Same time, same place







Are you having trouble committing to your meditation practice? One of the easiest ways to make it a daily habit is to set up a schedule for yourself. Plan to sit in the same place at the same time each day and meditation will become a part of your daily life.

Where you sit doesn’t need to have a special blanket, statues of deities or mala beads (eventually you may add these items as they start to be a part of your practice). It just needs to be a place in your home that you designate as your special meditation spot.

When I lived in NYC and space was limited I cornered off a small section of my closet for meditation. At that time I didn’t have a meditation cushion or anything else, I just knew that area of the closet was my mindful space. In my current home I have chosen an area that isn’t used often and set up my meditation cushion so when I go to meditate the area already feels peaceful to me.

Live Light Practice:

Choose an area in your home where you will use it only for meditation. If you have a meditation cushion or a blanket you like to sit on for meditation set it down so when you go to meditate the space is ready.

Then set up a time each day that you will regularly mediate. For example: at 8am each day I will meditate for 10 minutes.

Let me know how it goes!

Going OM








Recently I had the pleasure of leading a wellness vacation in Thailand. It was a wonderful group of people and a fabulous time exploring the culture of bustling Bangkok and the quiet nature outside of Chiang Mai.

After the amazing trip to Thailand I felt I needed to stop and chill out. So, since my trip I have been laying low. I found coming home to a frigid winter has inspired me to pause and take time to reflect.

Taking time to stop and not plan has allowed me to enjoy the holidays with my family. Now with the New Year approaching I am starting to look ahead, and wonder what is next?

In 2014 one big change is happening for me that I would like to share with you – my husband and I are moving to Boston! I’ll be honest, I never thought I’d really leave NYC. Now that it is official and we are moving on New Years Eve I am getting excited! It is a whole new adventure.

What does my move to Boston mean for yogis in NYC/NJ? Although I won’t be there to teach in person you can take my classes online, work with me via skype, or meet more for one of my retreats in the fall 2014, or spring 2015. (Spoiler – Yoga + Yarn is back & in 2015 we are heading to Vietnam! Email me for more details – retreats@lizalaird.com).

I’ll keep you posted via facebook, twitter, and my blog. Stay in touch and let me know how I can help you in 2014. Remember – live light, because everything is already okay.

Thank you to all of you for a wonderful year and looking forward to 2014! Much love and Happy New Year!!!
