I don’t care if it’s in between holiday concerts, crazy work hours, open houses, or gift shopping. Find something you love to do, and do it! Maybe you grab a spin class or go walking. Maybe you do a few downward dogs before finishing up the errands. Go for a run or do Pilates before taking care of everyone else. Exercising helps to reset the body, burn calories, ease stress, and help you focus. Plus, it’s just fun and pretty darn joyful.And honestly, isn’t that what the holidays are about anyway? Read More
As Nourish Your Soul expands its reach and grows its community in Boston, we got to thinking about our mission as we take those steps forward. Our philosophy hasn’t changed since we first opened, but it seems like a great time to explain more of it, explain more about why we believe it, and share it with you.
Our Soul Series continues, spotlighting some of the vital and influential local voices in our community helping us connect our physical movement with inner strength.

To ground ourselves, we need to remove ourselves from the clutter in our minds and connect to the present moment. We literally need to ground ourselves to Mother Earth and connect to its energies. Grounding ourselves energetically is important for our mental, emotional, and physical health.
So what’s the best way to ground ourselves and connect to the energies of the earth? That’s as easy as it is simple: Walking barefoot in nature. The surface of the Earth holds subtle health-boosting energy that can recharge and heal. Rooting down into the earth provides us with a strong foundation to allow us to grow, blossom, and create.
What do we do when we can’t always take our shoes off? Here’s a list of things that I do:

That sounds simple, right? But it’s actually fairly complex. As we all know, in the reality of our daily lives, keeping your eyes on that prize can be pretty tricky.

Every time you’re feeling overheated this summer, remind yourself of this: The teachings of Ayurveda, yoga’s wellness branch, combine the five natural elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth) and put them into play as a way to deal with summer’s heat.

Today we’re welcoming another guest blogger, Gabrielle Rossetti. Gabby received her Yoga Teacher Certification from South Boston Yoga and her Kids’ Yoga Certification from the Open Doors Teacher Training Program. She began sharing yoga with the families she babysat for and quickly fell in love with teaching children. Her classes are playful and relaxing, incorporating fun games, singing, music, and traditional yoga poses.
