**The regular Wednesday class is replaced this week with Restorative Yoga and Acupuncture – Still two spots open**
“Mother Ganges teaches us that if we want to attain the sea of our aspiration, we must persevere in our goal and never be discouraged by the inevitable obstacles that come on our path. All impediments are like rocks in the river of life. We should flow around them and never give up. With the Lord’s help, there is always a way.”
Excerpt from “The Journey Home” by Radhanath Swami
Dearest Yoga Students,
One of my favorite teachers, Rolf Gates used to say, “The obstacles in our path, are our path”, and I believe this to be true. Yoga is about relationship and connection. Today explore your relationship to the rocks in the river of your life. How you think about your obstacles and the energy you bring to your actions as you relate to them, has everything to do how you “flow around them”. Today as my husband and I literally got lost in the trails in the woods, we reminded each other (in between glares of confusion) to enjoy the journey of being lost. As the sound of the road became louder and we knew we were almost back, I contemplated the fact that we are never really lost, we are never really off the path and that the detours, obstacles and the “not knowing” are usually the most beautiful parts of our journey. So persevere today and avoid becoming discouraged. With the help of the divine source that is vibrating all around us, there is always a way.
