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.”
Kripalvanandji

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.

Yoga this Week – March 23, 2014

  “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength, but through persistence”

                                   ~Buddha

buddha by river

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,

Hoping this message finds you enjoying the first signs of the new season that surely awaits us.   Think about the perseverance and patience that nature is gifted with.  The small bulbs that wait silently underground, the perennials that lay dormant waiting for the cues that it is time to begin their work of opening, pushing, growing up out of the dark earth into the light.  Nature does not give up, it finds a way to regenerate.  The natural world knows what needs to be done and does not question its role in its lifetime.  Experiencing the persistent and reliable cycles of nature  fills me with hope,  joy and faith that we too can rise above our difficult, dormant or hard times and shine in all our glory when the time is right.

It doesn’t just take talent, intellect or luck for great people to do great things;  Most often, it is simply the persistence and perseverance of doing the next right thing, showing up  and suiting up, waiting patiently when we have exhausted our efforts, or getting on the yoga mat in spite of ourselves.    We too must learn the lesson of  persistence as we confront situations in our lives where we are either forced to wait or forced to gather all our faith to keep hanging on day in and day out, dangling on the edge of vulnerability.   We are all capable of greatness in our own unique way.

sunflower om

The Yoga Sutras tell us is it the obstacles that lead us into a deeper understanding of ourselves which in turn allows to become deeply connected to others as well as the divine force that flows in and out of everything.  Directly confronting our difficulties with clarity, compassion and persistence creates freedom.  Freedom in knowing you are never really trapped in any situation.  For today, see if you can change your perspective to any “rocks” that are in your stream.  Stay focused, do the next right thing, however small it may seem, and try and find the lesson, the jewel that is hidden within.  Today, be persistent in your journey towards balance, freedom, peace and serenity.  Flow within the river of your life, patient, strong and free.

Yoga this Week – Regular Schedule Resumes – December 28, 2013

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin. 

Mother Theresa

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,

The end of the year is upon us.  It is a time of deep reflection for most.  A time to look back with compassion and illuminate  the path we have walked.  This time is a unique opportunity to reflect, accept and let go.  You have changed, you have been changed by the experiences you have traveled through and the obstacles you have been confronted with; you do not need to hold on for the past will always be part of who you are today.   The most important thing we can do is learn and let it go.  In order to live the life we are meant to live, we must make space by releasing the past.  If you find yourself holding on, bless whatever situation you are at odds with, trust that all of it was destined to happen and let yourself move forward, you will move forward non the less, so why not go with the flow of your life.  All we have is NOW…Let us begin

Therapeutic Yoga – Yoga is for Everyone

 

 

Therapeutic Yoga – Wednesdays 11  to 1215pm

Yoga is for everyone.  If you can breathe, you can do yoga.  Yoga is a cultivation of inner peace, acceptance and self love.  It is more than the ability to touch your toes or stand on your head.

This class will afford students who may have hesitated to join a typical class the opportunity  to experience the amazing transformative power of yoga in thier lives; body, mind and spirit.


 

“Therapeutic Yoga” will be a very gentle class, catering to those that have special situations, recuperating from surgery, have limited mobility or simply want to ease into yoga practice in a gentle, safe way.   We will use chairs and props if needed and each pose/movement will be modified so that everyone can experience the deep healing yoga offers  in their own unique way. We will begin each class with gentle breath  work and end with a fifteen minute relaxation posture incorporating some reiki energy healing and essential oils.

rest yoga

This class will run on four week monthly sessions and will be limited to 8 students.  Payment of $55 prior to start of session will cover all four classes.  On a drop in basis, if space allows, the fee will be $16 per class and require prior notice to ensure space is available.   Let me know if you or anyone you know would benefit from this class are interested.

 

Namaste
