Yoga this Week – December 1, 2013

“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-Tsu
Greetings dear yoga students,
Are you having a good day?  If you are taking the time to read this email, chances are that you are having a “good” day.   It is very helpful to remember that at any given moment our entire world could be turned upside down and reality as we know it may vanish forever.  Examine how you define a “good” day.  Are you safe, healthy and of sound mind?  Is your perception clouded with some vision of what a good day is “supposed” to look like?     If something has disturbed your piece of mind, work at becoming empty.  Empty of the past, empty of expectations and empty of judgments.  In every moment, we have the opportunity to refine our minds, become present and open up to that grace that is always waiting to fill us up with its light.  We are vessels that are meant to channel the finest quality energy to ourselves and others, however, a channel needs to be clear in order for that energy to flow.  Empty, carve out space, clarify your thoughts and be open to this perfectly “good” day.

Yoga this Week – November 24, 2013

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.  ~ Albert Schweitzer

Dear Yoga Students,

Much gratitude now and always to all of you who show up week after week to your yoga mat.  Whether you realize it or not, your presence in class not only lights your own flame but also supports others that practice beside you on their path.  Sometimes all we need is a spark to rekindle our flame; a smile, a kind work, a new idea, a sweet heartfelt hug.  Never underestimate the power a small gesture can create.  May you and yours enjoy the small moments, those precious times together when we express our gratitude for each other and all we have in our lives.

Greetings dearest Yoga Students

Hope this email finds you well.  As you all must know by now, chanting is one of the most enjoyable parts of my practice.  It engages all parts of the self; body, mind and spirit.  Chanting and singing with ShaktiPath a good part of this weekend has left me today with a resonance of peace, joy and unexpected energy. It was such a pleasure to see familiar as well as new faces connecting to the power of music and chant.   Much gratitude for your support.  Many more chances in the near future to join in.

 

Tuning into vibrational energy has a meditative quality that connects you to others and yourself on a very deep level; a level that must be experienced to understand. Our physical yoga practice has this amazing quality as well.  As we move through the confines of our bodies on an energetic level we go into a deeper level of ourselves; we begin to experience the boundless, eternal light vibration that we are.  Be present to this vibrational energy as you walk through your days.  Feel it in your voice, in the wind, in another’s eyes and connect with compassion to all the beauty that is available to you in the small and not so obvious places.

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”
