Yoga this Week – November 12, 2017

Image may contain: text

Dearest Yoga Students,

Many changes continue to take place in all of our lives.  Some welcome and some not so welcome, however, I have found they always do lead to an opening, a shift that takes shape and becomes something new and wonderful to explore.  Our yoga practice helps us to learn to meet changes head on with steadiness and ease.  We can take a breath, hold our pose with tenderness and watch the changes take place.  Yoga teaches us that our lives, our bodies  and our minds are malleable, shapeable and that we are never stuck.  We can grow, adapt and become more courageous than we ever thought we could when we let go of fear and walk through that doorway of change.

Yoga this Week – April 24, 2017

What we’re trying to do in yoga is to create a union, and so to deepen a yoga pose is to actually increase the union of the pose, not necessarily put your leg around your head.

~Rodney Yee

See full size image

Each time we come to our mats, we have a chance to explore interconnection. We begin with our breath and move into our bodies, but it doesn’t stop there. As we create connection with a pose, we adjust, consider, explore, become present and breathe into the experience. We soften into the edges of the pose and watch them dissolve as we flow moment to moment; this might very well lead you to “put your leg around your head”  Integration, alignment and breath leads you deeper into your body, into the mystery.    As you move into this day, feel into the energy around you. Integrate, align and breath within the moments and see if you can increase the most important connection of all; the present.

“To have a sacred place…is an absolute necessity for anybody today.  You must have a room (or corner of a room) …, where you can simply bring forth what you are and what you might be.  This is a place of creative incubation.  At first you may find that nothing happens there, but if you have a sacred place and use it, something (wonderful) eventually will happen”
                                          Joseph Campbell
imagesss - Copy
Let’s face it, we could all use a week long retreat away from all of our demands and responsibilities but that is not always possible.  You can, however, learn to create that sacred space and retreat to it whenever you feel inclined.  Also, carving out a certain amount of time at a specific time of day can afford you the structure and discipline to find that quiet, alone time we all crave.  Whether it be 10 minutes sitting in quiet contemplation or an hour of gentle stretching, try creating a space of your own somewhere in your home.  Even if it is just a corner where you place a candle, journal or some other meaningful reminders.  Once you take the time to make this simple sacred space, you will soon wonder how you ever did without it.

Yoga this Week – January 15, 2017

**No Tuesday Morning Class this Week**

thoughts

We can either let our thoughts pull us in different directions like wind blows a leaf at will or we can stop and be the still point like a tree, standing firm as the turbulence moves around and through us.  We cannot stop the mind, just like we can’t control people, places or things around us, but we can choose to be the calm force amidst the changing winds.  Meditation teaches us to “be still and know”, becoming still allows us to see our thoughts with clarity so when we leave our practice we have a better sense of who we are and what is really important to us. These truths lie beneath habitual thought patterns, stilling your body, focusing on your breath is like going underneath the water to discover that an entire new world exists beneath the surface..  A world that lives within you. A world that is calm, focused and knows exactly how to be in this sometimes confusing environment of the mind.

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?

Greetings dearest yoga students,

“Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions”.  I love this quote from the late, great BKS Iyengar.  Maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life is not as easy as it sounds.  Situations, events, people and even our own minds can throw us out of balance leading us to act in, shall I say, less than skillful ways.  The great news is that we have ways to return to equanimity and integrity.  Just as if we are coming into a yoga pose, we can breath, feel, relax and realign to what is true, right and integral in the moment.  Even if we have to stop and realign a thousand times a day, this is the practice and this is living your yoga.  May you allow it to guide you through this day!!

Ola Amigos,

Just returning from Tulum, Mexico in the Yucatan Peninsula, I am filled with energy from the natural world both above and below the sea.  It always amazes me how nature can both nurture, awaken, excite and renew our spirits.  In the same way our yoga practice unites us to that which is everlasting and unchanging:  Gazing at the shore and sky, swimming with the fish, and feeling the warm ground underneath the soles of our bare feet connect us to that which is in perfect balance and harmony.  Enjoy this season of abundance, give thanks for the free world that we have the honor to roam and always, pray for those that are not as fortunate as we are right now.

Greetings dear Yoga Students,

Hoping this email finds you safe, content and free!

Chanting the Gayatri Mantra, specifically in increments of 108 (sacred number), brings about calm, focus and sends intelligent energy out into the world.  We will be chanting this mantra at 915am before the start of our asana class to help raise the vibration in  and around us.
