Yoga this Week – September 7, 2020

“It is the wilderness in
the mind, the desert wastes in the heart through which one wanders lost and a stranger. When one is a
stranger to oneself then one is estranged from others too. If one is out of touch with oneself, then one
cannot touch others.” 
 Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea

Greetings Dearest Friends,

The need for solitude and time to pursue creative endeavors is so very important to the journey inward, to discover, befriend and cultivate your relationship to yourself.  This is also key  in the practice of  accepting and embracing changes in relationships, in life’s circumstances and in the world at large.  When we are intimate with our inner being, we can find the grounding, gratitude and joy within that we crave to find healing and wholeness which enables us to accept instead of resist life’s circumstances with grace.  So this Labor Day, give yourself some time and space to get in touch with you.  Be  with yourself without placing any demands or lofty outcomes.  Let go of having to accomplish and just allow your inner child to play, relax and just be.

Yoga this Week-April 19, 2020

Faith, Courage and Strength.  What better qualities to embrace right now as we stand at the door of mystery, uncertain of how things will be as days turn into weeks and weeks into months.  Let’s face it,  none of us have ever been here before so we are learning new ways of being.   Teaching virtually has been challenging and one of my greatest joys during this time.  Having some semblance of normalcy by heading down to the yoga room and teaching is basically helping to keep me sane.  I hope to see you this week.  If you have any questions about how to sign in, contact me and I will walk you through it.  Be well.   Embrace the Present and know I am sending love and hugs!

Yoga this Week – January 6, 2019

 

Happy New Year dear Yoga Students,

We had a wonderful time at the Kirtan last Friday night and I was amazed how free and happy I felt the next day!  The energy has stayed with me all weekend.  I was particularly taken with the moment we chanted to “our struggles” during Hari Om Tat Sat which translates as we bow to the truth of all that is sacred.  Our struggles are part of our sacred path.  Just like moving into the darkness from Autumn Equinox to Winter Solstice, it is part of the sacred cycle of our lives to move in and out and forward and back again.  Hopefully we learn to grow,  to leave behind what doesn’t serve us, take with us the lessons and honor the journey.  Here we are, beautiful yogi’s, at the start of a brand new year.  May you all and all beings find peace within your darkness and may we all honor the ever increasing light together as we travel this life together.

“My beloved child, break your heart no longer.
Each time you judge yourself, you break your own heart.
You stop feeding on the love which is the wellspring of your vitality.
The time has come.

Your time.  To celebrate.

And to see the goodness that you are.
You my child, are divine. You are pure. You are sublimely free.
You are God in disguise. And you are always perfectly safe.
Do not fight the dark. Just turn on the light.
Let go, And breathe into the goodness that you are.”

Swami Kripalvanandaji

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,

May Peace, Contentment and Joy fill your heart and soul this entire week and beyond!  Thank you sooo much for being part of our wonderful yoga community.  The Winter Solstice Sangha was so  much fun and the connection I see between you all fills me with such happiness.  After all, what truly is the most important thing in our lives?  From my vantage point it is how we touch the lives around us.  Much gratitude to you for touching my heart so deeply and with such fun, dedication and love.

Yoga this Week – November 11, 2018

“Through practice, I’ve come to see that the deepest source of my misery is not wanting things to be the way they are. Not wanting myself to be the way I am. Not wanting the world to be the way it is. Not wanting others to be the way they are. Whenever I’m suffering, I find this ‘war with reality’ to be at the heart of the problem.”

                                                           Stephen Cope

Focus on being at peace with your reality, whatever that might mean to you.  The war within quiets when you cultivate santosha – contentment; allow yourself to bloom wherever you are planted today and within whatever circumstances life finds you.
