    “Shall I tell you what I find beautiful about you?  You are at your very best when things are worst”  Starman

download (1)

Utkatasana (chair pose)  exemplifies the amazing ability of the human spirit to rise up and find the strength, grace and power we didn’t even know we had.  We have all had experiences  where   the bottom seems to fall out from underneath our life; a devastating phone call comes or some unexpected turn of events sends life into a tailspin.   It is at precisely these times, when help seems to come out of nowhere; people organize themselves to help, families let go of their differences to work together for the common goal, friends come from all directions.  It is at our worst,  that we become our very best.

If you have a moment today, take chair pose for a few breaths.  Breathe into the grounding at your feet, feel how your heart lifts and your hands reach up toward the sky.  Embodying this powerful pose allows us to experience our own power and also the source of power around us that enables us to lift ourselves  up and bask in the light and love that is always there.  Thich Nhat Hahn says “No Mud, No Lotus” which means that we must go through the dark, the struggles, the sticky stuff to reveal our true beauty.   In the depths of the winter, dig deep and reach high.  Spring is surely on its way and  we await its coming with joy, strength and resolve.

Yoga this Week – January 18, 2015

Greetings dear Yoga students,

 

Martin Luther King, Jr. describes Ishvara Pranidhana perfectly in the above quotation.  ; having Faith and surrendering to the process even when you don’t know where it will lead you.  The fact is we really never have a guarantee that our plans will work out.  I have experienced many times when fear led me to overthink, manipulate, and try to control every part of a situation,  only to wake up to the fact that all I had to do was relax, trust and be open to the unfolding, which many times was more wonderful than I could have ever imagined!  The yogic  niyama, Ishvara Pranidhana calls us to let go and trust that there is a divine plan working along side you.  Let go of results, trust the process and even when you don’t know where you are going, lift your foot and take that first step!

Greetings Dear Yoga Students,
We all know that change is inevitable, but yet we still long to cling to the known, the familiar, the comfortable.  George Harrison once said, “If we aren’t changing, we aren’t growing”.  Everything that grows must change.  It is just as important to our well being to accept and embrace change as it is to breathe.  Enjoy the moments of your day, embrace all that is in your life with enthusiasm knowing that you will never pass through this day again.  Be open to the shifting landscapes, the rise and fall of emotions, the ebb and flow of energy.  When the waves of change seem to be harsh and the seas are rough around you, remember that you are part of an amazing, vast ocean of movement through which you are inevitably being molded, changed and led in the direction of your divine destiny.

Yoga this Week – September 21, 2014

Aparigraha
greedlessness, non-attachment

The yogi feels that the collection or hoarding of things implies a lack of faith in God and in himself to provide for the future….By the observance of aparigraha, the yogi makes his life as simple as possible and trains his mind not to feel the loss or the lack of anything. Then everything he really needs will come to him by itself at the proper time.”

Iyengar

om in the lotus

Hari Om Dear Yoga Students,

As this Fall draws us inward I wish for your eyes to see all the abundance that you already possess right now in this moment in this time in your life. One beautiful morning this past week I walked down to the shore, a little less than a mile from my house and  was embraced by the serene beauty  all around me. It caused me to stop and I experienced a moment that seemed to have transformed into one of those magical moments suspended in time. I paused, connected to my breath, did some simple yoga postures and sat on a piece of wood to silently sit in meditation.. As the rhythmic sound of the waves made their way into my mind and the gentle warm breeze caressed my skin, I felt so completely connected to all that was around me. The feeling of abundance and gratitude seemed to encapsulate my entire being. If we take even a moment to connect with all that is precious and dear to us in our lives right now, we allow the divine light to shine into our hearts. A moment like this can change your entire day from one that is ordinary to one that is full of miracles and we seem to lack nothing.

Yoga this Week – September 14, 2014

The Perfect Cup
 
Its time to see the flaws of myself and stop being alarmed
It’s time for me to halt my drive for perfection and to accept my blemishes
 
It’s time for me to receive slowly evolving growth;
the kind that comes in God’s own good time
and does not heed to my panicky pushing.
 
It’s time for me to embrace my humaness and love my incompleteness.
It’s time for me to cherish the unwanted,
to welcome the unknown,
to treasure the unfulfilled
 
If I wait untill I am perfect,
I will always be unsatified and ungrateful
 
If I wait until all the flaws,
chips and cracks disappear
I will be the cup that sits on the shelf and is never used
Greetings dearest yoga students,
Hope this email finds you embracing this day with all its so called “imperfections”.  The sooner we move into acceptance and embrace who we are in the moment and how our life is in the present, the sooner we will allow peace to flow within us. Think of the beauty of a tree, a landscape, an old picture or a favorite pair of worn out jeans; it is the imperfections that make them beautiful, interesting and alive.  By embracing our humaness we also acknowledge our divinity.  It is through this human experience that we come to know the sacred in life.   Do not wait, cease this day and open up to the ways in which you can be used to better the lives of those around you in any small way.  When you learn to love the imperfections in yourself, you unconciously give others the permission to accept and love themselves just as they are.  In your imperfections you are incredibly perfect and exactly who you are meant to be!
