Yoga this Week – October 17, 2016

Be Virtuous, Be Giving, Be Positive and allow your actions to come from a place of Loving Kindness and all you may be looking for will be found.  Let everything else go; desires, judgments,  conflicts, friction, ideas.  Let it all go and remain calm and centered in all you do, focusing on understanding, connection and mutual respect.

Yoga this Week – November 17, 2013

**The road is all paved and ready so classes can   be held in our cozy, warm  yoga room; yay!***

“Without intention, all these postures, these breathing practices, meditations, and the like can become little more than ineffectual gestures. When animated by intention, however, the simplest movement, the briefest meditation, and the contents of one breath cycle are made potent.”

                                                                      Donna Farhi


Good Morning Dearest Yoga Students,

It feels wonderful to be wide awake on this glorious November morning.    Setting an intention can be extremely powerful, not only for your yoga practice but for your day, your week or your life.  With an intention set, our mind seems to calm down and we can rest in the fact that we know we are doing the right thing; that we are on course.

Whatever you are doing today, after reading this, stop for a moment or two and see if an intention for this day comes up for you.  It could be an intention to remain calm if difficulties are awaiting you.  It could be an intention to release judgement or cultivate joy inside yourself.  Whatever you wish for yourself, try setting an intention to cultivate that quality inside.  If you want to be happier, intend to be happy.  If you want more friends, intend to be friendly.  If you want more serenity, intend to act serene.  It may sound to simplistic, but it actually is.  With the full moon energy tonight,  you may want to go a step further and write your intention down to make it more concrete, the written word has much power.  As you move into your next task for the day after you read this whether you are going to do laundry, rake leaves, make breakfast for your family;  do it with an intention in your mind and notice what arises.  Live your life by design….try repeating the following mantra to keep you on your way:

“I am flowing down the river of my life, steering myself in the right direction”

Yoga this Week – May 25, 2013

Sagittarius _lunar_eclipse

The Phoenix rises from the ashes of the past.  You, too, can recreate yourself and make a fresh start.  You can experience a Brilliant Breakthrough.  That is this Full Moon’s message.”

Hatha Yoga 

        Ha – Sun           Tha – Moon       Yoga – to connect

Hatha Yoga is to connect and balance the elements of the sun and moon that lies within us.   In the early morning hours there was a full moon lunar eclipse.  This astrological event is both mysterious and powerful.  The energy of the full moon reminds us that we are complete, whole and abundant exactly as we are.  As the full moon reflects the brillance of the sun, our energetic, powerful “Ha”, sun element shines through and lights up our receptivity “tha” moon energy.  The sun and moon are deeply connected as is illustrated as the earth moves in front of the sun and changes the color of the white moon to a dark red filtering a small amount of sunlight on its surface.  This ha and tha energy within us are deeply connected as well.

The full moon reminds us that all that has occured within our lives in the last month has led up to this moment.  It is a time to sit back, watch, allow and let it all be.  There are times for action in our lives and a time to let go.  Within our asana practice there are times of expending great effort to release energy, wake up our bodies and quiet our minds.  There are also times when we hold the pose, release in relaxation, sit still, let go and trust the process.  This ebb and flow, giving and receiving creates the balance we so long for in our lives.  We simply cannot hold on to pleasure  or force pain to go away, try as we might, we must accept as best we can the process.  Just as the moon cannot possibly hold on to its fullness or emptiness, we must let go and allow our lives to unfold;  trusing the phases of waining, waxing and fullness to bring us to wholeness again.
