“then, she began to breathe, and live, and every moment took her to a place where goodbyes were hard to come by. she was in love, but not in love with someone or something, she was in love with her life. and for the first time, in a long time, everything was inspiring.”
– r.m. drake
The Sunshine Factory combines movement, music and meditation with Eastern Medicine; offering you a truly unique studio experience. By making self awareness and breath the foundation of every class, a mental shift into mindfulness naturally softens frustration and struggle into pure enjoyment. A wide variety of class offerings, healing modalities and special events, provide numerous opportunities for you to learn, grow, heal, be challenged and discover, all of the ways that a practice of mindfulness can change your life.
A joyful practice which is driven by intention, can make activities you once struggled with feel almost effortless. With your breath as your foundation, you will learn to listen to your body; and you will gain a true understanding of the way your breath moves within you. The rhythm of your breath can be your guide, it can lead you to the path of least resistance; it can be that simple. You may decide to fight yourself, to ignore i.e. disrespect your body, to make it a struggle, to apply force instead of intention; you may make that choice every day. Eventually you will grow tired and decide to breathe instead. And when you do; when you finally stop fighting yourself, you find that the volume to your mind chatter has been turned way down and one day you will look up to find your ego has moved into the back seat along with any number of other things that no longer serve you. By focusing on what you can control, your breath and intention; you are changing the way you think.
By changing the way you think, you are effecting the energy in your body, as well as the energy you’re putting into the world around you. The way we think and feel is manifested in our bodies and on our faces. The changes that you truly deserve and desire, have to begin in your mind. And we begin, by simply learning how to breathe.
“When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.” – Buddha
