Yoga this Week – Kirtan on Sunday & New Class Forming!!

**Scroll Down for important schedule updates**
“Clay is molded into vessels and because of the space where there is nothing you can carry water. 
Space is carved out from a wall and because of the place where there is nothing you can receive light. 
Be empty, and you will remain full…”
                                       Lao-Tzu

Dearest Yoga Students

Hoping this email finds you enjoying the bright morning sunshine and aware of all that you have been given in your life.  The more we become empty, the more we become full.  When we give ourselves time to become quiet, stilling the inner chatter of our minds and our bodies, we can become receptive to our lives instead of trying to control the direction.  Try to carve out a little emptiness in your lives as the days become shorter.    If you give yourself the gift of quiet reflection; whether you come to yoga class, journal, sit in silent meditation or cuddle with a loved one, you will allow yourself to be filled with the love, light, energy and peace that is always there for the taking.  A vessel that is full has no room;  so open your doors and windows, de-clutter your inner house and make space for the things that truly matter.

 Kirtan Sunday, November 8th at 3-5pm at Gentle Strength Yoga in Mt Sinai (656-5357)
Kirtan is a call and response form of group chanting that is known to calm the mind, lift the spirits and raise vibrations!  Plus, its fun!!  Join me on harmonium, Dave on Guitar and Jim on percussion as we join together to feed the hungry among us!  $15 per person with an item to be donated to our local Food pantry (non-perishable food items, toiletries, and/or paper goods are always a good idea)

New Gentle Therapeutic Class Forming:  Calling all those who are more inclined to practice a very gentle/therapeutic form of yoga.  This class will be for those new to yoga or simply feel a gentler class is most appropriate due to physical, emotional or spiritual issues.  The class will consist of pranayama (breath practices), gentle yoga postures, philosophy and meditation.  I am looking at either 10 to 1115am on a Monday or a Wednesday.  This will be a session class to start (4 classes for $48).  We need at least four to sign up.  Let me know if you are interested, feel free to pass on the information to someone you feel could benefit.

By popular demand, I am blending essential oils for your enjoyment at home.  Many of you have asked me for the blends I offer during our classes, if you are interested go to my website and click on the Essential Oil blends tab.  I will have some available for purchase when you come to class or you can contact me to order.  This is my newest passion!!

Stay tuned for our next Reiki Circle & Restorative Yoga coming soon

Never give up. No matter what is going on. Never give up.

Be compassionate. Not just with your friends but with everyone. Be compassionate.

And I say again, Never give up. No matter what is going on around you. Never give up. Never give up.

-The Dalai Lama

Sometimes we feel as if we can’t go on. The mountain is too big, the task too daunting, the yoga pose too difficult, the situation too unmanageable.   It is always helpful to remember that even the most incredible tasks begin  by taking the next or first step, however small or insignificant that step may seem, it is a step forward non the less. Even if it means stepping back, collecting your thoughts, formulating a plan or just taking repose.  Keeping our minds on the action we need to take and letting the result rest in the hands of the universe, allows us to be in the present moment, even in difficult times.   You are enough, you have everything you need to move forward.  All you have to do is believe in yourself, let go of excuses and just begin.

Reminder Yoga Tonight – Thursday 7pm

wd

Greetings on the chilly first day of October.  Just a reminder that our evering class is now being held on Thursday nights at 7pm, and today is Thursday!  Let me know if you plan on coming if you haven’t already.

 

This Sunday we have a special guest musician, Dave Benedetto serenading us with his sweet guitar playing at Caruso’s for Yoga.  Sunday morning Yoga at Caruso’s courtyard will be an on going class where 20% of all proceeds will go to the Invited Inn Soup Kitchen in Rocky Point.  In the event of inclement weather,  we will move our yoga indoors to a peaceful space where we will be kept dry and warm.

 

Never hurts to check your messages or facebook in the event of cancellation of any classes before heading out.  .
