Yoga this Week – June 30, 2013

It is time. If you are to walk the path of heart, then it is time…”

If not now, when? If not me, who? To walk the path of the heart is a great honor. Every human has the choice to walk this path, but very few will decide to make it. Why? Well, because you can’t act and behave like everyone else behaves. You must be the person who will learn to look within. You must be the person who will be fully accountable for yourself. You must be the person who prays and meditates. You must be the person who will sacrifice. You must decide to be a Peaceful Warrior

–Nippawanock, ARAPAHOE

Greetings to all my Peaceful Warriors,

Hoping you all have enjoyed this wonderful summer weekend!  We will try for Sunset Yoga Classes on the beach – weather and tide permitting.   If you plan on joining in for Beach Yoga, we will meet at my house and carpool down to Hallock Landing Beach as I have a sticker to park in the lot – Check Email or FB Page by 5pm to see if class will be on the beach or in our yoga room.  If you decide to drive down on your own, please be mindful of the “No Parking” Signs.  Contact me if you have any questions.  I hope to continue this beautiful tradition of taking our yoga outdoors and I appreciate your patience as we work out the details.  I promise you, it is worth it!!!

Our freedom affords us a myriad of opportunities in our lives.   One of the most important ones is the opportunity to pursue any spiritual path we desire to explore in our own individual way. I express much gratitude to all of you for enabling me to bring yoga into your lives.  The freedom to teach yoga and bring the physical and spiritual disciplines to my students is a privilege that propels my spiritual path farther and wider than you will ever know.  Take a moment to say a prayer of gratitude to all those that fight for freedom in small and large ways and enjoy your life as it is today.

Yoga this Week – June 16, 2013 – Happy Father’s Day!

“Isn’t life grand?  With all its beauty, hardships and craziness, isn’t life itself an amazing, wild ride?”,  my big brother said as he almost squeezed the very breath out of me with his engulfing bear hug.  We laughed as we continued to compare life to a big pot of stew with all its flavors intermingling creating a delicious, hardy meal that satisfies the soul,  and wished each other well as we went on our separate ways.  The little  whisper of his wisdom stayed with me overnight into this morning.  Life IS grand, with all its twists and turns,  it is still a beautiful journey to be both respected and cherished like a ride up a scenic mountain highway; at times scary, at times exciting, at times distasteful, at times calm or breathtakingly beautiful.  Cherish your life today, cherish the fathers that are in your life as well as beyond this life.  Be present to the unique flavor of today, be compassionate, be humble, be aware of the river of awareness that runs just under the surface of things that whispers…”Isn’t Life Grand?”…

Yoga this Week – June 9, 2013 – No Thursday Night this Week

“I’ve come to believe that the highest form of prayer is to pray and yet ask for nothing.  To resonate with awareness, acceptance, and gratitude is surely to pray.  To breathe and accept gratefully the air that surrounds me into my body…..to be conscious of this, as we breath,
turns the physical practice into a devotional one”
                                            Sting

Dearest Yoga Students,

Hoping this moment finds you  consciously breathing and accepting gratefully all that surrounds you.   Whether you accept your present circumstances graciously or with a heavy heart, acceptance is the key that unlocks the door to serenity.  It is my intention that as you dive deeper and deeper into your yoga practice,  you too begin to find the spiritual foundation that yoga is built on.  Allow the feelings  of gratitude and loving kindness  that arise during your practice to become your “prayer” of devotion to  that universal energy that works through all things including you.

Yoga this Week – May 25, 2013

Sagittarius _lunar_eclipse

The Phoenix rises from the ashes of the past.  You, too, can recreate yourself and make a fresh start.  You can experience a Brilliant Breakthrough.  That is this Full Moon’s message.”

Hatha Yoga 

        Ha – Sun           Tha – Moon       Yoga – to connect

Hatha Yoga is to connect and balance the elements of the sun and moon that lies within us.   In the early morning hours there was a full moon lunar eclipse.  This astrological event is both mysterious and powerful.  The energy of the full moon reminds us that we are complete, whole and abundant exactly as we are.  As the full moon reflects the brillance of the sun, our energetic, powerful “Ha”, sun element shines through and lights up our receptivity “tha” moon energy.  The sun and moon are deeply connected as is illustrated as the earth moves in front of the sun and changes the color of the white moon to a dark red filtering a small amount of sunlight on its surface.  This ha and tha energy within us are deeply connected as well.

