Come indulge yourself in this special relaxation-rejuvenation practice.

Restorative Yoga postures gently open the body with little to no effort. Reiki Healing promotes overall well-being and balance while essential oil therapy creates a global shift in the mind, releasing stress and uplifting the emotions. This special class does NOT include acupuncture but will focus more on the healing qualities of restorative yoga with an emphasis on the Chakra System..

“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

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!

Lion’s Breath

The Kleshas

Asmita – Ego

Our Ego is a complicated part of our psyche.  On one hand is it the part of the right brain that allows us to take action, to make plans and to accomplish what we desire in our lifetime.  It drives us forward.  On the other hand, it is when the ego side of us begins to attach our existence to what we do, what we have, the past or the future,  or any other outer impermanent feature of our lives,  that it causes suffering.  When our ego begins to whisper “you are not good enough as you are, you need to do more, be more. to be whole” is when it begins to increase anxiety and creates trouble inside ourselves and to others around us. The hunger for control and outer validation never gets satisfied and we remain in a state of depletion when we let the ego guide our days.

Yogic practices greatly soften the ego’s hold on us, Ethical Practices such as:  nonviolence, truthfulness, nonstealing, nonexcess, nonpossessiveness, purity, contentment, self-discipline, self-study and surrender to the divine plan as well as yoga asana, breath work and meditation all bring us closer to the reality of life and away from misperception.  In walking a spiritual path we keep our ego in check because these guidelines create inner tranquility and equanimity, we stay in the stream of goodness and out of self-seeking, ego driven rewards.

When something doesn’t feel quite like “you”, check in with your intentions.  Is the goal to attain some outer praise, avoid some inner pain or simply satisfy the need to feel validated?  If so, stop and breathe into the present moment, align yourself to what’s really important and let go of the rest.  Most of all, stay on the path that feels true to you, and only you, stepping away from fear and into the light of your true self.

HAPPENINGS…

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
