I believe the root of joy is gratefulness. Brené Brown once said, "I don't have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness - it's right in front of me if I'm paying attention and practicing gratitude." I do believe in Brown's philosophy. Studies have shown that the more you express thanks, the happier you are. So with that in mind, here is my gratitude challenge to you; I challenge you to write down what you are grateful for every day for 10 days. Start a gratitude journal and look at this challenge as a journey. Gratitude isn't just an assignment, but a habit. A habit that needs to be practiced and nurtured.
It's NOVEMBER...National Month of Gratitude! Many organizations choose to celebrate this in a variety of ways. For example, non-profits increase acts of charity to show gratitude, schools support a gratitude journaling practice, and organizations offer employees opportunities to give back to the community. In honor of National Gratitude Month, Live True Yoga will be participating in the simple act of giving to the Hanover Food Shelf, who services the surrounding cities including, Hanover, Saint Michael, Albertville, Corcoran, and Loretto. There will be a box located at the studio where we will be collecting food items and we strongly encourage you to participate in this generous act of giving.
Through the winter months our events and workshops will continue to expand and evolve as our community grows, so please stay tuned (wine and paint night coming in November/December). Also check out our special Thanksgiving schedule below.
I am ALWAYS very grateful for all of you. Your support each day, week, month, and year is so appreciated.

Chocolate and Wine Barre Event
Date: Friday, December 2nd
Time: 7:15-9:15 pm
Sip, savor, and strengthen! Chocolate is good for your health (in moderation, of course) and can help balance your hormones and heighten senses. Wine contains some of the same elements as chocolate: flavonoids and antioxidants, and moderate consumption can lead to the same effects. Barre needs no flavonoids or antioxidants, it is simply an awesome form of exercise! Exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy! Wine, chocolate and exercise... we think that sounds like a match made in heaven! All levels are welcome. Push yourself to break a sweat, plie deeper, and hold longer knowing that soon after the shaking sets in, there will be wine & chocolate.
Participants of the Wine, Chocolate, and Barre Event will be led through an hour of Barre and then will enjoy a variety chocolates and wines.