See full size image

The full moon reminds us that all that has occured within our lives in the last month has led up to this moment.  It is a time to sit back, watch, allow and let it all be.  There are times for action in our lives and a time to let go.  Within our asana practice there are times of expending great effort to release energy, wake up our bodies and quiet our minds.  There are also times when we hold the pose, release in relaxation, sit still, let go and trust the process.  This ebb and flow, giving and receiving creates the balance we so long for in our lives.  We simply cannot hold on to pleasure  or force pain to go away, try as we might, we must accept as best we can the process.  Just as the moon cannot possibly hold on to its fullness or emptiness, we must let go and allow our lives to unfold;  trusing the phases of waining, waxing and fullness to bring us to wholeness again.

“When you experience yourself in stillness – that is, when you give your undivided attention to experiencing the truth about you – you will experience the conflict-free, calm, dynamic peace of perfectly centered abundant life energy”

Eric Shiffman

Greetings dearest yoga students,
Hoping this day finds you basking in the light of gratitude and surrender to what has materialized in your life.  Feel into this moment as you feel into a yoga pose.  Align yourself to the spaciousness of all this moment has to offer.  Breathe in acceptance and breathe out love.   Feel into the stillness at the end of your next breathe and connect to your true self as you draw near to the present, the here and now.  Draw up the finest quality energy and co-create your day as one that centers around peace, compassion and love.

Yoga this Week – March 24, 2013

The winds of grace are blowing all the time. You have only to raise your sail.
Sri Ramakrishna
Ajna Chakra – Third Eye

Purpose: Generates Intuition & Inner Wisdom

Energy: Soul

Element: Light

Location:  In between the eyebrows

Color Association: Indigo

Embraces: Self-Awareness

Spiritual Lesson: Material Detachment/Open-mindedness

Statement:  I See

 

Anja Chakra located in between the eyebrows is often referred to as the Third Eye. When this chakra opens it is like a gateway allowing divine wisdom to enter our minds. Like the wind it is always there waiting, all you have to do is allow it to flow.

The symbol of OM in the center of the chakra represents the unleashed energy of the Kundulini Snake rising upward. The crescent moon of feminine receptivity embraces the circle above it. This circle is a golden dot which is the essence of spiritual energy. It represents being in your center. When we chant the mantra “OM” we are embracing all of this universal divine energy, OM brings the ego self into union with the spirit self.

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.

Henry David Thoreau

The Ajna chakra opens us up to our highest intelligence which is a distinct balance between our intellect (our thinking mind) and our intuition (our feeling mind).
When the the ego realizes that the fulfillment of its highest dreams is only to be found through merging with the Higher Self, the false masks the ego has created fall away and who you thought you were or who you thought you ought to be lose their grip.  What we see is made up of all we were told is good, bad, ugly or beautiful thoughout our life.  Our third eye opens us up to our own inner guidance which may or may not agree with all we have learned.  When the third eye opens,  you allow your true self, with all its individual thoughts and feelings, to shine forth. So Hum, ” I am what I am” There is no guilt, no need for illusion or pretense. You are totally in the present and you realize that the you you have been seeking or trying to change into something or someone else has been there,  in complete perfection,  all along.

Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.

Yoga this Week – March 3, 2013

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

Elisabeth Kubler Ross

The Third Chakra – Manipura – Jewel of the Navel

  • Color – yellow
  • Physical Location – solar plexus
  • Purposes – mental understanding of emotional life
  • Spiritual Lesson – acceptance of your place in the life stream. (self-love)
  • Mental and Emotional Issues – self esteem, fear of rejection, oversensitivity to criticism, self-image fears, fears of our secrets being found out, indecisiveness
  • Information Stored Inside Sacral Chakra– personal power, personality, consciousness of self within the universe (sense of belonging), knowing
  • Seed Sound – RAM

      Greetings dearest yoga students,

This week’s study takes us to the third chakra located in our solar plexus, the Manipura.  This chakra is deeply associated with the relationship you have with yourself.  It deals with self-esteem, personal power, knowing who you are and trusting in your intuition or “gut feeling” to guide you into manifesting your desires and dreams.   How we feel about ourselves determines the quality of our life and how successful we will be in our relationships, our work and our own capacity for self healing.  A balanced third chakra will guide us to our own unique gifts and the work that both gives you pleasure and supports those around you.

