GOAL

How many times a day we truly pay attention to what you do, how we stand or move, what we eat?

Our lives seem to be fast and accelerated. We may feel there is no time for our goals. We may feel life passes without being able to take the time to celebrate. We may even loose the purpose.

We forget the lightness of life, we forget that our goal should be look for JOY in every day. But when you start consciously taking care of your body, a magic thing happens!

The practice of yoga and meditation brings this quietness and relax to your mind. It lets you time for yourself. It recharges your energy.

Through the food we eat, we connect to Nature, we feed and respect our body and ourselves. We all have different bodies and different needs. By understanding and giving what your body needs, you let vitality fulfill your life.

Accompanied by the natural elements.‐ the Ocean, the wind, the forest.‐ our goal for this week is to share tools to take home with you to ensure your look for joy everyday!
