YOUR SELF-CARE STREAK

Transform Holiday Hell into Comfort and Joy

 

‘Tis the season to feel Too Busy, overwhelmed, and out of control!

You may abandon yourself to caring for others, lose touch with the activities that make you feel good and keep you balanced, and find yourself indulging in compensating activities that meet a need in the moment but leave you feeling crummy later.  Also – it’s dark!  And cold!  It’s hard to translate the movement that works for you in friendlier climates to this challenging season.  You might be tempted to isolate, watch Netflix, and just wait for winter to be over.

 

Winter offers us an invitation to slow down and recenter. What if...

...you could transform the holiday rush into a reflection of the desires you unearth – to balance care for friends, family, and self, to quietly recharge between social occasions, to generate and embody warmth and connection, steadiness and calm, to enjoy the gifts of the winter outdoors, to discover how best to support and love yourself, and to feel proud of and inspired by sustaining self-care through a challenging season?

 

How?  Together, we can.

Your Self-Care Streak will help you identify and sustain your favorite and most effective self-care activities through the duration of our class and beyond.  We’ll create supportive and wise community both online and in-person.  We’ll meet for discussion and support online on Tuesday evenings, and for all-paces-and-distances-welcome movement on Saturdays.  Together we’ll inspire each other to create the calm and bright holiday season we yearn for.

 

Dates and Times

On Zoom, Tuesdays 11/29, 12/6, 12/13 at 7pm.

These 40-60 minute sessions will be recorded.  Join us even if you can't make every session, or live outside of Bend!

In-person, around and about Bend, Saturdays 12/3, 12/10, 12/17 at 8:30am.

Walk or run, at your own pace, whatever distance suits you, over ~60 minutes. We'll visit a local coffee shop afterward!

 

Your guide

I am a Duke-certified Health Coach, an RRCA-certified running coach, and a longtime massage therapist.  8 years of coaching beginning runners has convinced me that people who are exploring new movement, new habits, or new dreams for themselves need safe spaces, wise community, and abundant welcome. 


A recent experience with breast cancer reminded me of how I long to revel and rest in a winter that is quiet, stark, and brilliantly lit by stars… like you.  I hope you’ll join us in this exploration this December.
