The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood.

Greetings dear yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you well and enjoying the receptive energy of this winter season.  I love the term “disciplined nonconformists” that MLK so eloquently states are the “Hope of a secure and livable world”.      A life of discipline (Tapas in yogic terms) affords us the freedom to operate from our higher selves, confident even when we are going against cultural norms. When we hear our inner calling, it takes persistence and faith to have the courage to follow through with what we hear, even if those around us might raise an eyebrow or fear we are going in the wrong direction.  Be still, listen, be disciplined in your practices of ethical living in body, mind and spirit,  which is what yoga practice is all about.  Yoga is to become pure in all facets of our lives so we can act from that place of calm abiding, wisdom and love.  Yoga literally means to yoke, to be self controlled, to be disciplined so we can be the ones that  dare to step out into the light;  for the hope of a secure and livable world lies within us.

 ” 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”

  download (10)

 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.  As we near the end of another year, embrace this truth:   That loving, and being truly vulnerable in your life doesn’t always look nice and that truly living wholeheartedly means taking the risk that sometimes your heart will break; sometimes you will make a  mess.

 

Our Yoga practice helps us remember that we are perfect just the way we are and that our lives our beautiful as they are.   Within our practice we may fall down,  sweat,  and sometimes struggle just to bear the truth of our bodies and minds but when  we get back up again and   return to our mats, “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.

Vision Board Workshop – Tonight at 7pm – Still time to join in!

Co-Creating Your Life – A Vision Board Workshop

Wednesday, October 30th 7-9pm.

 –

“Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment.”

   

Enlightenment happens, not in some far away distant esoteric place, but in the everydayness of life.  Enlightenment is an appropriate response to your inner callings and a willingness to act from your highest, intuitive self.   A Vision Board is a collection of images, words, affirmations or drawings that serve as a spirit-led guide for discovering and acknowledging what your soul is yearning for.  The universe wants to support your efforts to live a life filled with joy, abundance, adventure and purpose.   It is within the effort of creating the Vision that brings clarity as well as focus to your intentions so you can begin to live your life by your own design, free of fear based judgments or cultural pressures.

This workshop will consist of a centering meditation, a simple writing exercise and creating our boards.  Each participant is asked to bring 3 to 5 magazines of random genres to be cut up and shared, a picture of yourself that projects joy and happiness, and a small journal or notebook.  All other supplies will be provided.

Cost is $20

Percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Invited Inn Soup Kitchen in Rocky Point to align our visions with the energy of service.

Please reserve your spot by contacting Amy Perri, ERYT500 at

 

Yoga this Week – October 19, 2013

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

                                             — Albert Einstein

Hari Om dearest yoga students,

Hoping this beautiful fall morning finds you in some form of gratitude for this gift of today.  The way of the yogi warrior is the way of the heart.  The intuitive mind is led by the heart.  Our yoga practice awakens a deeper awareness of our minds, bodies and spirits and it is in this awakening that we can begin to “feel” into our lives instead of “thinking” through our lives.  Although intellectual ability is often the first to be consulted to solve problems, create plans, or learn new abilities, it is truly the intuitive mind that will always lead you down the sacred path of the heart.

  Inside your heart are the yamas and niyamas.

The Five Yamas

  Ahimsa : nonviolence   Satya: truthfulness   Asteya: nonstealing   Brahmacharya: temperance   Aparigraha: noncovetousness

The Five Niyamas

Saucha: cleanliness  Santosha: contentment  Tapas: heat; austerities Svadhyaya: study of the sacred scriptures and of one’s self  Isvara pranidhana: surrender to God

To find the way, close your eyes, listen closely and find that light within you, that energy moving, that feeling tone that points the way.   We are naturally pure, go deeper, your intrinsic goodness will move you towards the most ethical, loving way. Without studying a single yoga sutra, we know inside ourselves the path.  Honor this gift, the sacred intuitive mind and allow your intellect to serve.  For this day, allow the words of Ghandi to resonate on a deep level;

“The Culture of the mind must be subservient to the heart”

Yoga this Week – October 13, 2013

 

The Goddess Sarasvati

Sara:  The one who gives the essence & Sva: of  our true Self

The Goddess Sarasvati is worshipped for her creativity, wisdom, purity and gentleness.   She is said to bestow eloquence, intelligence and artistic inspiration to all who meditate on her transcendental qualities.   Her calming peaceful presence reminds us of the great power of Shakti (the feminine energy that is said to be the catalyst of change and creation with love as the driving force) and the ultimate divine mother.  As this last day of Navrarti (the nine day festival celebrating the divine mother in all her forms) comes to a close, we honor Goddess Sarasvati  and call upon her to connect us to the essence of our own true, divine nature where all of these beautiful qualities have always, and will always exist.

“May the great river of Sarasvati overflow and grant us her grace”