I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.

Louisa May Alcott

Carolyn Myss describes an element of the Third Chakra in her book Anatomy of the Spirit  as “While we measure our own success in terms of our personal comfort and security, the universe measures our success by how much we have learned”.    The Manipura Chakra is associated with the element of fire, and is meant to transform and challenge us to find our inner strength and connection to our individual higher power when dealing with the world in which we live.  The color yellow, like the sun,  is also associated with warmth and healing.  When we truly find our own personal power, although it will likely take us to new cycles of learning and challenges, it creates a beautiful inner strength that both supports us and nurtures us from the inside.  Fuel your inner fire by repeating the mantra, “RAM” as your read the words below  connecting to that area below your rib cage an around your navel, the Manipura.

Yoga this Week – No Tuesday Morning Class

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”

~ Maya Angelou

 

The Root Chakra Elements

 

Sanskrit Name:  Mulhadhara Meaning: “Root support” Root Chakra Element: Earth/Physical Root Chakra Keywords: “I Am” – grounded, present, safe, secure, healthy Associated Color: Red Musical Note: C Organs: Spinal column, legs, hips, kidneys and adrenal gland Root Chakra Consciousness: Survival, grounding and balancing the physical and spiritual life

The root chakra (Mulhadhara) is located at the base of the spine and radiates a rich color of red.  This chakra deeply connects us with the earth.  It is in this chakra that we ground into our lives, who we are and our sense of belonging.  When this chakra is balanced it tells us we are loved for who we are and that our basic needs for survival (love, food, shelter) are being met.  It affords us the inner confidence and courage to be who we truly are because deep inside our root, we know we are loved.  When we feel grounded and secure in our lives we become willing to take risks, to be vulnerable enough to make mistakes and to give to others more freely without fear of judgement, rejection or lack of resources.
See full size image
If you are feeling unbalanced in these areas, unsure of your life’s direction or your place in this world, try this simple Root Chakra Meditation.  Sit in an east comfortable cross legged position on the floor.  Connect to the base of your spine and feel the energy of the earth rising up.  Chant the sound of LAM, LAM, LAM and feel its vibration radiate throughout your entire body.  Think of the Mulhadhara chakra as a lotus flower grounded in the mud and muck of life’s suffering and pain and as you chant the sound of LAM, visualize this lotus rising up your spine, clean, clear, open and free…..end your meditation by repeating this mantra.
I forgive myself for being Imperfect
I forgive myself for Making Mistakes
I forgive myself for being a Learner in this Lifetime
So Hum
I am what I am

“You are seeking joy in far off places, but the spring of joy is in your heart.  The haven of peace is in yourself”

Chakra Color

The Chakras System

Whether you are aware of the chakra system inside your subtle body or not, chakras or energy centers interact with your spiritual, emotional and physical bodies at every moment. The chakra’s are spirals of energy, one relating to the other, that contribute to our overall well being. In Sanskrit the word Chakra translates as “wheel”.  Each wheel spins a particular vibrational speed creating a vacuum that draws in anything it encounters on its level. All of life’s experiences have an effect on our entire selves whether positive or negative.  Negative experiences force our chakra’s to close as positive experiences enable them to open. In most of us as we move out of childhood, harsh reality begins to effect one chakra or another and they begin to become unbalanced and stop working in harmony with each other. We get stuck in cetain ways of being, not knowing why or how to move forward.. Blocked energy will eventually end up effecting you emotionally and physically as well.

Yoga, body awareness and meditation connects deeply to our chakra system and can act as a rebalancing tool. You may have experienced a deep release when you began practicing yoga. You may even have released cleansing tears or laughter during or after your practice. Each yoga pose directly effects one or more chakras. For instance, backbending opens up the heart and throat chakras while hip openers effect the root and sacral chakras.  Incorporating the color, sound and mantra to the corresponding chakra also has powerful healing qualities while meditating.

With each coming week, our study will focus on each individual chakra, begining at the root (Muladhara) all the way up the the crown (Sahasrara).  Below is a chart of the chakras, where in the body it is located and its’ individual charactoristics. Next time you feel stuck in a certain area, either emotionally or physically, you may want to check out the chakra associated with your discomfort and work with it in your own way. We do this work not only for ourselves but for the world;  When we clear our own inner energies, we can then be open to those around us, being of service with compassion, power, purpose and joy, expressing our dharma in the truest sense.
