Endings and Beginnings

In one of my favorite books Their Eyes Are Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston wrote; “There are years that ask questions and there are years that answer.” What kind of year will 2018 be for you? It is commonplace for people to make resolutions for the new year. Recently I have changed that practice to one of setting intentions. In this blog, we will focus on how to set those New Year Intentions and make them truly meaningful and soul-centered. So, let’s take a moment to toast to the collective consciousness and do our own personal part to get closer to our own truth. Follow these steps to have a year full of purpose, focus, questions asked or questions answered.

Day in the life of Yoga Teacher Training at FLSM

As we quickly approach the early bird deadline for the upcoming FLSM Mindful Journey Yoga Teacher Training we are getting super excited about all the amazing things this training will offer. Part of the fun of this for us is developing a curriculum that embodies the FLSM spirit of bringing ones’ best self to the learning experience. Often, people are intimidated by what a YTT program would be like. We thought it would be fun to give you a little insider information. Here’s a sneak peek of what you would spend your time doing if you choose to make this commitment to yourself in 2018. Join us!

New ways to Learn ~ FLSM and Perceptual Thinking Patterns

Have you ever thought about going back to school but remember not feeling like you were really good at being a student? It is common for adults to recall their time in High School without the warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia. Often school, and learning, were painful processes, and thinking about going to school again can be daunting or bring up old memories full of fear and inadequacy. Here at Finger Lakes School of Massage we pride ourselves on individualized education, within the parameters of high standards. We are able to hold these high expectations because we teach our students about HOW they learn.
