Being Snowed in can be such an opportunity to enjoy slowing down, catching up on some reading, spending time on your mat or cuddling in to watch a good movie.

Hope by Wednesday night we are all cleared out and ready for our 7:15pm class.

If you are out in the snow, remember to stretch before, after and during.  If you get the urge, the snow is a great place to do a headstand!!

 

Peace & Love

Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

Author Unknown

Greetings dearest yoga students,

How many times do we find ourselves “bent out of shape” when things don’t go quite the way we had planned.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be flexible enough to flow moment to moment in our life adjusting instead of reacting to the situations that occur?  Think about how much more peaceful life would be.  Sometimes all it takes is a step back, a moment or more of reflection to think about our part in the situation and to shift our focus on a solution instead of bringing all of our energies into the problem.  This does not mean allowing our personal boundaries to be crossed or negative behavior to continue in or around us.  It means taking a step back and being flexible enough, open enough to see the reality of what is happening.  To focus our desire on the truth and see where we can adjust and make changes so that we contribute to the solution.  Perhaps in some situations flexibility is simply moving towards acceptance of what we cannot change with compassion and love for all those involved, including ourselves. 

What if the only New Years Resolution we had was to simply love ourselves More?

Saturday Morning, March 7th at 8:45  to 10:30am - Workshop with Kim Williams (Kishori)

Prana, Teja and Ojas: Vital Essences of Transformation

Yoga is an inner alchemical process through which we can develop higher consciousness. We each have the capacity within us to go beyond ordinary human awareness to reach a state of Self-realization.   Prana, Tejas, and Ojas  support health, creativity and well-being. They provide the foundation for deeper yogic and meditational practices.   We will especially focus on how to cultivate Ojas as that is the foundation on which our yoga practice rests. It is responsible for our immunity and on a deeper level, our sense of well-being or our bliss body. Ojas is directly linked with the essence of divine love within and can be cultivated through bhakti yoga and a lifestyle full of wholesome pleasures.

Co-creating Your Life Workshop Tonight at 7pm

There is still time to join us tonight!  Text me at 839-0644 if you would like to come.

Meditation with aromatherapy, journaling, creating, visualizing our dreams into action! 

Co-Creating Your Life – A Vision Board Workshop

Thursday, January 22nd 7-9pm

 -

“Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment.”

   

Enlightenment happens, not in some far away distant esoteric place, but in the everydayness of life.  Enlightenment is an appropriate response to your inner callings and a willingness to act from your highest, intuitive self.   A Vision Board is a collection of images, words, affirmations or drawings that serve as a spirit-led guide for discovering and acknowledging what your soul is yearning for.   The universe wants to support your efforts to live a life filled with joy, abundance, adventure and purpose.   It is within the effort of creating the Vision that brings clarity as well as focus to your intentions so you can begin to live your life by your own design, free of fear based judgments or cultural pressures.

=

The New Year is a great time to open your mind to more than traditional New Year’s resolutions, to have fun exploring your inner desires and create a fun reminder of the things that excite, endear and provoke you to live an inspired life!

-

This workshop will consist of a centering meditation, a simple writing exercise and choosing images and paisting them on a piece of oaktag.  Each participant is asked to bring 3 to 5 magazines of random genres to be cut up and shared, a picture of yourself that projects joy and happiness, and a small journal or notebook.  All other supplies will be provided.

-

Cost is $15

Please reserve your spot for this special workshop.

No Class this Monday Evening – Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

hari om tat sat rock

The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Greetings dear yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you well and enjoying the receptive energy of this winter season.  I love the term “disciplined nonconformists” that MLK so eloquently states are the “Hope of a secure and livable world”.      A life of discipline (Tapas in yogic terms) affords us the freedom to operate from our higher selves, confident even when we are going against cultural norms. When we hear our inner calling, it takes persistence and faith to have the courage to follow through with what we hear, even if those around us might raise an eyebrow or fear we are going in the wrong direction.  Be still, listen, be disciplined in your practices of ethical living in body, mind and spirit,  which is what yoga practice is all about.  Yoga is to become pure in all facets of our lives so we can act from that place of calm abiding, wisdom and love.  Yoga literally means to yoke, to be self controlled, to be disciplined so we can be the ones that  dare to step out into the light;  for the hope of a secure and livable world lies within us.

