Connection / (noun) :
causal or logical relation or sequence between individuals

with you, with them.
to gather, to give, to receive. 
a process.

There's something magical and electric when we can truly connect with those around us.

This month is all about connection for us. We want to get to know you and we want you to feel challenged to go outside of what YOU know about those around you. Making new connections with gratitude in your heart. Taking time to step outside of yourself and get to know someone new.

Connection is one of the biggest parts of the work we do at The Space. We believe that it is vital in the transformation of your body, heart and soul. Connection says "I feel you, I see you". Connection is uncharted ground of restoration. It takes intention and vulnerability.

In this season of harvest and Thanksgiving, lets step outside of what we know and into the abyss of what we have not learned. How will you begin to allow those around you to feel known? How will you connect on a deeper level? Going below the surface of the "How are you, I'm good" ritual. Beginning to ask questions. Beginning to establish more rooted relationships.

Its all up to us. (To you). To go the extra mile. Selflessly, showing up, palms open, ready to receive. Our challenge to you is that you put this is practice this month. Starting to show up in a different way for people you know and those you have not met yet. Start to see how it shifts your perspective, livens your soul, and curates a deeper sense of well being.

Because you can.

We love you so much and we are so grateful for you.

ASANA
make moves with us from just about anywhere
POSE : Wild Thing : Camatkarasana

photo : Liv Monte

Camatkarasana means "the ecstatic unfolding of the enraptured heart". This pose offers a heart opening, full body expression that is sure to rejuvenate the brain and the body. It opens the chest, lungs, shoulders, as well as the quadriceps and the hip-flexors. All the while, building strength in the shoulders and upper back.

HOW TO : Start in downdog. Find the breath. Three inhales and exhales. Inhale lift the right leg, bend, twist and open, bringing the right heel to the bum, beginning to tip backward, lifting the right hand off the ground. Allow the booty to land on the floor. Spring up and open, lifting the chest up towards the sky, left hand is planted, right arm reaches back and open. Allow the head to be heavy, reaching back, gaze follows. On inhalations, continue to lift the hips higher, keeping the left foot grounded. 

 Step out, move, reset. Begin again. 
Take care.
