I hope you are finding peace in this New Year, taking time to reflect and nourish a way of life that serves you.    A few notes regarding our yoga practice:  Pranayama:  Deep breathing oxygenates the body, infuses and revitalizes our cells.  External demands including work, daily stresses, important commitments, and variant demands act upon our body’s internal holistic thermometer.  These demands stimulate the way we view ourselves and influence us both in a conscious and unconscious way; this is deemed proprioception.  We can support the body’s healthy proprioceptive function and combat these demands by incorporating the holistic practice of yoga.  Yoga practice is not merely a physical exercise; it requires every physiological body function as well as unconscious and levels of awareness to construct the perfect bridge connecting the mind and body to conscious and unconscious levels of awareness.  The body finds its proprioception with great efficiency in yoga practice by