 ” The Past and the Future is a joke to me now. I see that they’re nothin’. I see they ain’t here. The only thing that’s here is you and me…..I love you. Not, not like they told you love is….[the story books are bull],  love don’t make things nice, it ruins everything! It breaks your heart, it makes things a mess. We, we aren’t here to make things perfect. Snowflakes are perfect, stars are perfect. Not us! Not us!”   
 Ronny Cammareri, “Moonstruck”

  download (10)

 The above quote is one of my all time favorite movie lines.  We are not here to be perfect, for our lives to look flawless, to create what society’s idea of a beautiful life is.    We are here to have our hearts broken a thousand times because we are meant to experience the oceans of emotions our life is full of.  We are here to experience the wonder of being human; with all its hills and valleys,  like the moon we continually cycle through a myriad of phases to become whole again.  As we near the end of another year, embrace this truth:   That loving, and being truly vulnerable in your life doesn’t always look nice and that truly living wholeheartedly means taking the risk that sometimes your heart will break; sometimes you will make a  mess.

 

Our Yoga practice helps us remember that we are perfect just the way we are and that our lives our beautiful as they are.   Within our practice we may fall down,  sweat,  and sometimes struggle just to bear the truth of our bodies and minds but when  we get back up again and   return to our mats, “We breath and something in us softens, makes space for the imperfections”.  So let go of the storybook idea of how your life should look.  Let go and enjoy the scenery of  today.  Be vulnerable, be open, allow grief, joy, success and failure, falling down and getting back up to all be part of the great tapestry that is your life.  When you reach into the beauty of imperfection;   the crooked tree, the moon’s craters,  the clouded sky, tears in a loved one’s eyes, experience it fully, turning away from nothing that you find.  The messes will be there,  the heartaches will surface, the past and future are but memories and dreams, breathe it all in and find your joy in being present through it all for yourself and those around you.

New Year Detox – Saturday, January 3rd at 8:45am

images (29)

Come and clear body, mind and spirit with an all levels detox flow including a guided chakra meditation and yoga nidra.

We all tend to indulge in rich foods around the holidays but detoxing is more than just physical.  We also may experience emotional heaviness, grief, elation followed by sadness or just plain exhaustion with a sense of being out of balance!

Class will begin with asana infused with flowing,  twisting, forward bending, and kriyas (cleansing practices) for the body, followed by a chakra clearing meditation for emotional grounding and ending with deep yogic relaxation to enliven the spirit.

symbols

Please reserve your spot as soon as possible for this special Saturday morning class.  We need at least four students to sign up for class to run. 

**Special Note:  Please try not to eat anything heavy for at least 2 hours prior to class as we will be doing cleansing kriyas, pranayama and twisting.

 Together
We call down grace,
and gaze without wavering into the fires of creation
We find the place where
Love embraces fear and tears taste like faith
We let our radiance be revealed in laughter and in longing
We hold the whole of life, sweet grapes and bitter, healing herbs
We hold until we overflow
and offer back the gifts that we’ve received
The vessel never empties.
The growing love between us keeps it filled

This poem, so eloquently, expresses how I feel about our sweet yoga kula (community of the heart)!   Thanks to all of you who attended the winter solstice celebration and for all your generous donations.  A big thank you as well to all who have attended classes, walks, outings or events here over the course of the year.  We have shared laughter, tears, courage, nature’s beauty,  embraced the changes, and found peace among each other.  Great friendships have taken root and steady practices bloomed.  Many blessings for this Holiday Season to you and yours!

Om shanti, shanti, shanti!!  May there be peace, peace and perfect peace everywhere.
