yoga is like music

Tonight as surya colors the sky and it sinks beyond our vision, so will we honor the passing of one of the great gurus of yoga and the brilliance of his wisdom.

“The right method of doing asanas brings lightness and an exhilarating feeling in the body as well as in the mind and a feeling of oneness of body, mind and soul.” – BKS Iyengar

“It is the wilderness in
the mind, the desert wastes in the heart through which one wanders lost and a stranger. When one is a
stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too. If one is out of touch with oneself, then one
cannot touch others.” 
 Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea

Namaste dear yoga students,

What a wonderful discussion ensued around the Gift from the Sea at our book discussion at Cedar Beach Friday night.    It is amazing how yogic wisdom is weaved throughout this precious body of work.  The central themes rotating around the need for solitude and creative pursuits in order to find your inner self as well as the importance in accepting and embracing changes in relationships and within ourselves.  If you haven’t gotten a chance to read it, I would highly recommend it.  As someone said in our discussion; as soon as you open the book and begin reading, it creates a calm flow of energy inside of you, both within the imagery of the beach and the beautiful, poetic rhythm of her words.  Hoping to do another book discussion in the future.  Thank you to all who attended for the conversation, insights, laughter and connection.  Oh and special thanks to the Gift from the Sea!

Greetings dear yoga students,

If you want to know how you got to where you are today, look at your past actions.  If you want to know what your future will be like, look at your present actions.  Its that simple.  We create our future everyday  with what we do in the present.  Tapas, the Niyama described as disciplined action, helps us create the future we long for.  Take a look at your present state of mind, your present schedule and what it is comprised of and ask yourself if it is aiding you in creating the life you desire.  Tapas helps us to create the fertile ground for healthy growth to occur.  Tapas is getting on your yoga mat, getting to bed early, creating space in your life because the disciplines help to create an ultimate calm state of mine.   Tapas enlightens our days with determination and resolve to stay on this path we have chosen, courageously forging our way through this beautiful journey called life with joy.

The Three Pillars of Yoga

Tapas: Discipline

Svadhayaya:  Study of the self and of  Spiritual Texts

Ishvara Pranidhana:  Devotion and Surrender to the Divine

Greetings dear yoga students,

What a gift to be able to retreat from our worldly life and dive in to yoga’s spiritual teachings.  Over the next few weeks, I hope to be able to shed some light on each of the three pillars of yoga stated above.   These three pillars are part of yoga’s ethical practices known as Niyamas and are the second limb of the Eight Limb Path.  Niyamas are personal observances and give us the tools to lead a happy, joyful , well-balanced life.  These three observances in particular are highlighted in the Yoga Sutras as Kriya Yoga.  The Sanskrit word, Kriya, means  to take action;  so Kriya Yoga is the yoga of action.  By concentrating on these principles and discovering where you  may need to take action in your life (making a plan)  the ancient masters tell us we will  discover a more fulfilling, joyful life  and also create the fertile ground for our life’s purpose and deepest desires to become manifest.
