Yoga this Week – January 28, 2018

“Life is a Learning Curve” is the quote my 19 year old snowboarding, drumming, stay-up-all-niter college freshman decided to get tattooed on his inner forearm next to the autism puzzle piece in honor of his older brothers journey navigating life on the spectrum.

Image may contain: one or more people and closeup

These days we have a habit of saying that quote often when we come up against something new, hard, difficult, exciting or confusing. Life IS a learning curve. Do we ever stop learning? Transitions, pain, sorrow, winning, defeat, even success all have a learning curve at their core and what make up a growing life.  After all, wouldn’t the drive just be a tedious ride if all the roads were straight? It really are those curves that drive us forward, empowering and creating empathy, compassion and resilience as we tackle each one.   Like waves on the ocean the learning will keep rolling in. Some of the waves will be easy,  rolling gently and slowly onto the shore and some will crash us right from behind and slam us down on our backs. It’s all a learning, a moving forward, through and back and forth again.   Whenever you hear that inner critic or that debilitating fear rise up” that tells you “you can’t handle this” try and repeat the mantra “Life is a Learning Curve” ; tattoo it on your arm if you need to and remind yourself you are not supposed to have all the answers and that learning is gives your life meaning your your heart a chance soar.

Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart. ~
                                               Marcus Aelius Aurelius

Greetings dear yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you fostering a sense of grateful anticipation for the day and week ahead.  Acceptance of life circumstances does not mean to give in, give up or throw in the towel.  Acceptance is looking at what fate has brought to your door, examining the facts with an open heart and clear mind and then from deep within gather the courage to  do what you need or do – which in some instances is the courage to do absolutely nothing.  Whenever we are at odds with something, feel “off-kilter” or are experiencing anxiety, it usually can be traced back to our inability to accept what is happening in the present moment.  The moment we begin to trade our expectations in for acceptance, we experience a shift in perspective and sometimes, as if miraculously,   the limits begin to fade or change shape..  Acceptance enables us enjoy the senery of our lives the way it is, even if it is not what we expected.  So dive in to the present moment of your life today and meditate on the areas that you meet with resistance;  breathe a compassionate breath, bless your circumstances, love the people who join you on your journey with all your heart and find the peace and serenity that comes with true acceptance.

“What’s Done is Done”
Shakespeare
Greetings Dearest Yoga Students,
Do not allow yourself to get stuck in the past.  What has happened is already gone.  Like the wake of a boat, it is behind you and does not have to define or determine the direction you will take.  Let go and allow what has happened to shape your future on its own.  Everything that has happened has led you to this moment.    You cannot change the past, you can look and learn but in the end you must let go and set your sights on the future.  Although the future is there wide open for anyone to change, we have a tendency to hang on to the unfulfilling wish to change the past and live with the mantra, “If only”… this simply is wasted energy.  What’s done is done…. direct your energy to the future: meditate the present,  make plans, set intentions, transform your intentions into actions and let go of anything holding you back from creating the life you were meant to live.
