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.

“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 – March 8, 2015

Greetings dearest yoga students,

Listening to this all too familiar song being sung in a not so familiar way last night, allowed me to hear the amazing lyrics as if for the first time.  Those three simple words;” Let It Be”, have such power.  Sometimes all we have to do in times of confusion, sadness, anger, or regret is just to let it be.  Let things be as they are, let people be who they are, let the world be as it is and sit quietly waiting for an answer to come.  All too often we tend to come at a situation with fear and impatience only to find another obstacle that creates yet more anxiety.  While challenging yoga poses can invoke the same panicky pushing, we are reminded to breathe, relax and feel what adjustments we need to make to experience the sukha and sthira(sweetness and steadiness) in the posture.  “There will be an answer, Let it Be” reminds us to breathe, relax and feel as the right answer comes in the still, small voice that is your highest self.

Yoga This Week – March 1, 2015

“When experiencing this absolute true knowledge,
all previous samskaras (patterns) are left behind and new ones are prevented from sprouting” 
Yoga Sutra I.50
 5987d-goddes-01

Hari Om dear yoga students,
The Sanskrit word, samskara, translates as a subconscious impression.  Samskaras are deep seeded patterns that our mind continues to play over and over again.  It is the thoughts, impressions and memories that we have acquired over our lifetimes that create conditioned responses and eventually become our habits. When we feel stuck in our lives or continue to approach situations the same way over and over again, hoping for different results, it is often due to our samskaras.   Obsessions and compulsions have their root in the samskara of past conditions, but they can also produce positive tendencies, like committing to meditate or practice yoga everyday.

  As we step on our mat, do our pranayama or sit on our meditation cushion, we face ourselves from the inside.  The stillness within the movement of thoughts breaths or postures help to create space in between our impulses and actions.   The creative art of detaching from our negative patterns allows us to make those much needed changes in our lives.  However, more importantly it allows us to look at our emotional patterns more like the weather around us; we are in the weather but we are not the weather.    The weather changes but we remain the same.  This compassionate awareness reminds us of an even more important point:  That we all feel the same feelings.  The patterns you struggle with are , most likely, the same as others in your life. Ultimately, becoming aware of your own samskaras expands your circle of compassion so you can reach out to others from a place of knowing.  Yoga is all about clearing ourselves so we can go out and help others.  What we heal in ourselves, we heal in the world.
