Yoga this Week – November 15, 2014

 May all hearts be at ease. May our contentment promote the energies to alleviate suffering and turn ignorance into knowledge. May the cultivation of santosha guide us to courageous action, deeper community and greater love of all sentient beings.

                                          Swami Shraddhananda

namaste flow

Greetings Dearest Yoga Students,

Santosha is one of the Niyamas outlined in the eight limbs of yoga.  Niyamas are ethical practices that cultivate inner peace and awareness about ourselves.  Santosha means contentment.  To be content with whatever is.  Having the good fortune of participating in a workshop with Todd Norian this past week enlightened me to a new way of thinking about Santosha.  He spoke about life being a series of problems that need our constant attention, creativity, compassion and openness.  We all know that once one issue, obstacle or problem is solved, right behind it rolls in another one, like waves on the ocean; the issues may seem bigger, smaller or take a different shape, but never the less, they keep coming.  What Todd so eloquently eluded to is that all we really need to change is our perspective; to change our obstacles into stepping stones on which we grow.  To be content in the action of solving, resolving or figuring out solutions while letting go of the result.  Contentment is now, not when things get better, not when we have all we think we need, it is now, in this moment.  It allows us to love all of life, opening our hearts and clearing it out of judgment as to what we consider “good” or “bad”.  Contentment allows our hearts to be at ease and turns our ignorance into knowledge.

Community Education Teen Yoga has been Delayed

Greetings yoga enthusiasts,

wide forward bend

The Teen Yoga Class I was offering through the Rocky Point Community Education has been delayed until the Spring Session.  If  your teen was interested in attending,  please contact me.  If I have enough interest, I will hold a four class session at my studio Thursdays, (11/20, 12/4, 12/11 & 12/18) at 5pm.  We would need a minimum of six students. Enjoy the leaves…

Shanti, Om

“Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. For we are the ones we have been waiting for!”

Greetings dearest yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you well and allowing yourself time to transition into this fall season that is upon us.  Try to let go of your struggles today.  Our lives truly are a sacred expression of the love we hold  within.  The moment of sacredness is always now and is always a choice we make.  Our sadhanda (practice) teaches us that in the present moment, the abundance of the universe is available to us and we are exactly where we should be.  The more we practice bringing ourselves back to the present moment, the more we can live in that sacred space that is full of compassion, wholeness and healing.  Just as the journey from the head to the heart is only one breath away, the journey from the unreal to the real is within our reach.  Stop waiting for yourself to be more, do more or have more resources available to you to live from your heart’s desire.  You are the one you have been waiting for.  You are already whole, look inside to your inner light to guide you towards your soul’s purpose focusing on completing even the most mundane of tasks as sacred celebrations.  Just as your awareness in your yoga postures should spread to every part of your body, each part equally important, allow your awareness to spread to every task, every breath, every word you speak to rest on the sacredness that is within and around you.

Greetings dear yoga students,

-

This beautiful place of refuge, meditation, prayer and, of course, homemade bread, will be closing as the brothers are no longer able to maintain the property.  The full moon labyrinth walk is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and I do not want to miss this last opportunity.   With the full moon on the rise,  it is the perfect time to walk the labyrinth.  Below is a link for more information about tonight’s event and the website which can offer you a history on labyrinths, as well as the Friary itself.    If you were planning on coming to yoga class tonight, why not join me in this beautiful practice at the Friary 7 to 9pm.

Yoga this Week – November 2, 2014

Be Self-controlled!
Give!
Be Compassionate!
Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
wide forward bend
This is the true aim of yoga, this is the goal.  To learn to control the mind when it leans towards selfishness, egoism, fear and negativity.  The ultimate aim of all our yoga practices are to bring our focus inward so we realize all the peace we seek comes from our true divine nature.  A yogi feels the lack of noting, therefore, there is no need for hoarding, competition or greed.  The yogi knows all comes from and all will return to the divine source; that in our natural state we are all one.
-
Be Self-Controlled by following an ethical path. Give by coming from a place of abundance.  Be Compassionate so others can gain strength from your strong spirit.
This is the aim of yoga, these are the true goals.

Rest yoga yin yang

In this special event,  restorative yoga, reiki energy healing and acupuncture are integrated to create an  indulgent experience designed to restore your balance, wellbeing and facilitate  a deep sense of calm in mind, body and spirit.

If you have never experienced acupuncture before, this would be a  wonderful, gentle introduction.  The  acupuncture points were specifically  chosen for  their universal healing properties including supporting the immune system, balancing energy  and creating a overall sense of relief.

Restorative yoga postures are supported by blankets, pillows, straps and bolsters to relieve tension, stress and open energy in the body.

Reiki Healing is a non-invasive channeling of universal healing energy with the intention of loving kindness  sent to the receiver.  The scent of essential oils allow your body and mind to relax even deeper by facilitating a calming effect.

The goal is not to tie ourselves in knots …

we’re already tied in knots. 
The aim is to untie the knots in our hearts. 
The aim is to unite with the ultimate, loving, and peaceful power in the universe.”

- Max Strom

Yoga helps us to “untie the knots” not only in our overworked, overstressed bodies but also in the parts of our hearts that we seemed to have closed.  Focus your attention on this “ultimate, loving and  peaceful power in the universe” and let it calm, soothe and give you the courage and strength to untie, unwind and open up the flood gates of your hearts.  When the heart chakra is open and free, we have the ability to love and be loved, unconditionally,  and there is absolutely no greater force than that in this world or beyond.
