Never give up.

You never know when what you are working towards is right around the corner.  Be willing to adjust, learn or go a different route but never give up.  Failure is so much a part of success and it is usually exactly what we need to push us in the right direction.  When we chant to Ganesha, the remover of obstacles, we are asking for our minds to be illuminated so that the obstacle we are experiencing lights our way down the path of least resistance, the path we are meant to be on.  Open your eyes, allow your failures to set you on a course and go; and remember the wise words of Yoda, “The master has failed more times than the beginner has ever tried”

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

images-12
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”.

“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!

Yoga this Week – Kirtan on Sunday & New Class Forming!!

**Scroll Down for important schedule updates**
“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-Tzu

Dearest Yoga Students

Hoping this email finds you enjoying the bright morning sunshine and aware of all that you have been given in your life.  The more we become empty, the more we become full.  When we give ourselves time to become quiet, stilling the inner chatter of our minds and our bodies, we can become receptive to our lives instead of trying to control the direction.  Try to carve out a little emptiness in your lives as the days become shorter.    If you give yourself the gift of quiet reflection; whether you come to yoga class, journal, sit in silent meditation or cuddle with a loved one, you will allow yourself to be filled with the love, light, energy and peace that is always there for the taking.  A vessel that is full has no room;  so open your doors and windows, de-clutter your inner house and make space for the things that truly matter.

 Kirtan Sunday, November 8th at 3-5pm at Gentle Strength Yoga in Mt Sinai (656-5357)
Kirtan is a call and response form of group chanting that is known to calm the mind, lift the spirits and raise vibrations!  Plus, its fun!!  Join me on harmonium, Dave on Guitar and Jim on percussion as we join together to feed the hungry among us!  $15 per person with an item to be donated to our local Food pantry (non-perishable food items, toiletries, and/or paper goods are always a good idea)

New Gentle Therapeutic Class Forming:  Calling all those who are more inclined to practice a very gentle/therapeutic form of yoga.  This class will be for those new to yoga or simply feel a gentler class is most appropriate due to physical, emotional or spiritual issues.  The class will consist of pranayama (breath practices), gentle yoga postures, philosophy and meditation.  I am looking at either 10 to 1115am on a Monday or a Wednesday.  This will be a session class to start (4 classes for $48).  We need at least four to sign up.  Let me know if you are interested, feel free to pass on the information to someone you feel could benefit.

By popular demand, I am blending essential oils for your enjoyment at home.  Many of you have asked me for the blends I offer during our classes, if you are interested go to my website and click on the Essential Oil blends tab.  I will have some available for purchase when you come to class or you can contact me to order.  This is my newest passion!!

Stay tuned for our next Reiki Circle & Restorative Yoga coming soon

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.

Greetings dearest Yoga Students,

 

Much gratitude to all who took part in our first Sunday Morning Yoga Class at Caruso’s Restaurant. The space was beautiful, the music by Joe Spina was inspiring and yoga was peacefully practiced.  We raised a sweet $200 to donate to The Invited Inn Soup Kitchen at Trinity Lutheran Church!  “Alone we can do so little, Together we can do so much!” said Helen Keller, and she was so right!.  Sunday Morning classes will be on-going at Caruso’s with the same pricing structure as our yoga room classes ($12 for one/$55 for five/$100 for ten (no one ever turned away).  Caruso’s will be offering a special lunch/brunch on Sundays after yoga.    We will also have fundraising classes every so often to give to those in need.

Yoga this Week – August 3, 2015

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality.

Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”

Lao Tzu

om on beach

Greetings dearest yoga students,

We are in the midst of changes, some that are natural like aging and children growing up.  Others are spontaneous like suddenly losing your job or winning the lottery.  We all feel anchored in what is familiar to us and are comforted in what we can count on, like an old favorite receipe or comfy chair.  However, whether we want change or not, it comes.  Sometimes slowly and sometimes like a tidal wave sweeping us off our feet.  The best we can do is “let reality be reality” and join in with the flow.  Allow yourself time to grieve the past if you need to but with all the compassion you can muster up, don’t resist change or try to control it. Allow the energy of acceptance to flow towards gratitude for all you are able to experience.  Like a beautiful flowing river, allow your life to flow and ebb and flow, using your precious energy to be a part of it all.

“Yoga is the practice of observing clearly, listening acutely and skillfully responding to the moment with all the compassion we can muster”

Donna Farhi

  2015-07-21 02.59.10

Greetings dear yoga students,

Thank you for your continued dedication to your practice for it is you that will make this world a better place.  By practicing the art of observing, listening and responding skillfully,  you not only bring health and right action to those around you,  but you also become a wonderful example of how a person can move through the world with integrity, kindness and love.  A beautiful student remarked to me that being in class felt like a “homecoming” to her.  Yoga is a homecoming; a homecoming and a connection to your body, your mind. your community and your true nature which has an amazing wellspring of intelligence, joy and compassion waiting just below the surface to shine!!
