Tonight’s Equinox Gathering is Full to Capacity!

Hari Om dear yoga students,

Please be advised:   If you have not contacted me and I have not confirmed your spot for tonight’s gathering, it is now full.

Due to social distancing logistics, the attendance is limited.  If it were not for this, I would love to have you all!!!

For those of you that have signed up, try to carpool when possible and arrive at the parking lot before 645pm.  The lot will be locked promptly at that time.  Please arrive with a Mask and maintain your distance as we set up!  Dress Warm.

This is a fundraiser for Friend’s kitchen located at Trinity Lutheran Church in Rocky Point that feeds the hungry in our area.  The suggested donation is $15 cash.  If you can’t attend and would like to contribute, please feel free to venmo Amy-Perri or send a check.

Many Blessings for the upcoming Equinox.  The winds of change are upon us.

Namaste
Amy

Holding the Balance-Ode to the Autumn Equinox

 Our lives hold grief and balm in equal measure, light, darkness are two ends of the same stick.  How do we hold all this life, all these dualities of sadness and joy, receiving and letting go, failures and successes, dreams and regrets, doing and not doing? The Tao Te Ching tells us that when we become empty we receive all that we have been grasping for.  This emptying and filling is as natural as the turn of the seasons.  To learn to let go with the grace of a tree in fall, to go within to shine the light where it has remained dark.  To share our burdens and our joys together as we walk this life full of transitions.  As we empty and prepare for what is to come,  planting seeds of intention; we find gratitude as we give rise to what is germinating deep inside; we honor the balance of light and dark.

“It is the wilderness in
the mind, the desert wastes in the heart through which one wanders lost and a stranger. When one is a
stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too. If one is out of touch with oneself, then one
cannot touch others.” 
 Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea

Greetings Dearest Friends,

The need for solitude and time to pursue creative endeavors is so very important to the journey inward, to discover, befriend and cultivate your relationship to yourself.  This is also key  in the practice of  accepting and embracing changes in relationships, in life’s circumstances and in the world at large.  When we are intimate with our inner being, we can find the grounding, gratitude and joy within that we crave to find healing and wholeness which enables us to accept instead of resist life’s circumstances with grace.  So this Labor Day, give yourself some time and space to get in touch with you.  Be  with yourself without placing any demands or lofty outcomes.  Let go of having to accomplish and just allow your inner child to play, relax and just be.

Yoga this Week – August 30, 2020

“Yoga is a balancing factor, a substratum across all of your life, so you do not get shifted in one direction or another. It gives you freshness, gives you light, recharges your batteries. You become a stable person. You realize what balance is, what sukha is, what contentment is, what joy is.”
~ Birjoo Mehta

Hoping to see you all in class this week so together we can recharge, re-balance and stabilize to experience yoga’s true gifts;  sukha (sweetness), contentment and joy!!!

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”
Pema Chodren

Blessings and love to all those that are suffering today.  Suffering comes in many forms.  Inner and outer darkness, circumstances beyond our control and unexpected turn of events can all lead to suffering.  May our hearts turn for a moment to all those that are in the debts of suffering to recognize we are bound together by our humanity and offer our deepest compassion.

Yoga this Week – August 16, 2020

“The lesson which life constantly repeats is to ‘look under your feet.’
You are always nearer to the divine and the true sources of your power than you think.
The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive.
The great opportunity is where you are.
Do not despise your own place and hour.
Every place is under the stars.
Every place is the center of the world.”
― John Burroughs, Studies in Nature and Literature

Dear Yoga Students,

For reasons beyond our human understanding, we are here in this time and this hour.  We were meant to be here right now. Where you are is always where your true source of power is and where your greatest opportunities to learn and grow reside.  Yoga reminds us that all of our experiences, the difficult and the wonderful,  are worthwhile to explore.  Each moment is an opportunity to stop, connect and realize every place you are is the center of the world.
