Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

Hari Om Dear Yoga Students,
Hope this email finds you well grounded and centered in your life. Thanks so much to all of you who attended the Restorataive Yoga and Acupunture class, it was an amazing thing for me to witness you all melting away your stress!! The next session (January) already has five on the list so if you are interested let me know.
Look around you this morning. Take in the sights and smells of Fall. Breathe in that energy and allow your life to be enough. Call to mind all you have been given. All the blessing and hardships; even trials and tribulations are gifts in disguise. The obstacles in our path allow us to move deeper into our human experience by humbling us enough to reach out to others for help. In times when we are in the depth of hardship or confusion, when the world seems darkest, the miracle of letting go occurs. Dark times can have the ability to move us away from the material into the spiritual; drawing us nearer to the divine source that carries us through the days when we simply cannot walk on our own. Experiencing the light within the dark (yin and yang) we come to the realization that Santosha becomes possible no matter what circumstances surround us right now.
Santosha, or the practice of contentment, is the ability to feel satisfied within the container of one’s immediate experience. ~~Donna Farhi
Be open, be receptive, be present for yourself and those around you today and through this holiday of thankgiving. Be of service in anyway you can, look beyond your differences as you interact with your family and friends and honor each person for who they are today; knowing that their struggles are no easier than your own. Don’t forget to honor yourself and your place in this life! You were meant to be here at this time and hour so rejoice, be happy and most of all be grateful for all you have that truly matters!!
When at peace and content with oneself and others (Santosha), supreme joy is celebrated. (Nischala Joy Devi)
