Yoga tomorrow morning 9am

Tomorrow looks like a beautiful morning for our 9am practice. Reminder that my phone is broken and I’m not up and running yet with my new one. If you need to get a hold of me email me or respond to this post. You could also message me on Facebook or Instagram. So many choices but no texting. I’ll let you know when I have my phone back and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow on the lawn or on zoom.

peace

detachment

   “Detachment is simply letting go of all you hold fast to in your mind. It doesn’t actually mean losing anything, simply changing your relationship with the things in your life today. The greatest pleasure for every soul comes as a result of choosing detachment. Why? Because attachment is a form of slavery that takes place in our own minds. And the result of detachment? Real freedom”

Raga:  The Klesha of Attachment
 
Raga is translated at attachment and attachment causes suffering when we try to hang on to things that are impermanent or chase after a a certain experience that caused us pleasure.  Like all the kleshas, or afflictions, at their core lies confusion of what is permanent and impermanent, real and unreal and largely based in fear.  Unhealthy attachment is born of fear of not getting what we want, fear of losing what we have, fear of letting go.  
 
The opposite of fear is faith.  So to release the grip of Raga we need to have faith and a deep understanding that the the comings and goings of all we love and find comfort in are a natural part of the cycle of life; letting go allows you to access the peace of mind you seek.  When we make decisions from a truly detached place; from a place of calm abiding, wisdom and love, we set the inner spirit free to move us toward all that is good, true, and right in our lives.   Letting go of attachments to how things should be, of what we need to be whole, happy human beings,  allow our lives to be a  journey of wonder, gratitude and contentment.

Yoga and Kayaking Adventure – Friday August 13th at 1pm (Rain Date August 14th) launching out of Setauket Harbor. $30 per person.   Spots limited.  Contact me to sign up.  Details to follow.  

 Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearingin the dense forest
of your life and wait there patiently, until the song
that is your life falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know how to give yourself
to this world so worthy of rescue.

Yoga on Zoom this morning at 9 a.m.

Good morning friends I had

I was going to begin to have a few students in the yoga room and the weather wasn’t cooperating. However the cul-de-sac is filled with water and looks like a lake so parking would be horrendous. Yoga will be on Zoom only this morning. If you’d like to attend click on the link and register. Stay dry stay safe it looks crazy out there.

Namaste

Amy

Yoga this week – June 27, 2021

“I understood that the attachment to myself and my image … was actually taking me away from my Self, away from this wonderful opportunity to just sit, just breathe….When under the sway of this obsession, my mind’s attention was always in the fantasized future, or the idealized or devalued past – never present to the reality of the moment.” ― Stephen Cope

Our Ego is a complicated part of our psyche.  On one hand it’s 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 and prompts us to be productive and presentable; to suit up and show up. These are all good things to aspire to.   On the other hand, our ego can work subtly, powerfully and insidiously to take us out of the present moment with its insatiable appetite for validation.  Lost in the throes of egoism (Asmita), we believe our self-worth relies on temporal things;  what we do, accomplish, have,  what we look like, or any other misidentification with the true self that inevitably causes great, unnecessary suffering (dukha) because the ego is never satisfied. 

Yogic practices,(self control, self study, asana, pranayama and meditation), when done with patience over time, give us the courage to resist the ego’s call by yoking us to the present moment where our authentic, eternal self lives    In short, by committing to this path we keep our ego in check because all of these practices create inner tranquility and equanimity, we stay in the stream of goodness and out of self-seeking, ego driven rewards.

Please only register on Zoom if you plan on streaming from home at least 30 minutes prior to class start.  If attending in person, no need to register.
