Namaste as Growing Up On OM officially welcomes you to summer!
Today was the Summer Solstice – the first official day of summer (although, I don’t know about you, but I feel like summer started a while ago). The first day of summer comes simultaneously as a relief (Yay! There is time still!) and a sign that it’s time to put the pressure on those intentions for new beginnings. As a yoga teacher, the Solstice – especially in NYC – feels even more salient than a national holiday; it’s the yogi’s international holiday!
The following is how I spent the longest day of the year.
