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 – November 11, 2018

“Through practice, I’ve come to see that the deepest source of my misery is not wanting things to be the way they are. Not wanting myself to be the way I am. Not wanting the world to be the way it is. Not wanting others to be the way they are. Whenever I’m suffering, I find this ‘war with reality’ to be at the heart of the problem.”

                                                           Stephen Cope

Focus on being at peace with your reality, whatever that might mean to you.  The war within quiets when you cultivate santosha – contentment; allow yourself to bloom wherever you are planted today and within whatever circumstances life finds you.

Join us for a beautiful evening of healing and sharing energy. All are welcome whether you are new to Reiki, a Reiki practitioner, or just curious to know what it’s all about. Reiki is an ancient healing modality and is non-invasive. The healing energy is channeled through the hands of the practitioner to the receiver. Reiki calms the nervous system, releases muscle tension and emotional imbalances. Reiki enhances the body’s own capacity for healing love and light. Contact me for location details if you have never been to my space. Suggested donation $10 per person. If possible bring something to be donated to our local food pantry.

Save the Date!!     Thursday, December 20th at  7pm for our 11th Annual Winter Solstice Gathering

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 – May 20,2018

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.
                                                          Doug Coupland

Greetings dear yoga students,

I have been so enamored by all the birds are visiting my feeder this year.  So many varieties, sizes, shapes and colors fill my vision with vibrancy and joy.  I often think about the way they live.  So simply in tune with each other and nature.  They are a constant reminder,  as I sit at my computer  watching them swoop and land and soar,   not to take life so seriously. Much like my time on my yoga mat, observing them reminds me to trust, let go and fly into the moments of my life with purpose, freedom and joy. Birds are truly a miracle to behold, they prove to us that there is a finer state of being we can strive to attain and that state of being is yoga.

On Children

Kahlil Gibran

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let our bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

 Happy Mother’s Day Dearest Yoga Students,

Whether you are a mother, grandmother, son or daughter – we all have something wonderful to celebrate today; unconditional love.  Think about that term for a minute.  The Wikipedia definition is:  Unconditional Love   is a term that means to love someone regardless of one’s actions or beliefs.  Unconditional love separates the individual from her or his behaviors. The individual is loved unconditionally as a “perfect” child of the Higher Power.
See full size image
Revel in what it feels like to be loved without conditions, without judgement with pure loving kindness for who you are.   Focus on the gratitude you have for all the mothers in your life past and present;  your birth mother, a friend, a sister, a diety, a mentor …and then recycle all the love you have been given as an offering to the universe.  Meditate on the amazing creation of life and the cycles that continue on and on and on.  Sa Ta Na Ma…Life, Death, Rebirth and Infinity. 
“A Mother’s Love need not be Deserved” 
Erich Fromm
