Yoga this Week – November 12, 2017

Image may contain: text

Dearest Yoga Students,

Many changes continue to take place in all of our lives.  Some welcome and some not so welcome, however, I have found they always do lead to an opening, a shift that takes shape and becomes something new and wonderful to explore.  Our yoga practice helps us to learn to meet changes head on with steadiness and ease.  We can take a breath, hold our pose with tenderness and watch the changes take place.  Yoga teaches us that our lives, our bodies  and our minds are malleable, shapeable and that we are never stuck.  We can grow, adapt and become more courageous than we ever thought we could when we let go of fear and walk through that doorway of change.

Dear Yoga Students,

Hoping this chilly day finds you safe, warm and grateful. Every time you come to your mat and spend time with yourself you are investing in your health and well being. The season is upon us, it is time to give to yourself so you can give your best to others!  Remember to put your name in the box everytime you make the effort to come to class, the more times your name is in the box, the more chances you have to win that Private Session with me (to do with what you like) and the more vitality, calm and peace you will feel.

Greetings Dear Friends,

Hoping this email finds you well rested and at peace within your life.  Sometimes we feel enveloped in darkness and are searching for light and sometimes we are the light for others.  We must remember that we are all ordinary people that have the potential to serve in extraordinary ways.  Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Martin L King, and many, countless others,  were merely ordinary people who responded to a call much greater than themselves.  “There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter “.  Allow the beautiful lights of the holiday season to remind you every moment that this powerful healing spirit is available to you always.

“You can look at every single problem in your life as an opportunity for some greater benefit;

you stay alert to opportunities by being grounded in the wisdom of uncertain,

so when your preparedness meets opportunity,  the solution will spontaneous appear.” 

Deepak Chopra

  images (19)

Dear yoga Students,

My wish for you on this beautiful Monday morning is that you find yourself feeling grounded in in the wisdom of uncertainly surrounding yourself in peace.   The wisdom of uncertainty is based in the reality that we are merely floating through space and time, traveling to  unknown shores.   It is relinquishing our perceived control and going with the flow of our lives, open to possibility at all times.  When we get stuck in trying to control, we become attached to outcomes and instead of being open to possibilities, we become closed and miss the very solution that is presenting itself.  Grounding yourself in the wisdom of uncertainty, allows you to be free to explore, create and be spontaneous.  These are the true gifts of being alive.

 Whether you are trying to balance in a yoga pose, sit on your meditation cushion, or enjoying a holiday if your trying to achieve perfection, it will only elude you,  create judgments, increase stress and take you away from the very energy you desire.  Instead breathe into the possibly of just being and see what arisises.   Stay open, flow and float, enjoy the moment and find the serenity and excitement  that comes from resting in the field of uncertainty.

Bring a friend to Yoga and receive a Lavender Oil Roll to Go!

“In this lovely season when the dance of surrender is obvious, we find large spaces left where something beautiful once lived. As one by one the leaves let go, a precious emptiness appears in the trees.  The naked beauty of the branches can be seen; the birds’ abandoned nests become visible.  The new spaces of emptiness reveal mountain ridges.  At night if you stand beneath a tree and gaze upward, stars now peer through the branches.  This is an important autumn lesson—when certain things fall away, there are other things that can be seen more clearly.  The same truth can be celebrated in our personal lives”

                                        Excerpt from “The Circle of Life” by Joyce Rupp & Macrina Wiederkehr

circle_of_life_by_lionsroar787-d6p0cmu

 

With the grace of a tree letting go of her leaves with all her majesty and beauty, we learn to let go, making peace with the transitions in our lives. We face the stark reality that nothing lasts forever.  Things ebb and flow, autumn teaches us to honor what is dying, changing and urges us to embrace the fact that everything is always moving and flowing into something new, even if we are standing still.  Chanting one of my favorite mantras yesterday with a group of open, like-minded people, (sa ta na ma – wha hey guru) reminded me to breathe and embrace these inevitable changes.   The circle of life, death, rebirth and infinity tells us that all endings eventually become beginnings and that the walk through the hallway from a door that has closed behind us maybe dark, maybe challenging, but always leads to yet another opening, another awakening or a new perspective.  Go outside and enjoy the spaces in the trees where now the light comes in.  Feel the sun on your face as you chant:  SA TA NA MA – WHA HEY GURU and allow your life to flow.

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.
