Yoga this Week – February 7, 2016

“The body knows things a long time before the mind catches up to them. I was wondering what my body knew that I didn’t.”

Sue Monk Kidd, “The Secret Life of Bees”

Sometimes we get that visceral feeling in our bodies where the hair stands up on end, our gut tightens or our heart seems to have a trap door that opens unexpectedly.  Our bodies can lead us in directions our mind does not have the ability to perceive.  Our yoga practice helps to enhance our relationship to our own bodies and breath so we can be aware of subtle changes, signs and signals that keep us true to our intentions and on our path day after day.   When the mind and body are deeply involved with each other, our spirit if free to roam.  Connect to your body as often as possible; either with yoga asana, breath awareness, walking, standing, in conversation and talking.  Remind yourself that life is a felt experience of being in your body; are you in struggle, are you breathing fully, are you relaxed, are your shoulders squeezing up around your ears?  The way we hold our bodies says a lot about how we are feeling.  Stay connected…”The body knows things a long time before the mind catches up”.

Snow Day!

Greetings dear yoga enthusiasts,

Needless to say, no class this morning.  The road looks terrible outside my window and the plows are coming through as I type.  Cozy up, roll out your mat; this is the perfect time to try out a home practice if you haven’t already.  Try this:

Regular schedule next week.  See you then.  Be careful shoveling.  Go slow and breathe and remember to switch the shovel between hands to balance the twisting.

Shanti

Good Morning beautiful friends,

Hoping this cloudy morning finds you connecting to your inner light.  Your chakras are beautiful jewels of spinning light within your subtle body.  Sit for a moment and visualize them spinning from the root all the way to your crown.  Even a moment of visualizing your chakras spinning open,  releasing the negative and drawing in the positive,  creates equanimity in your body, mind and spirit that can lift your day to a higher level of feeling, seeing and experiencing.

Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart. ~
Marcus Aelius Aurelius

Greetings dear yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you fostering a sense of grateful anticipation for the day and week ahead. Acceptance of life circumstances does not mean to give in, give up or throw in the towel. Acceptance is looking at what fate has brought to your door, examining the facts with an open heart and clear mind and then from deep within gather the courage to do what you need or do – which in some instances is the courage to do absolutely nothing. Whenever we are at odds with something, feel “off-kilter” or are experiencing anxiety, it usually can be traced back to our inability to accept what is happening in the present moment. Acceptance enables us to enjoy the scenery of our lives the way it is, even if it is not what we expected. So dive in to the present moment of your life today and meditate on the areas that you meet with resistance; breathe a compassionate breath, bless your circumstances, love the people who join you on your journey with all your heart and find the peace and serenity that comes with true acceptance.

Greetings dear Yoga students,

 

Martin Luther King, Jr. describes Ishvara Pranidhana perfectly in the above quotation.  ; having Faith and surrendering to the process even when you don’t know where it will lead you.  The fact is we really never have a guarantee that our plans will work out.  I have experienced many times when fear led me to overthink, manipulate, and try to control every part of a situation,  only to wake up to the fact that all I had to do was relax, trust and be open to the unfolding, which many times was more wonderful than I could have ever imagined!  The yogic  niyama, Ishvara Pranidhana calls us to let go and trust that there is a divine plan working along side you.  Let go of results, trust the process and even when you don’t know where you are going, lift your foot and take that first step!

Yoga this Week – January 11, 2016 – No Friday Morning this Week

3

Greetings dear Yoga Students,

When you do your yoga practice,  do it for more than the obvious physical benefits.  Yoga gives us an opportunity to connect with that sacred self that lies beneath appearances, beyond belief systems and transcends even time.  Yoga ignites our curiosity and expands our capacity for growth to help create a more meaningful, healthy and vital sense of living, not just for ourselves, but for all we come in contact with.

“What’s Done is Done”

Shakespeare

Happy New Year Dearest Yoga Students,

Do not allow yourself to get stuck in the past.  What has happened is already gone.  Like the wake of a boat, it is behind you and does not have to define or determine the direction you will take.  Let go and allow what has happened to shape your future on its own.  Everything that has happened has led you to this moment.    You cannot change the past, you can look and learn but in the end you must let go and set your sights on the future.  Although the future is there wide open for anyone to change, we have a tendency to hang on to the unfulfilled wish to change the past and live with the mantra, “If only”… this simply is wasted energy.  What’s done is done…. direct your energy to the future: meditate in the present,  make plans, set intentions, transform your intentions into actions and let go of anything holding you back from creating the life you were meant to live….YOU are the one you’ve been waiting for!
