Yoga this Week – March 18, 2018

The ego is a monkey catapulting though the jungle;

Totally fascinated by the realm of the senses,

  it swings from one desire to the next,

  one conflict to the next,

  one self-centered idea to the next.

If you threaten it, it actually fears for its life.

Let this monkey go.

Let the senses go.

Let desired go.

Let conflicts go.

Let ideas go.

Let the fiction of life and death go.

Just remain in the center, watching.

Then forget that you are there.

Hua Hu Ching: Ten

Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,

In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Sutra 1:2 gives us the true meaning of yoga practice:  To still the every moving fluctuations of the mind.  The “Chitta” is like the lens we see the world through.     Our Chitta is colored, or clouded, by the vritti’s;  the things we have been taught, the society we live in, the family we grew up with and the experiences that have made an impression on us as we grow.  These perceptions can keep our mind in constant fluctuation (vritti) and  block our awareness of our higher consciousness (Buddhi) or ability to discern, intuit and understand deeper meanings in our lives.

Yoga – to Unite    Chitta – Consciousness     Vritti – Fluctuations    Nirodhah – Quieting of

The practice of yoga is to clear  our lenses (Chitta’s)  so that we see things as they really are, clear of personal attachment to outcomes, beliefs and misconceptions.  This is the goal of yoga. this is why we practice.  To clear our bodies and minds of habitual patterns so we can open up to what is truly important and true in our lives.  So we can open up to the wisdom of our higher self that is always looking out for our good and the good of all.

 Greetings dear yoga students,

Yoga puts us in touch with that part of ourselves that remembers what we have forgotten;  that we are whole, we are strong, that we can endure and we can meet our lives with grace, steadfastness, integrity and joy.  Once we touch this inner realm, we will never be the same again!

Yoga this Week – April 24, 2017

What we’re trying to do in yoga is to create a union, and so to deepen a yoga pose is to actually increase the union of the pose, not necessarily put your leg around your head.

~Rodney Yee

See full size image

Each time we come to our mats, we have a chance to explore interconnection. We begin with our breath and move into our bodies, but it doesn’t stop there. As we create connection with a pose, we adjust, consider, explore, become present and breathe into the experience. We soften into the edges of the pose and watch them dissolve as we flow moment to moment; this might very well lead you to “put your leg around your head”  Integration, alignment and breath leads you deeper into your body, into the mystery.    As you move into this day, feel into the energy around you. Integrate, align and breath within the moments and see if you can increase the most important connection of all; the present.

“To have a sacred place…is an absolute necessity for anybody today.  You must have a room (or corner of a room) …, where you can simply bring forth what you are and what you might be.  This is a place of creative incubation.  At first you may find that nothing happens there, but if you have a sacred place and use it, something (wonderful) eventually will happen”
                                          Joseph Campbell
imagesss - Copy
Let’s face it, we could all use a week long retreat away from all of our demands and responsibilities but that is not always possible.  You can, however, learn to create that sacred space and retreat to it whenever you feel inclined.  Also, carving out a certain amount of time at a specific time of day can afford you the structure and discipline to find that quiet, alone time we all crave.  Whether it be 10 minutes sitting in quiet contemplation or an hour of gentle stretching, try creating a space of your own somewhere in your home.  Even if it is just a corner where you place a candle, journal or some other meaningful reminders.  Once you take the time to make this simple sacred space, you will soon wonder how you ever did without it.

quote-print-on-canvas_14955-1

Good Morning Dear Yoga Students,

Abundance is  always within in us.  Be still for a moment and just listen; see if you can tune in and feel all of that energy. Abundance is not necessarily what we have or what we achieve but a feeling of deep satisfaction and meaning in the everyday moments.  Notice when you measure your “abundance” from your ego self; based on what others are doing, what you have or what you do. True, lasting abundance is actually what is coming from you, not what is coming TO you.  Your dharma, or life’s purpose is how you use  your unique talents to serve others with an effortless passion, generosity and joy.  Abundance is not something we acquire.  It is something we tune into.  When you tap into this inner abundance you will know it, and others will know it because it will naturally become a flowing stream pouring into everything you  touch.
