The Sun is in Leo
The Sun is in Leo now until August 22.
We should celebrate our existence, let our true self shine, and release our inner child. It’s also time to cultivate passions and talents!
We will see 2 full moons in Leo: 1 tonight (July 23) and one on the last day of it’s reign. Tonight is an ideal time to break free from all the junk that has piled up. This full moon might also help us be innovative with solving problems.
Watch out for: jealousy, pride, and egocentrism! The community we live in is just as important as the individual self.

Asana of the Month: Boat Pose
Begin seated with your knees bent.
Place your hands behind your knees, lift your chest, engage your core (not just your abs, your back, too!), and tilt back, balancing on your buttocks.
Keep your face soft and breath evenly.
Stay here for 5-10 rounds of breath, or for an added challenge, bring your arms parallel to the floor and straighten your legs.
In any variation, be cautious of your low spine and avoid rounding.
