Yoga this Week August 21, 2011

Greetings dearest yoga students,
 
Hope you are enjoying this summer day and this email finds you well.
 
 
“To have a sacred place…is an absolute necessity for anybody today.  You must have a room (or corner of a room) …, where you can simply bring forth what you are and what you might be.  This is a place of creative incubation.  At first you may find that nothing happens there, but if you have a sacred place and use it, something (wonderful) eventually will happen”
                                          Joseph Campbell
 
Let’s face it, we could all use a week long retreat away from all of our demands and responsibilities but that is not always possible.  You can, however, learn to create that sacred space and retreat to it whenever you feel inclined.  Also carving out a certain amount of time at a specific time of day will give you the structure and discipline to find that quiet, alone time we all crave.  Whether it be 10 minutes sitting in quiet contemplation or an hour of gentle stretching, try creating a space of your own somewhere in your home.  Even if it is just a corner where you place a candle, journal or some other meaningful reminders.  Once you take the time to make this simple sacred space, you will soon wonder how you ever did without it.

Yoga this Week July 31, 2011

**Karma Beach Yoga Fundraiser – Aug 21st – Cedar Beach – Flyer Attached**

 

“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

 

 

Greetings dear yoga students,

 

Welcome to another glorious day. As you soak in the sunshine that is pouring down fromt the sky, think about something you may be “at war” with in your own life.  Living life on life’s terms is not an endeavor for the faint hearted.  As humans, we seem to always want to fix things or create fantasies and repeat mantras like; “if only things were different then I could be happy”.  True inner contentment only comes from within.  We must make the decision to be happy now.  Now is all we have.  This moment, this day, this family, this  body, this home, this job,  this stretch of 24 hours to live our life.  Cultivate acceptance with whatever or whoever is in your life today.  Be the one that brings serenity to your interactions and act with your heart on situations that seem to baffle you.  Try and do more reflection that reaction and you may find, things are exactly as they should be.  Relax, let go and focus today on being at peace with reality.  The war within quiets when you cultivate Santosha – contentment; allow yourself to bloom wherever you are planted, within whatever circumstances life finds you.

June 25, 2011 Yoga this Week

“Don’t ask what the world needs.  Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.  Because what the world needs is people who have come alive”

                                                      Howard Thurman
 
 
The practice of yoga asks us to come alive.  It coaxes us from the unreal to the real, clearing away the clutter from our minds and bodies enveloping us in the present moment.  Feel into what makes you come alive today.  What gives you butterflies in your core, what makes you tickle with delight?  Allow the feeling of “aliveness” to stay with you so you can share your excitement with others. 
Even if we are dealing with something not very pleasurable or even difficult today we can still work to be “alive”  by connecting to doing the best we can do.  Releasing your avidya (spiritual ignorance) and realizing what truly is important can also bring you to a state of aliveness.  Cultivating patience, compassion, tolerance and love in every moment not only brings about a state of inner peace but also helps cultivate those qualities around you helping to establish an outer environment of serenity for others.  We cannot change what happens around us but we certainly can change our reaction to it. 
Breathe and embrace your aliveness today and find the things that bring you closer to a state of happiness, grace and joy; you owe it to yourself and the world to be the best you can be.

June 18, 2011 Weekly Message and Beach Yoga

He didn’t tell me how to live;
he lived, and let me watch him do it. 
~Clarence Budington Kelland

 

Have a Happy Father’s Day!!
 
Good Morning Dearest Yoga Students,
 
Hope this morning fills your heart as you awake to yet another amazing day.    Whatever circumstances surround you today, allow gratitude to replace any judgment you may have surrounding either your own fathering or the fathers in your life.  We are all walking this path together and the struggles of another are no different then your own; their decisions are no easier made.  Be comforted in knowing we are all doing the best we can at any given moment.  Offer your unconditional love whenever you can and connect to the energy of what being and/or having a father means in your life.  Even if your own father is not currently pyhsically in your life, know that we all have access to that divine, universal fatherly energy that guides, protects, nutures and sometimes carries us throughout our days.
