Yoga this Week – November 17, 2013

**The road is all paved and ready so classes can   be held in our cozy, warm  yoga room; yay!***

“Without intention, all these postures, these breathing practices, meditations, and the like can become little more than ineffectual gestures. When animated by intention, however, the simplest movement, the briefest meditation, and the contents of one breath cycle are made potent.”

Good Morning Dearest Yoga Students,

It feels wonderful to be wide awake on this glorious November morning.    Setting an intention can be extremely powerful, not only for your yoga practice but for your day, your week or your life.  With an intention set, our mind seems to calm down and we can rest in the fact that we know we are doing the right thing; that we are on course.

Whatever you are doing today, after reading this, stop for a moment or two and see if an intention for this day comes up for you.  It could be an intention to remain calm if difficulties are awaiting you.  It could be an intention to release judgement or cultivate joy inside yourself.  Whatever you wish for yourself, try setting an intention to cultivate that quality inside.  If you want to be happier, intend to be happy.  If you want more friends, intend to be friendly.  If you want more serenity, intend to act serene.  It may sound to simplistic, but it actually is.  With the full moon energy tonight,  you may want to go a step further and write your intention down to make it more concrete, the written word has much power.  As you move into your next task for the day after you read this whether you are going to do laundry, rake leaves, make breakfast for your family;  do it with an intention in your mind and notice what arises.  Live your life by design….try repeating the following mantra to keep you on your way:

“I am flowing down the river of my life, steering myself in the right direction”

  1. Amy ; I’m signed up for the Jewel in the Lotus event + would like to do the yoga jam. Unfortunately 12/07 is the LIYA holiday workshop / luncheon starting at 10:00. I’ve got a message in to them on the schedule of the day to see what I’d miss going in an hour or so late. Will let you know once I get more info. Bob
