Yoga this Week – October 6, 2019

Yoga gets the energy body moving, and the energy body is the source of creativity. When we take new and expansive shapes with the body we are influenced to take new and expansive shapes with the mind. — Anne Cushman

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

Dearest yoga students,
 Step outside your door and take in all the amazing abundance of the natural world.  We can learn so much from natures rhythms as we allow her to nurture, sooth and remind us we are all part of the same whole.  I get a deep sense of comfort as I watch the birds fly back and forth from tree to tree.   They have the freedom and joy many of us long for.   The many varieties, sizes and colors interact and co-exist in harmony with each other and the world around them, adjusting from season to season with the ability to simply sing after a storm.   Take time to become aware of how the birds, the trees, the water, the wind are orchestrating a beautiful symphony all around you. Try to look up often, walk barefoot to experience the earth,  and enjoy the breeze as it caresses your skin.   Remind yourself you are as free as the birds in the air to sing your unique song in order to  make the world a better place.
“A bird does not sing because it has the answer.  It sings because it has a song.” Chinese Proverb

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.

Chanting (or simply being present and listening) connects us not only to each other as community but is said to call down powerful spiritual energy to connect us to a power beyond this world. Chanting is healing, uplifting and meditative. No vocal or chanting experience necessary. All are welcome!! Let go of your inhibitions and tap into the divine flow of sacred Chant!

Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, Om!!!

“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.
