Thanks for today’s session. And thanks for taking such good care of JT, he felt really nurtured and safe. We both needed that.
I’m bummed that I will be missing meditation tomorrow night.
I’ve been wanting to share with you how profoundly restorative yoga has affected my life and well being, and to share my gratitude with you for offering this, and being willing to do the ground-breaking work. Thank you! You are so beautiful!
I have been incorporating some of the soul and body nourishing techniques that you shared with me on our individual session. I will never forget that night, the deep peace I felt inside me. I have a little altar at the door, with flowers from the garden that I had not “bothered” to bring inside since I see them out in the garden. But it has been transformative to bring some beauty into my home. I have some beautiful things that I have gathered, crystals and shells and things that I leave there. And I light a candle to offer prayers. It has transformed how I feel in my home, grounded and at peace, not restless, like I should be outside working. Tending to my little altar helps to calm the voice of criticism I have had about my housekeeping habits.
I’ve also been practicing some meditation and gratitude prayers in the morning, waking up just before sunrise. I have felt recently uninspired and unmotivated, and waking up after a solid night’s sleep just feeling unrested, but mostly uninspired and unmotivated. And I’ve listened to the voice in me that says that sunrise is the medicine I need. So I’ve been going up the hill behind the tiny house and sitting in the chaparral listening to the bird’s morning chorus and giving my gratitude, trying some affirmations and short meditations, including breathing techniques and mudras, and journaling. When I finish this practice I feel at peace and full of gratitude, and inspired and energized. I am so grateful to have so many tools to connect me to the present moment, and the peace that can be found there.
JT and I have both been enjoying the warm oil self massage, what a nurturing practice, and with the amount of time we spend in the elements we both immediately felt the energetic shielding or buffer from exposure, and the ability to tend to the inward calm.
In combination with the restorative yoga postures and the beautiful, safe and nurturing space that you create at the yoga center, this is the most profound medicine I have ever experienced.
I did want to write something that you could use on your website as well. “With Brooke’s gentle guidance, I have come to know a profound peace within my body. I am deeply grateful. Restorative yoga is the most holistic medicine I have ever experienced.”
Congrats on your presentation and the amazingly supportive response you got in funding! I am so grateful to be one of your guinea pigs 🙂 I’ll be seeing you soon and often!
Much love and peace,
