Yoga this Week – May 20,2018

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.
                                                          Doug Coupland

Greetings dear yoga students,

I have been so enamored by all the birds are visiting my feeder this year.  So many varieties, sizes, shapes and colors fill my vision with vibrancy and joy.  I often think about the way they live.  So simply in tune with each other and nature.  They are a constant reminder,  as I sit at my computer  watching them swoop and land and soar,   not to take life so seriously. Much like my time on my yoga mat, observing them reminds me to trust, let go and fly into the moments of my life with purpose, freedom and joy. Birds are truly a miracle to behold, they prove to us that there is a finer state of being we can strive to attain and that state of being is yoga.

On Children

Kahlil Gibran

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let our bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

 Happy Mother’s Day Dearest Yoga Students,

Whether you are a mother, grandmother, son or daughter – we all have something wonderful to celebrate today; unconditional love.  Think about that term for a minute.  The Wikipedia definition is:  Unconditional Love   is a term that means to love someone regardless of one’s actions or beliefs.  Unconditional love separates the individual from her or his behaviors. The individual is loved unconditionally as a “perfect” child of the Higher Power.

Revel in what it feels like to be loved without conditions, without judgement with pure loving kindness for who you are.   Focus on the gratitude you have for all the mothers in your life past and present;  your birth mother, a friend, a sister, a diety, a mentor …and then recycle all the love you have been given as an offering to the universe.  Meditate on the amazing creation of life and the cycles that continue on and on and on.  Sa Ta Na Ma…Life, Death, Rebirth and Infinity. 
“A Mother’s Love need not be Deserved”

Yoga this Week – May 7, 2018

Greetings dearest yoga students,

The above quote states exactly the lesson I learned on my adventure to the beautiful and remote mountains of Costa Rica; Trust, Relax….Repeat!    As i was voyaging down the mighty Colorado River in nothing more than a tire tube, I was given a lesson on how to relax and let go.  You see there were periods of calm, pooling water where I could just relax and enjoy the scenery but these serene moments were mixed with   wild, rough,whitewater rapids that were exciting, scary and exhilarating.   However, the moment that a rapid was approaching and I felt my body tense and my chest start pumping in fear, a  gentle but firm hand came and held the back of my life vest.  Unbeknownst to me, guides were swimming behind me steering and supporting me through the roaring  rapids.  As soon as I began to trust that invisible hand, I completely relaxed and enjoyed the ride.  I am trying to infuse this lesson moment by moment as I walk through my life.  When I feel my body tense and my chest start pumping in fear, I remember there is always a gentle but firm hand guiding me and supporting me even if I cannot see it, I can tune and and FEEL it; as I learn to trust, I relax and when I relax, I am able to give that beautiful serenity to those around me.  Trust, relax…repeat!!

Yoga this Week – April 22, 2018

Greetings and Happy Earth Day!

What  a beautiful day to honor Mother Earth.   Spring has finally sprung!  All we need to do is look around to know that where we walk is truly sacred.   As Thich Nhat Hanh so eloquently put it “Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet”.   Offer gratitude to our amazing planet by nurturing it, honoring it and enjoying it!  Get your hands in the sweet dirt, walk barefoot on the morning grass, lay down in mid-day and stare up at the sky and ponder how wonderful this world is.  Jai Jagadambe!

Yoga this Week – April 15, 2018

*Scroll down to see upcoming events and workshops*

Yoga is invigoration in relaxation. Freedom in routine.

Confidence through self control.

Energy within and energy without.

Ymber Delecto

At first glance, the above quote may seem like it is highlighting opposing forces but in reality it is the opposite that manifests the desired result.  As we open up to new beginnings with the April New Moon and a new season upon us, we look to Ganesha, the elephant deity that guides us through our obstacles and honors all the twists and turns of life.  Ganesha blesses our new endeavors and intentions to move forward.  This complicated but jolly elephant helps us to see the way past or through our perceived obstacles to find our truest path.  Om Gum Ganapatye Om Namaha, Jai Ganesha!!
