Yoga this Week – January 6, 2019

 

Happy New Year dear Yoga Students,

We had a wonderful time at the Kirtan last Friday night and I was amazed how free and happy I felt the next day!  The energy has stayed with me all weekend.  I was particularly taken with the moment we chanted to “our struggles” during Hari Om Tat Sat which translates as we bow to the truth of all that is sacred.  Our struggles are part of our sacred path.  Just like moving into the darkness from Autumn Equinox to Winter Solstice, it is part of the sacred cycle of our lives to move in and out and forward and back again.  Hopefully we learn to grow,  to leave behind what doesn’t serve us, take with us the lessons and honor the journey.  Here we are, beautiful yogi’s, at the start of a brand new year.  May you all and all beings find peace within your darkness and may we all honor the ever increasing light together as we travel this life together.

Yoga this Week – October 28, 2018

We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or other people’s models, learn to be ourselves,
and allow our natural channel to open.”
Shaki Gawain

Like so many yoga practices, svadhyaya is the study of the self.  Yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation are all ways to peel off the layers of our false selves and dive in to our authenticity.   To guide us in this process, we can turn again and again to those spiritual teachers that inspire us.  They are there in books, in music, in our dreams, in nature or maybe sitting right across from us at work, home or in our community.  The more open and compassionate to our own “particular genius” that we can become, the more our “natural channels” to the divine open and our dharma (life’s purpose) is revealed.

Yoga this Week – February 25, 2018

Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,

In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Sutra 1:2 gives us the true meaning of yoga practice:  To still the every moving fluctuations of the mind.  The “Chitta” is like the lens we see the world through.     Our Chitta is colored, or clouded, by the vritti’s;  the things we have been taught, the society we live in, the family we grew up with and the experiences that have made an impression on us as we grow.  These perceptions can keep our mind in constant fluctuation (vritti) and  block our awareness of our higher consciousness (Buddhi) or ability to discern, intuit and understand deeper meanings in our lives.

Yoga – to Unite    Chitta – Consciousness     Vritti – Fluctuations    Nirodhah – Quieting of

The practice of yoga is to clear  our lenses (Chitta’s)  so that we see things as they really are, clear of personal attachment to outcomes, beliefs and misconceptions.  This is the goal of yoga. this is why we practice.  To clear our bodies and minds of habitual patterns so we can open up to what is truly important and true in our lives.  So we can open up to the wisdom of our higher self that is always looking out for our good and the good of all.

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.
