Yoga this Week – September 29, 2013

“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart.  Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language.  Do not now look for the answers.  They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them.  It is a question of experiencing everything.  At present you need to live the question.  Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.”
                                    Rainer Maria Rilke
Greetings dearest yoga students,
Being at peace with the unknown is one of the greatest accomplishments we can acheive moment by moment.  To be “okay” with not knowing how things will turn out means we must first banish fear and replace it with faith.  Increasing our capacity for faith immediatly allows us to let go of our percieved control over our life.  Having faith that things will turn out alright enables us experience all of life without having to figure everything out.   Living the question means to let the answers be revealed when it is time so that you can remain in the present moment without anxiety. Many precious moments are squandered away overthinking situations that either have already happened or haven’t happened yet.   So try to LOVE the question that this day brings as if you were turning a corner on a beautiful mountain and be open to the beauty that the landscape of your life lays out before you.

Yoga this Week – July 28, 2013

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.                                                           Doug Coupland
 Good Morning dearest yoga students,
 Step outside your door and take in all the amazing abundance of the natural world.  We can learn so much from natures rhythms as we allow her to nurture, sooth and remind us we are all part of the same whole.  I get a deep sense of comfort as I watch the birds fly back and forth from tree to tree.   They have the freedom and joy many of us long for.   The many varieties, sizes and colors interact and co-exist in harmony with each other and the world around them, adjusting from season to season with the ability to simply sing after a storm.   Take time to become aware of how the birds, the trees, the water, the wind are orchestrating a beautiful symphony all around you.  Allow yourself to soar into the day, whatever your plans.  Try to look up often, walk barefoot to experience the earth,  and enjoy the breeze as it caresses your skin.   Remind yourself you are as free as the birds in the air to sing your unique song in order to  make the world a better place.
“A bird does not sing because it has the answer.  It sings because it has a song.”
                                                           Chinese Proverb

Yoga this Week – July 7, 2013

Yoga this Week - February 25, 2012

 

When you do yoga postures,
surrender to the moment,
be in the moment,
don`t worry about weather
you can touch your
toes or not,
just experience the process.

Then try to carry this attitude
into the rest of your day,
away from tension,
guilt and anxiety.

Experience is the door
to the here and now.

                    Amrit Kala

 Hari Om dearest yoga students, 

Non-attachment is one of the most difficult aspects of our practice to attain.  We attach ourselves to an ideal of what our life should look like, what our yoga practice should feel like, what our world should be like and then only create suffering when it does not measure up.  To truly be in the process,present to the here and now is a gift.   When we walk through that doorway, we feel the guilt, shame and anxiety, which have become like guests who have overstayed their welcome, slip away.  We all deserve to be free, we all deserve to experience joy and true joy and freedom is only found in one place:  the here and now…

If you plan on joining in for Beach Yoga, we will meet at my house and carpool down to Hallock Landing Beach  – 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!!!

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 – 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.

Yoga this Week – May 19, 2013

 ” The Past and the Future is a joke to me now. I see that they’re nothin’. I see they ain’t here. The only thing that’s here is you and me…..I love you. Not, not like they told you love is….[the story books are bull],  love don’t make things nice, it ruins everything! It breaks your heart, it makes things a mess. We, we aren’t here to make things perfect. Snowflakes are perfect, stars are perfect. Not us! Not us!”   
 Ronny Cammareri, “Moonstruck

See full size image

Storybooks and fairytales have a way to paint a picture of life that always has a happy ending.  The guy gets the girl, the conflict resolves and all is as it should be.  But what we must remember is that life is full of suffering.  That loving, and being truly vulnerable in your life doesn’t always look nice.  Truly living wholeheartedly means breaking your heart sometimes, making a mess.  The above quote is one of my all time favorite movie lines.  We are not here to be perfect, for our lives to look flawless, to create what society’s idea of a beautiful life is.    We are here to have our hearts broken a thousand times because we are meant to experience the oceans of emotions our life is full of.  We are here to experience the wonder of being human; with all its hills and valleys,  like the moon we continually cycle through a myriad of phases to become whole again.

See full size image

Yoga helps lead us away from this idea of perfectionism, that somehow we are flawed because our practice is not perfect.  We fall down, we sweat, we struggle  but we get back up again, we return to our mats and gain strength, fortitude and hope.  “We breath and something in us softens, makes space for the imperfections”.  So let go of the storybook idea of how your life should look.  Let go and enjoy the scenery of  today.  Be vulnerable, be open, allow grief, joy, success and failure, falling down and getting back up to all be part of the great tapestry that is your life.  When you reach into the beauty of imperfection;   the crooked tree, the moon’s craters,  the clouded sky, tears in a loved one’s eyes, experience it fully, turning away from nothing that you find.  The messes will be there,  the heartaches will surface, the past and future are but memories and dreams, breathe it all in and find your joy in being present through it all for yourself and those around you.
