we built at Alfred and move on. We are poised for great change to come quickly. We are perfectly positioned at Patrick Street to consistently offer you yoga experiences that inspire your brilliance in body, mind and spirit so that you shine. May this Spring bring new life to all.

yours, in service,
natasha
