*Gratitude Class Wednesday Eve*
May all hearts be at ease. May our contentment promote the energies to alleviate suffering and turn ignorance into knowledge. May the cultivation of santosha guide us to courageous action, deeper community and greater love of all sentient beings.
Greetings Dearest Yoga Students,
Santosha is one of the Niyamas outlined in the eight limbs of yoga. Niyamas are ethical practices that cultivate self awareness which creates inner peace. Santosha means contentment. To be content with whatever is. It is a way to think about life’s conundrums as a series of predicaments that beg for our attention, creativity, compassion and openness. Like waves on the ocean these situations continue to arise, resolve and arise once more. By Shifting our perspective from aversion to exploration we transform our obstacles into stepping stones on which we grow. Contentment is now, not when things get better, not when we have all we think we need, it is now, in this moment. It allows us to love all of life, opening our hearts and clearing it out of judgment as to what we consider “good” or “bad”. Contentment allows our hearts to be at ease and guides us to courageous action!
Wednesday Evening Class will be a special Gratitude Thanksgiving Eve Class. Please have a candle and lighter handy for a special candle meditation and get ready to count all your blessings!
Please make sure to check your email or website prior to heading out for the 1pm Wednesday Yoga Walk at Heritage Park. Weather, life, etc, may get in our way. I am planning on walking this week but will post Wednesday by noon to confirm or cancel.
