Today is Christmas and the 9th day of Santa’s tips for celebrating the holidays. It’s entitled, “Breathe” – Yogi Santa (image below) encourages you to relax and breathe in the midst of the frenzy and festivities of the season. (And while you say you don’t have time, taking a yoga class or two will help you with the whole breathing thing)
This is the twelfth and final post of Be Brave. Lose the Beige’s 12 days of New Years Resolutions.
Previous posts have urged Lady boomers to exercise their creative muscles, to infuse their lives with more color and fun, take mini adventures, evaluate their empty nests, and even examine their purses for excess baggage.
The ultimate objective of the exercises proposed in these posts has been to encourage Lady Boomers and other empty nesters to transform their lives a little bit at a time, through daily activities and choices. “Transformation” can be an intimidating concept. Little steps, however, make this objective easier to achieve. These exercises are designed to remove the obstacles obscuring who you really are. As Rod Styker, meditation and yoga instructor says, ” We are not transforming into something we aspire to. We’re transforming into the very thing we are innately- our best self.”
Here’s hoping you meet your best self this year.

I’m so honored and thrilled with the responses I’ve had from yoga studios and students to my “Om…for the Holidays” cards and products. Thank you so much and don’t forget to “om” your way through the holidays.
