Yoga this Week – February 19, 2018

Dear Yoga Students,

 

Our first Sutra Study group was a wonderful experience.  The next group will meet on Thursday night,  March 15th at 7pm.  Please feel free to join us.  You do not have to attend all sessions to benefit from the Yoga Sutra’s deep teachings. Let me know if you would like your email added to the Sutra Study Group email list for upcoming readings and practices throughout the month.

It is amazing to see our yoga community begin to grown in different and exciting ways!  Yoga is not all about the postures, it really about our state of mind as we move through our practice and our lives.  Namaste and a deep bow to you all.

Hoping this email finds you experiencing some form of serenity in these cold dog-days of winter.  If you are not particularly fond of the winter season,  try to find something positive to focus on.  This weather affords us the opportunity to either curl up with a good book, begin that long awaiting project or spend some time with that treasured loved one.  Or better yet, get out; bundle up with style, wearing colorful scarves, big hats and your favorite boots.  Whatever the weather make life a celebration whatever you choose to do.  You were given this day and this day is all we have for now, so receive it as graciously as you would a  gift and shine your gratitude outward like the warm rays of the sun,
you may be surprised at the inner heat you create!

Yoga this Week – January 28, 2018

“Life is a Learning Curve” is the quote my 19 year old snowboarding, drumming, stay-up-all-niter college freshman decided to get tattooed on his inner forearm next to the autism puzzle piece in honor of his older brothers journey navigating life on the spectrum.

Image may contain: one or more people and closeup

These days we have a habit of saying that quote often when we come up against something new, hard, difficult, exciting or confusing. Life IS a learning curve. Do we ever stop learning? Transitions, pain, sorrow, winning, defeat, even success all have a learning curve at their core and what make up a growing life.  After all, wouldn’t the drive just be a tedious ride if all the roads were straight? It really are those curves that drive us forward, empowering and creating empathy, compassion and resilience as we tackle each one.   Like waves on the ocean the learning will keep rolling in. Some of the waves will be easy,  rolling gently and slowly onto the shore and some will crash us right from behind and slam us down on our backs. It’s all a learning, a moving forward, through and back and forth again.   Whenever you hear that inner critic or that debilitating fear rise up” that tells you “you can’t handle this” try and repeat the mantra “Life is a Learning Curve” ; tattoo it on your arm if you need to and remind yourself you are not supposed to have all the answers and that learning is gives your life meaning your your heart a chance soar.

Greetings dear Yoga Students,

We are all moving forward,whether we fly, run, walk or crawl.  We can resist the pull of the future or we can choose to join in the dance.  Our yoga practice is a guide for skillful living.  It is a guide designed to free from the trappings of the mind.    We are moving, we are changing, things will never be this way again.To resist is only to deny the truth of our very existence.  Try to love the journey, the challenges, empty spaces and busy days.  Keep your dreams in sight and whatever you do, keep moving forward!!!

I’m Teaching Yoga for Kids!!!

After-school Yoga for Kids at the Joseph A Edgar Old Gym

Led by Amy Perri, eRYT500

You Do Not Have to Be a Rocky Point Resident to Sign up.

Yoga is beneficial for everybody.  It is a non-competitive way for kids to increase strength and flexibility, encouraging self expression and creativity which boosts self-esteem and confidence.  Yoga practice is known for increasing concentration and attention span by promoting inner calm and relaxation.  Yoga can be practiced by kids of all abilities and fosters a sense of non-judgmental community.   But the most important aspect for kids is that it can be so much fun!!!
