Yoga this Week – May 2, 2015 – No Monday Night Class

“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength, but through persistence”
                                   ~Buddha

Hoping this message finds you enjoying the amazing signs of spring that are popping up all around us. Think about the perseverance and patience that nature is gifted with.  The small bulbs that wait silently underground, the perennials that lay dormant waiting for the signals and signs that it is time to begin their work of opening, pushing, growing up out of the dark earth into the light.  Nature does not give up, it finds a way to regenerate.  The natural world knows what needs to be done and does not question its role in its lifetime. This truth fills me with the hope that we too can rise above our darkness and shine in all our glory. 

The Yoga Sutras tell us is it the obstacles that lead us into a deeper understanding of ourselves. Directly confronting our difficulties with clarity, compassion and persistence creates freedom.  Freedom in knowing you are never really trapped in any situation.  For today, see if you can change your perspective to any “rocks” that are in your stream.  Stay focused, do the next right thing, however small it may seem, and try and find the lesson, the jewel that is hidden within.  Today, be persistent in your journey towards balance, freedom, peace and serenity in your life.

” The witnessing soul is like the sky. The birds fly in the sky but they don’t leave any footprints….[The] man who is awakened lives in such a way that he leaves no footprints…. He never looks ahead, he never looks back,  he lives in the moment.”

Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition, if we could only realize it.

To stay with that shakiness – to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feeling of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge – that is the path of true awakening.

Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos,

learning not to panic, this is the spiritual path. 

– Pema Chödrön

 

images (49)

This is the spiritual path, this is Yoga!  Sticking with the pose, the feeling, the uncomfortability of the know, the uncomfortability with the unknown, with the shakiness of feeling weak, of feeling strong of feeling vulnerable

and practicing relaxing in the midst of it all.  Learning to be still and respond with the utmost intelligent action from a place of compassion, wisdom and love:  This is the Spiritual Path – This is Yoga!

Greetings dear yoga students,

The feeling of the warm sun on my face, the sound of the cardinals whistling and the pink and blue hyacinths painting splashes of color in my garden fills my whole being with energy and joy!!  Spring has finally sprung and it was a glorious weekend to be alive. Just when we thought winter would never leave, here we are watching the grass turn green again.  Nature offers us such powerful lessons of rejuvenation, stamina and resolve.  Time to let go of the long, dark winter and breathe into the light of what’s ahead!!

Yoga this Week – March 29, 2015

 

 
“Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises?  If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away”
Henry D. Thoreau
images (87)
 Greetings dearest yoga students,
How often do we try to keep pace with our companions?  Pushing forward towards an ideal when we’re not even sure we connect to its truth.  Our society, families, friends all have ideas of how we should live our life.  It is time now to find your own truth.  Listen closely to your heart as you approach a decision.  What truly resonates for you may be quite different from those around you. Do something because you understand why you are doing it deep down in your core and it makes sense for you and those around you.  Give yourself space to feel into the question, check in with your physical, mental and emotional energies, they are the guides to your intuitive nature which always knows what is right.  Take a breath, get yourself in a calm state and have the patience and faith to listen to what your higher self is telling you. Trust yourself enough to be guided from within, not because you feel you need to adhere to some arbitrary code that others have laid out for you.  We live and let live which means we also honor that others have their own path, we niether judge or retaliate; we honor their decision and go our own way to decide for ourselves. 
“You cannot discover new oceans until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore”

Anon 

Most importantly,  don’t be afraid to fail.  It is in taking risks, trying out new ways of being,  that we find ourselves and create the life we were meant to live.  Nothing would get done if we all waited until we did it perfectly.  Encourage yourself with compassion, focus, vision and a little light hearted humor.   It is in the falls we take that we learn how to endure, create and make this world a better place for ourselves and others.
