It is with a heavy heart that I have decided that we need to be closed during this initial time when we are flying blind through this pandemic. I know that many of us struggle with mental health and times will get very tough. I would love to continuing offer services however I feel that public safety is vital right now.
I encourage you to take time to stretch, open your windows and breathe fresh air, call a friend, cry, sleep, read. This morning I followed with a facebook live guided meditation with Marissa Sullivan; it helped. Daya Yoga, our wonderful neighbors, are moving their classes online and we will try to get some Tigerlily content up online as well.
In the immediate short term, please take care of yourself, and if you need some guidance, feel free to text us. Steph and I will be monitoring the inbox remotely. We can also direct you to others who may be able to help- Michael Kay is still seeing patients for the time being in East Williamsburg, and most of our herbalists will be setting up phone consults.
If you suffer from chronic lung issues, I highly recommend starting daily qi gong. These gentle, tonifying exercises are a way to build strength over time. Thank you to our teacher Peter Deadman for posting those. Qi gong and nei gong are internal martial arts that are fantastic for qi cultivation. Perfect for these stressful, trying times. Here is a video of a Nei Gong basic set, also by Peter Deadman. If you feel stuck and or in panic mode, try this video of the Huff n Puff breathing exercise. This is an amazing exercise that I frequently show patients. It can bring up a lot, so start for as short a time as you need. Don't push.
Lastly, I just want to let you know that all of us at Tigerlily Holistic are working together, and even though I am writing this communication, all of our team is sending you love, and waiting and watching to see how to be of best service to you.
Wishing you safety, loving kindness and strength,
Ariel and Tigerlily team
