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.

“My beloved child, break your heart no longer.
Each time you judge yourself, you break your own heart.
You stop feeding on the love which is the wellspring of your vitality.
The time has come.

Your time.  To celebrate.

And to see the goodness that you are.
You my child, are divine. You are pure. You are sublimely free.
You are God in disguise. And you are always perfectly safe.
Do not fight the dark. Just turn on the light.
Let go, And breathe into the goodness that you are.”

Swami Kripalvanandaji

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,

May Peace, Contentment and Joy fill your heart and soul this entire week and beyond!  Thank you sooo much for being part of our wonderful yoga community.  The Winter Solstice Sangha was so  much fun and the connection I see between you all fills me with such happiness.  After all, what truly is the most important thing in our lives?  From my vantage point it is how we touch the lives around us.  Much gratitude to you for touching my heart so deeply and with such fun, dedication and love.

Mantra, Music and Asana: Tuning into Vibration & Intention this Saturday November 12, 1-4pm

Long Island Yoga Association presents their November Workshop: Mantra, Music and Asana: Tuning into Vibration & Intention with Amy Perri, eRYT500 and friends. Discover how the elements of music, mantra and yoga come together in this uplifting, informative workshop. During this auspicious time that is flowing toward the season of gratitude, we will elevate our vibrations in body, mind and spirit to send out the energy of peace, love and non-violence in a world that so desperately needs each one of us to do so. As a yoga community, we will discover the amazing, energy-shifting power of both a gentle, slow-flow asana class and kirtan serenaded by the rhythms of live music. The day will begin with a dharma talk, followed by an asana class and conclude with a Live Musical Kirtan (A call and response form of group chanting). Amy on Harmonium, Dave DeBenedetto on Guitar and Jim Romeo on Percussion will lead you through original compositions of simple, ancient chants. This workshop is for all levels and no experience necessary.

Yoga this Week – September 26, 2016

Good Morning Dearest Yoga Students,

Having spent the weekend with one of my favorite yoga teachers, Rolf Gates, I am filled with a refreshed enthusiasm for my practice and my life.  His teachings are rooted in the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali and the Buddha Dharma. Which is both practical experience and loving kindness.   By having an Intention, and paying Attention we can come to a deep Understanding that the basic need to be loved, accepted and forgiven is in all of us and that to begin by forgiving ourselves is to open the wide doorway to forgive others.     The most basic teachings are sometimes the most profound.  I awoke this morning hearing this message:

“The most important things we can do in our life is to not harm ourselves, not harm others and let our actions be rooted in loving kindness.”

At the end of the day, at the end of our lives, aren’t these truly the only things that matter?

Beach Yoga 645pm with Live Music Tonight!

As the Beach Yoga Season is beginning to wind down (Only a few more weeks left of sunlight), we are having a special treat tonight!  Michael Smith and friends will be joining us with live musical accompaniment! (Bring a friend and come two for $25) Class Cards always honored.

Class begins at 645pm as the sun (surya) begins to set at 736pm.     Experiencing all the colors and beauty of the sun after it sinks into the water reminds me of feeling the beautiful, vibrational echo of a yoga pose after we let it go!  There is much beauty in the letting go.

Please arrive a before 645 so we can promptly head down to the sand.  We won’t want to miss a moment!
