Yoga this Week – September 22, 2013 – Thurs Nite Class 6pm this week only

“Strength does not come from physical capacity.  It comes from an indomitable will.”  
―     Mahatma Gandhi

Greetings Dear Yoga Students,

Welcome to Fall!!

We had such a wonderful time yesterday gliding across the Harbor to our sweet little island nestled in between Setauket Harbor and the Long Island Sound.  The air was warm, the sun was playing peek a boo and hearts were connected.  Taking our yoga out into nature is so invigorating and transformative.  We are connected, like the Global Mala that took place yesterday connecting yoga communities all over the world, to nature in all its forms.  We learned an important lesson during our paddle as well;  That nature is not to be taken for granted in any capacity.  The wind and waves were kicking up on our way back and we had to use our Kali Power to get us home.  It was exhilarating, at times difficult,  but worth every effort.  Our journey across the water reminded me that sometimes the way is easy and we can glide carefree through the waters of our life, however, it is in the times when we must paddle into the wind, against the flow, or into great resistance that we find the true sense of power that lies within us at all times.    Special thanks to Debbi and Bob, for keeping our kayaking crew safe and accounted for.  Jai, Jai, Jai!!  Victory!

You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.”

Setauket Harbor Here We Come!!  We are blessed to have received a wonderful weather report for tomorrow morning’s adventure.  Our Yoga Paddle (which is kayaking, canoeing or rowing, NOT STAND UP paddle boarding, there has been some confusion on that minor detail) happens to fall on two very auspicious events.  It is the Autumnal Equinox (Day and Night are equal in length and the first day of Fall) and the Global Mala for Peace (which honors the International Day of Peace by creating a Yoga Mala (chain) around the world in which yoga communities across the globe will be practicing sun salutations to send out the energy of peace to all beings everywhere.  There is going to be great energy surrounding our event and I am so excited to be able to lead you through a practice knowing we are joining in with yoga communities everywhere.
