We come to our mats from all corners of life and various transitional stages.  We come to our classes, not only to empower our connection to our selves but, sometimes more importantly,  to connect and help empower each other!

Yoga this Week – November 12, 2017

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.

***Please Note that Wednesday Night is switched to Thursday Night in –  Yoga Room – Farewell to Beach Yoga***

A snippet of our Equinox Goddess Retreat!!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  

Marianne Williamson

Our third annual Equinox Goddess Retreat was amazing; the weather, the space, the place and all the Goddesses were breathtakingly beautiful.  Words cannot describe the gratitude I feel for this experience!  Onward and inward we go to the lovely season of Autumn!

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.

Greetings dearest Yoga Students,

In Yoga there are many dualities.  We ground down to rise up, hug in to shine out, breath in fully to exhale completely; go within to be present to what is all around us; the opposing action creates the unfolding of expansion, and beauty.

Last night my son came home beaming after  visiting a couple who had lost a child a few years back.  He said the mom had been feeling down and one of the boys suggested they visit, bring flowers and say hi.  The couple was so moved they invited the boys for dinner (feeding four teenage boys is a feat in itself!), and the visit ended up being much longer than anticipated.  The couple told stories of their teenage daughter and laughed and reminisced.  The boys were elevated, filled with pride and purpose by  lifting another; they expanded and experienced the beauty of giving.  Just as yoga poses reverberate in our bodes, I believe this experience will not be easily forgotten.

Sometimes the best things in life, are the opposite of what we think we need.  Ground down in your life today to shine out.  If your feeling defeated, down or frustrated, try giving to another and experience the expansion, the opening and the beauty that comes from giving.

“He [came to] realize that identifying his practice with things that could be lost [advanced postures & breath work, deep states of meditation],  would always leave him susceptible to fear anything that could be taken away through sickness aging or life circumstances was not a very wise thing to stand on.  It  was then that he realized that the only security lay in using his yoga practice to tether his awareness to the part of himself that was and is eternal.   It is in this tethering of awareness to the unchanging core of our being that true security can be gained….As our practice deepens and we gain confidence and courage,  we develop a growing appetite for this groundlessness and we start to yearn for a more liberated and open experience of ourselves and we become more willing to let go of old hand holds.We start to feel a resolute commitment to real freedom & we become vigilant about things that offer the trappings of freedom but fall short of delivering the goods”  Donna Farhi from Bringing Yoga to Life

images (18)

Greetings dearest yoga students,

The above excerpt from Donna Farhi’s book is, in essence, describing what Patanjali wrote about in the Yoga Sutra’s called Kleshas.  Kleshas are basically the core confusion of what is permanent with what is impermanent and the suffering we cause ourselves when we try to hold on to the impermanent things.  We all have fear of losing things we hold dear.  It may be loved ones, our jobs, our health, our strength, our physical appearance or the myriad of ego driven personas we believe ourselves to be. Finding rest within this “groundlessness” of living with the truth of uncertainty allows us to see through false promises,  let go and live with freedom, peace and joy!

    “Shall I tell you what I find beautiful about you?  You are at your very best when things are worst”  Starman

download (1)

Utkatasana (chair pose)  exemplifies the amazing ability of the human spirit to rise up and find the strength, grace and power we didn’t even know we had.  We have all had experiences  where   the bottom seems to fall out from underneath our life; a devastating phone call comes or some unexpected turn of events sends life into a tailspin.   It is at precisely these times, when help seems to come out of nowhere; people organize themselves to help, families let go of their differences to work together for the common goal, friends come from all directions.  It is at our worst,  that we become our very best.

If you have a moment today, take chair pose for a few breaths.  Breathe into the grounding at your feet, feel how your heart lifts and your hands reach up toward the sky.  Embodying this powerful pose allows us to experience our own power and also the source of power around us that enables us to lift ourselves  up and bask in the light and love that is always there.  Thich Nhat Hahn says “No Mud, No Lotus” which means that we must go through the dark, the struggles, the sticky stuff to reveal our true beauty.   In the depths of the winter, dig deep and reach high.  Spring is surely on its way and  we await its coming with joy, strength and resolve.

Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart. ~
Marcus Aelius Aurelius

Greetings dear yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you fostering a sense of grateful anticipation for the day and week ahead. Acceptance of life circumstances does not mean to give in, give up or throw in the towel. Acceptance is looking at what fate has brought to your door, examining the facts with an open heart and clear mind and then from deep within gather the courage to do what you need or do – which in some instances is the courage to do absolutely nothing. Whenever we are at odds with something, feel “off-kilter” or are experiencing anxiety, it usually can be traced back to our inability to accept what is happening in the present moment. Acceptance enables us to enjoy the scenery of our lives the way it is, even if it is not what we expected. So dive in to the present moment of your life today and meditate on the areas that you meet with resistance; breathe a compassionate breath, bless your circumstances, love the people who join you on your journey with all your heart and find the peace and serenity that comes with true acceptance.
