Yoga this Week – May 20,2018

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.
                                                          Doug Coupland

Greetings dear yoga students,

I have been so enamored by all the birds are visiting my feeder this year.  So many varieties, sizes, shapes and colors fill my vision with vibrancy and joy.  I often think about the way they live.  So simply in tune with each other and nature.  They are a constant reminder,  as I sit at my computer  watching them swoop and land and soar,   not to take life so seriously. Much like my time on my yoga mat, observing them reminds me to trust, let go and fly into the moments of my life with purpose, freedom and joy. Birds are truly a miracle to behold, they prove to us that there is a finer state of being we can strive to attain and that state of being is yoga.

Yoga this Week – October 10, 2016

The important thing is to be awake now, to feel the transparency, to feel the universal shining through the individual, and then to allow life to express itself though us.

                 Rolf Gates

Set aside some time to  sit silently and connect to your breath.  Close your eyes and begin listening to sounds around you.  Allow the air of your breath to pass through you with clarity.   Let go of your need to control your outer circumstances, feel the fluidity and transparency of life.  We are not solid; we are light, joy, love and bliss anytime we make the decision to connect to that universal energy and allow “life to express itself through us”.

Greetings Dearest Yoga Students,

Have faith in your practice and the ability of your yoga to calm, nurture, enliven and release.  When we move our panic energy our practice through breath work, postures, chanting, and/or meditation we effect not only our physical bodies, but our emotional bodies as well.  Moving prana (life force energy) within ourselves allows us to be more open, more willing, more free to connect to that universal prana that is available for the taking and connects us to all beings everywhere.  In essence, it allows us to show up for ourselves and for others in our life.  Trust your yoga to move through you, all you have to do is show up and be present.  Your Yoga mat will catch you if you fall.

heart chak

A Blessed Mother’s Day to all!  I hope you enjoyed your day as much as I have.  Remember that although cultural holidays are “supposed” to be happy and joyful, they often also come with a fair amount of sadness or grief for what used to be, what we hoped would be or for who we have lost along the way.  Allow yourself to feel your feelings as much as possible.  Happiness and Sorrow are both different ends of the same stick.  Have compassion and gratitude for those around you as we honor the great mothers that surround us as well as inside of us.

May you find peace and serenity in knowing you are loved!!

” The witnessing soul is like the sky. The birds fly in the sky but they don’t leave any footprints….[The] man who is awakened lives in such a way that he leaves no footprints…. He never looks ahead, he never looks back,  he lives in the moment.”

Yoga this Week – October 19, 2014

Await the auspicious moment when one will be free from pleasure and pain, desire and a sense of worldly gain–since, attention should be on the perfection of means and not the end, which is bound to follow if the means are perfected.  To accomplish this one should scrupulously observe all aspect of sadacara 
(The Yamas which are right conduct — non-violence, truthfullness, non-stealing, moderation and non-greed)

 Avalon Yoga Hike
Be gentle with yourself and others as you strive to walk this road less traveled remembering that we truly cannot become enlightened beings by simply sitting on a meditation cushion, doing yoga poses or reading spiritual material;  WE MUST ADHERE TO AN ETHICAL PRACTICE if we are to move forward in our journey back home to our true selves and do the work we were meant to do in this lifetime. When our intention is pure, our paths will become illuminated like moonlight on a dark night and others will follow your example. Allow yourself to take risks, be willing to be vulnerable;  there is a song in your heart waiting to be sung and in walking the true and right path you will find inside you the ability to give yourself fully to your unique, beautiful style of music that lives inside your soul.
