#Ruralist: "We’re made up of space, air, fire, water and earth. In the Northeast we experience the seasons with distinction and have an incredible opportunity to observe how the cycles and rhythms of the seasons change both around us and within us. During the winter, the body, like the natural world, is weak from fall’s death cycle and needs winter’s deep rest to reinforce its strength for spring. Winter holds a special opportunity for introspection. Trees and animals are always showing us how to live. In the winter they retreat and hibernate. The cold also encourages us to stay indoors so we can explore the benefits of quiet and stillness—to make time to develop and engage in self-care." - TaraMarie Perri, founder of @perriinstitute (📷 @pbcrosby | interview @jillianschein) Join @luminousarchitecture tonight at 6:30pm in Union Square for this week’s Fall Seasonal Yoga Series.
