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.

Harvest Moon Beach Yoga Fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey

Harvest Moon Beach Yoga Fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

Wednesday, September 6th at 745pm

Broadway Beach Rocky Point

Come join us to do yoga on the beach under the full Harvest Moon. We will have live drumming during class and conclude with a drum circle and meditation. Feel free to bring drums and/or any percussion instrument you like. The full moon in September, just before the Fall Equinox, holds powerful energy, luminous colors and very bright light. Its name is the Harvest moon because it enabled farmers to pick their abundant crop late into the night. It is both a time of reflection and gratitude for what the summer has brought to us; both in material wealth and spiritual lessons.

My good friend, Russ Green,  directed my attention to this amazing organization comprised mainly of military veterans who work with EMS and other emergency response teams in the trenches of disaster areas. All proceeds from the class are going to Team Rubicon.    These are experienced service people that are literally in the trenches assisting and providing aid to the relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey. Lets take our Yoga off our mats and direct our intentions to raising much needed relief to those in need. We are one world!! If you cannot make it to the class you can either send (or give) your donation to me or donate directly at their website at www.teamrubiconusa.org

Lokha Samasta Sukino Bhavantu:  May all beings be happy, peaceful and free and may OUR THOUGHTS, WORDS AND ACTIONS CONTRIBUTE to the well being and freedom for all!!  Karma Yoga is the Yoga of Service!

Hope to celebrate this Harvest moon with you!! Join us. Contact me with any questions. 6318390644. You must arrive on time to get a parking pass to park in the Broadway beach parking lot. $15 per person, all proceeds to go to the Relief Efforts for Hurricane Harvey.

Contact me if you have any questions.  6318390644 or yogawithamy@optonline.net

 Greetings dear yoga students,

Yoga puts us in touch with that part of ourselves that remembers what we have forgotten;  that we are whole, we are strong, that we can endure and we can meet our lives with grace, steadfastness, integrity and joy.  Once we touch this inner realm, we will never be the same again!

Yoga this Week – June 12, 2017

“Your life is a sacred journey.  It is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way….And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love”  .  

                                                                   ~~Caroline Adams

Returning home from an adventurous weekend, I am reminded of the great power in being still, being challenged, being opened and being free.  Stepping out of our comfort zone, whether it is to sit on a meditation cushion, step on to our yoga mats, climb a mountain or open ourselves up to another, helps to expand our “vision of what is possible” in our lives.  Life itself is the greatest journey we will ever take.  It is an adventure into the unknown forest of emotions, into the complexity of our minds, the amazing resilience of our bodies, the flowing energy of relationships and most importantly, an adventure into that deep inner wellspring of compassion and love  from which all magnificent tales of triumph are born.

Yoga this Week – January 15, 2017

**No Tuesday Morning Class this Week**

thoughts

We can either let our thoughts pull us in different directions like wind blows a leaf at will or we can stop and be the still point like a tree, standing firm as the turbulence moves around and through us.  We cannot stop the mind, just like we can’t control people, places or things around us, but we can choose to be the calm force amidst the changing winds.  Meditation teaches us to “be still and know”, becoming still allows us to see our thoughts with clarity so when we leave our practice we have a better sense of who we are and what is really important to us. These truths lie beneath habitual thought patterns, stilling your body, focusing on your breath is like going underneath the water to discover that an entire new world exists beneath the surface..  A world that lives within you. A world that is calm, focused and knows exactly how to be in this sometimes confusing environment of the mind.

Good Morning Dear Yoga Students,

Abundance is  always within in us.  Be still for a moment and just listen; see if you can tune in and feel all of that energy. Abundance is not necessarily what we have or what we achieve but a feeling of deep satisfaction and meaning in the everyday moments.  Notice when you measure your “abundance” from your ego self; based on what others are doing, what you have or what you do. True, lasting abundance is actually what is coming from you, not what is coming TO you.  Your dharma, or life’s purpose is how you use  your unique talents to serve others with an effortless passion, generosity and joy.  Abundance is not something we acquire.  It is something we tune into.  When you tap into this inner abundance you will know it, and others will know it because it will naturally become a flowing stream pouring into everything you  touch.
