Yoga this Week – January 7, 2012

Satya – To seek and honor the truth in yourself, others and the world

(Sat-Truth + Ya-that which is of the essence)

“Probably the hardest form of this practice [commitment to satya] is being true to our own heart and inner destiny. Confusion and mistrust of our inner values can make it difficult to know the nature of our heart’s desire, but even when we become clear enough to recognize what truth means for us, we may lack the courage and conviction to live our truth. Following what we know to be essential for our growth may mean leaving unhealthy relationships or jobs and taking risks that jeopardize our own comfortable position. It may mean making choices that are not supported by consensual reality or ratified by the outer culture. The truth is rarely convenient. One way we can know we are living the truth is that while our choices may not be easy, at the end of the day we feel at peace with ourselves”

Donna Fhari

Greetings Dear Yoga Students,

Hope this email finds you well, embracing the truth of your life whatever is put before you at this moment. I hope you enjoyed practicing ahimsa (non-violence) and that you continue to do so as the year moves forward for Ahimsa is at the core of all yogic practices.
We now come to our second out of five yamas: Satya (truthfullness) which requires clear seeing, courage and steadfastness. Try and be aware of situations in which you tend to color or deny the truth with yourself or others. Be aware without judgement if you think another is bending what you believe to be the truth taking into consideration that we only see the world through our own individual lense. Practing satya is having the courage and faith to first clear your own lense and then act on what you see with a compassionate heart.

Yoga this Week November 6, 2011

Keep Coming Back
 
Keep coming back to your breath
Keep coming back to your body
Keep coming back to who you really are.
 
No matter what life puts before you, keep coming back to all the beauty around you, to all the love inside you, to what really matters.  Even if you stray a thousand and one times, keep coming back to the truth of who you really are.  Keep coming back to the eternal, internal essence of you.  Keep coming back to what you know to be true; that the compassion you hold in your heart is meant as much for you as for every living being.  Keep coming back to all the love inside you.
 
Keep Coming Back

“The most effective way to reduce health costs is to reduce demand,
and the easiest way to do that is by Self-Care.”

Hari Om dear yoga students,
 
Taking time for yourself, right here and now, is what will be most important to your physical, mental and spiritual future.  You most likely have heard many people (or yourself) proclaim “I don’t have the time to take care of myself…I’m just too busy with other demands to fit it in”.  This is truly an ironic statement.  The way I see it is that if we do not find the time for self care today, we will certainly be forced into taking the time later to nurse ourselves back to health (body, mind or spirit) in the future.  So in this day that we call the present, take any amount of time you can spare and do something nurturing for yourself.  Whatever is most appropriate for you today; read something spiritual, funny or uplifting, bundle up and take a walk, do some yoga, make a healthy meal,  take a hot bath or simply slow down the pace and practice being present.  Build up some self-care in the bank of your life and watch how your investment grows, rospers and spills on to everyone in your life.

 I will be taking my own advice this week as I travel across the country to Esalen at Big Sur in California to attend a five-day yoga retreat.  My hope is to release, renew and bring some interesting techniques back to all of you!! 
 
 
Have a wonderful self-nurturing week!!

Verse 15  

The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
Their wisdom was unfathomable.
There is no way to describe it;
all we can describe is their appearance.
They were careful as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
Courteous as a guest.
Fluid as melting ice.
Shapable as a block of wood.
Receptive as a valley.
Clear as a glass of water.Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?

The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment.
Not seeking, not expecting,
she is present, and can welcome all things

 
 
Good Morning dearest yoga students,
 
This verse from the Tao Te Ching challenges us to live an unhurried life.  To be careful, alert, courteous, fluid, shapable, receptive and clear.  It asks us to be present and aware of our actions and reactions but to be open to what the flow of life is offering us.  To “remain unmoving till the right action arises” is not easy by any means.  Our media driven society is often targeting our fears and prompts us to do more, be more, work harder in order to acheive, be fullfilled, be happy.  The Tao offers us another way.  To become part of the flow of life, not to be stagnant or uninvolved, but to be still enough so that life simply is living moment to moment, letting go of past and future to find our own calm center.
 
 
When we work to become empty of expectation,  life presents us with the opportunities we need; resources magically appear,  ideas become realities and coincidences become miracles not by paniky pushing, but by becoming still enough so that you flow with the tide of life’s events.  Our dreams and desires rarely materialize exactly how and when we plan but if we open to all things that our life presents, one day we wake up and we are living our dreams.  All we have ever hoped for is right there in front of us.  Try and get quiet for a few minutes right now and meditate on all the things the divine plan has brought into your life.  Allow peace and serentity to flow in with your breath and let go of striving and expectation as you exhale. Let your entire being rest in the light of gratitude for everything that is flowing in and through you on this day feeling as “receptive as a valley and clear as a glass of water”.
