Yoga this Week – May 31, 2015


2015-05-31 10.56.49

       “We depend on nature not only for our physical survival. We also need nature to show us the way home, the way out of the prison of our minds. We got lost in doing, thinking, remembering, anticipating; lost in a maze of complexity and a world of problems. We have forgotten what rocks plants and animals still know. We have forgotten how to be— to be still, to be ourselves, to be where life is here and now.”

Eckhart Tolle

The Empowerer

Nature’s power to nurture us never ceases to amaze me.  The natural world reminds us of what is truly important and to let go of the rest.  We humans create all kinds of complex dynamics which keep our minds busy and our bodies tense.  Take time to receive the bounty of beauty that is always there for the taking right outside your door.  Make a special effort to experience nature everyday, either by cultivating your garden, sitting quietly and listening to the birds, feeling the embrace of the wind flowing around you or the tingling warmth of sun on your skin. Observe how the trees remain patient, grounded, growing and still within the movement of life.   Connect, ground down, let go and allow life to flow with the intelligent rhythm of nature and just BE!

Greetings Dearest Yoga Students,

Have faith in your practice and the ability of your yoga to calm, nurture, enliven and release.  When we move our panic energy our practice through breath work, postures, chanting, and/or meditation we effect not only our physical bodies, but our emotional bodies as well.  Moving prana (life force energy) within ourselves allows us to be more open, more willing, more free to connect to that universal prana that is available for the taking and connects us to all beings everywhere.  In essence, it allows us to show up for ourselves and for others in our life.  Trust your yoga to move through you, all you have to do is show up and be present.  Your Yoga mat will catch you if you fall.

” The witnessing soul is like the sky. The birds fly in the sky but they don’t leave any footprints….[The] man who is awakened lives in such a way that he leaves no footprints…. He never looks ahead, he never looks back,  he lives in the moment.”

Yoga this Week – March 22, 2015

“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 your life 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.  Allow the act of being in your truth bring you a sense of calm and a realization, not that things will be okay, but that things are okay and wonderful already, right now as they are

Yoga this Week-February 15, 2015 – Remember to Check Out all the Happenings..Jai!!


“The goal is not to tie ourselves in knots …

we’re already tied in knots. 
The aim is to untie the knots in our hearts. 
The aim is to unite with the ultimate, loving, and peaceful power in the universe.”

– Max Strom

mother earth globe

Take a breath.  A long, relaxed inhale and hold that fullness, that tightness, those knots for a moment…..and when you are ready, open up your channels and exhale long and deep with a big sigh.   Let go of your worries of the future and regrets of the  past and Be present to all this moment holds.  Notice in detail the vibrant colors and shine, the movement of the wind, the sounds, smells and feelings that are all held in existence around and inside you.  Be the seer, the witness of this miraculous day that we are here and alive.  Untie  the knots that bind your heart and unite with the amazing power of the universe.

In the words of Eckhart Tolle, “Anytime we step into the present moment, we are able to experience the sacredness of life“.

Saturday Morning, March 7th at 8:45  to 10:30am Workshop with Kim Williams (Kishori)

Prana, Teja and Ojas: Vital Essences of Transformation

Dharma Talk, Pranyama & Asana Class

Yoga is an inner alchemical process through which we can develop higher consciousness. We each have the capacity within us to go beyond ordinary human awareness to reach a state of Self-realization.   Prana, Tejas, and Ojas  support health, creativity and well-being. They provide the foundation for deeper yogic and meditational practices.   We will especially focus on how to cultivate Ojas as that is the foundation on which our yoga practice rests. It is responsible for our immunity and on a deeper level, our sense of well-being or our bliss body. Ojas is directly linked with the essence of divine love within and can be cultivated through bhakti yoga and a lifestyle full of wholesome pleasures.
