Dear Yoga Students,

Hoping this chilly day finds you safe, warm and grateful. Every time you come to your mat and spend time with yourself you are investing in your health and well being. The season is upon us, it is time to give to yourself so you can give your best to others!  Remember to put your name in the box everytime you make the effort to come to class, the more times your name is in the box, the more chances you have to win that Private Session with me (to do with what you like) and the more vitality, calm and peace you will feel.

Elevate, Connect & Enjoy our Sangha

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 – October 10, 2016

The important thing is to be awake now, to feel the transparency, to feel the universal shining through the individual, and then to allow life to express itself though us.

                 Rolf Gates

Set aside some time to  sit silently and connect to your breath.  Close your eyes and begin listening to sounds around you.  Allow the air of your breath to pass through you with clarity.   Let go of your need to control your outer circumstances, feel the fluidity and transparency of life.  We are not solid; we are light, joy, love and bliss anytime we make the decision to connect to that universal energy and allow “life to express itself through us”.

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.

Let us meditate on the light of the sun, which shines on all living things and everything in between.  Let this pure light of intelligence illuminate our intellects so that we may make the right decisions at the right time for the good of all.  Let there be peace, and peace and perfect peace everywhere!

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.
