May is Mental Health Awareness month, and it’s a good reminder to take a peek into our own mental health, especially in a time and place where we are in a public health crisis. We have learned that our material, fast-paced, competitive culture is not conducive for health and happiness. This awareness inspires us to wake up to what's important--we must shift our priorities and how we spend our time. From a soul level, we are being asked to BE instead of DO.
This month, I want to introduce one of our Self Care Club® members and advocates, Marie Hernandez. A mother of a child with a diagnosed mental illness, Marie shares her story of struggle and how they take care of themselves through the ups and downs of borderline personality disorder.
We’re excited to begin our partnership with Radiant Yoga in Overland Park! Self Care Club members receive a 25 percent discount on 5 and 10 class passes (limited to one per person), along with two free guest passes to bring a friend with them to try a yoga class at Radiant. Dani Ashley has been a long-time yogi at Radiant Yoga, and personally recommends this studio. It’s where she got her start and trained to become a certified yoga instructor herself. So, no matter where you are in your yoga journey, or even if you haven’t started yet, Radiant offers an array of classes to meet everyone’s needs based on level of experience and yoga style preference.
