Yoga this Week – July 7, 2013

Yoga this Week - February 25, 2012

 

When you do yoga postures,
surrender to the moment,
be in the moment,
don`t worry about weather
you can touch your
toes or not,
just experience the process.

Then try to carry this attitude
into the rest of your day,
away from tension,
guilt and anxiety.

Experience is the door
to the here and now.

                    Amrit Kala

 Hari Om dearest yoga students, 

Non-attachment is one of the most difficult aspects of our practice to attain.  We attach ourselves to an ideal of what our life should look like, what our yoga practice should feel like, what our world should be like and then only create suffering when it does not measure up.  To truly be in the process,present to the here and now is a gift.   When we walk through that doorway, we feel the guilt, shame and anxiety, which have become like guests who have overstayed their welcome, slip away.  We all deserve to be free, we all deserve to experience joy and true joy and freedom is only found in one place:  the here and now…

If you plan on joining in for Beach Yoga, we will meet at my house and carpool down to Hallock Landing Beach  – Check Email or FB Page by 5pm to see if class will be on the beach or in our yoga room.  If you decide to drive down on your own, please be mindful of the “No Parking” Signs.  Contact me if you have any questions.  I hope to continue this beautiful tradition of taking our yoga outdoors and I appreciate your patience as we work out the details.  I promise you, it is worth it!!!

Yoga this Week – June 30, 2013

It is time. If you are to walk the path of heart, then it is time…”

If not now, when? If not me, who? To walk the path of the heart is a great honor. Every human has the choice to walk this path, but very few will decide to make it. Why? Well, because you can’t act and behave like everyone else behaves. You must be the person who will learn to look within. You must be the person who will be fully accountable for yourself. You must be the person who prays and meditates. You must be the person who will sacrifice. You must decide to be a Peaceful Warrior

–Nippawanock, ARAPAHOE

Greetings to all my Peaceful Warriors,

Hoping you all have enjoyed this wonderful summer weekend!  We will try for Sunset Yoga Classes on the beach – weather and tide permitting.   If you plan on joining in for Beach Yoga, we will meet at my house and carpool down to Hallock Landing Beach as I have a sticker to park in the lot – Check Email or FB Page by 5pm to see if class will be on the beach or in our yoga room.  If you decide to drive down on your own, please be mindful of the “No Parking” Signs.  Contact me if you have any questions.  I hope to continue this beautiful tradition of taking our yoga outdoors and I appreciate your patience as we work out the details.  I promise you, it is worth it!!!

Our freedom affords us a myriad of opportunities in our lives.   One of the most important ones is the opportunity to pursue any spiritual path we desire to explore in our own individual way. I express much gratitude to all of you for enabling me to bring yoga into your lives.  The freedom to teach yoga and bring the physical and spiritual disciplines to my students is a privilege that propels my spiritual path farther and wider than you will ever know.  Take a moment to say a prayer of gratitude to all those that fight for freedom in small and large ways and enjoy your life as it is today.

Yoga this Week – June 9, 2013 – No Thursday Night this Week

“I’ve come to believe that the highest form of prayer is to pray and yet ask for nothing.  To resonate with awareness, acceptance, and gratitude is surely to pray.  To breathe and accept gratefully the air that surrounds me into my body…..to be conscious of this, as we breath,
turns the physical practice into a devotional one”
                                            Sting

Dearest Yoga Students,

Hoping this moment finds you  consciously breathing and accepting gratefully all that surrounds you.   Whether you accept your present circumstances graciously or with a heavy heart, acceptance is the key that unlocks the door to serenity.  It is my intention that as you dive deeper and deeper into your yoga practice,  you too begin to find the spiritual foundation that yoga is built on.  Allow the feelings  of gratitude and loving kindness  that arise during your practice to become your “prayer” of devotion to  that universal energy that works through all things including you.

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.
