Yoga this Week – May 22, 2017

 “Crying is one of the highest devotional songs. One who knows crying, knows spiritual practice. If you can cry with a pure heart, nothing else compares to such a prayer. Crying includes all the principles of Yoga.”

Dearest Yoga Students,

Hope you enjoy a good cry now and again.  I have always been a crier.  The tears just come and there is no holding them back.  Not much has changed.  I cry when I am happy, upset, mad, frustrated, full of love or simply when I become overwhelmed by the beauty and fragility of this life.  Crying integrates a sense of presence like nothing else, it includes breath work, abdominal strengthening and has the ability to allow my emotions to flow like the tears the streaming down my face leaving me calm and relieved.  I used to feel bad about the way I cried.  Those around me would urge me to stop and stifle it,  maybe due to  their own uncomfortability.  Today, I have embraced my ability to wear my emotional body out for the world to see.  If I am in a situation where it is absolutely inappropriate to cry, I take a breath and promise myself a good cry the next chance I get.  So allow yourself to cry.  Cry for the world, cry for yourself, cry for all the amazing ups and downs, and cry for the deep, spiritual love you feel when you witness the sacred beauty all around you.

December 30, 2012 – Happy New Year!



“Leap, and the net will appear” John Burroughs

Celebrate, dream and allow the empty pages of the year ahead to be filled with a vision of hope, happiness, fulfillment and abundance for yourself and your life. Use this brand new beginning to let go of old ways of being that do not serve you any longer making room for new perspectives and attitudes that empower you to empower others. Much like in our yoga asanas, we ground down to rise up, letting go actually allows you move forward. So take time time to breathe into your many positive qualities and let go of negative self-judgement. Bundle up, brave the weather and go take a long walk in the fresh snow making footprints that are all your own!
