Yoga this Week & USB Interview – March 4, 2018

 

 

Greetings dearest yoga students,

Yoga teaches us to enjoy and trust the process; to have the right intention and alignment and let go of the results.  If we can simply learn to trust and have faith in our own capacity for our highest selves to show up, we may find true, uncontrived freedom of expression as well as the ability to be courageous in difficult moments.  What is your vision today, can you hold that in your heart and mind and trust the process?

I had such a wonderful time joining Captain Phil at 90.1 USB Radio Station on Friday night.  If you would like to give a listen to my interview, click on one of the links below.  I come on at about 28 minutes in.  The interview ends with one of my favorite songs by a wonderful local musician, Rory Kelly, it’s called “If You Teach a Bird to Sing”  Hope you enjoy it!

Yoga this Week – February 25, 2018

Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,

In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Sutra 1:2 gives us the true meaning of yoga practice:  To still the every moving fluctuations of the mind.  The “Chitta” is like the lens we see the world through.     Our Chitta is colored, or clouded, by the vritti’s;  the things we have been taught, the society we live in, the family we grew up with and the experiences that have made an impression on us as we grow.  These perceptions can keep our mind in constant fluctuation (vritti) and  block our awareness of our higher consciousness (Buddhi) or ability to discern, intuit and understand deeper meanings in our lives.

Yoga – to Unite    Chitta – Consciousness     Vritti – Fluctuations    Nirodhah – Quieting of

The practice of yoga is to clear  our lenses (Chitta’s)  so that we see things as they really are, clear of personal attachment to outcomes, beliefs and misconceptions.  This is the goal of yoga. this is why we practice.  To clear our bodies and minds of habitual patterns so we can open up to what is truly important and true in our lives.  So we can open up to the wisdom of our higher self that is always looking out for our good and the good of all.

Yoga this Week – June 12, 2017

“Your life is a sacred journey.  It is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way….And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love”  .  

                                                                   ~~Caroline Adams

Returning home from an adventurous weekend, I am reminded of the great power in being still, being challenged, being opened and being free.  Stepping out of our comfort zone, whether it is to sit on a meditation cushion, step on to our yoga mats, climb a mountain or open ourselves up to another, helps to expand our “vision of what is possible” in our lives.  Life itself is the greatest journey we will ever take.  It is an adventure into the unknown forest of emotions, into the complexity of our minds, the amazing resilience of our bodies, the flowing energy of relationships and most importantly, an adventure into that deep inner wellspring of compassion and love  from which all magnificent tales of triumph are born.

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.

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.

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.
