Yoga this Week – September 18, 2017

***Please Note that Wednesday Night is switched to Thursday Night in –  Yoga Room – Farewell to Beach Yoga***

A snippet of our Equinox Goddess Retreat!!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  

Marianne Williamson

Our third annual Equinox Goddess Retreat was amazing; the weather, the space, the place and all the Goddesses were breathtakingly beautiful.  Words cannot describe the gratitude I feel for this experience!  Onward and inward we go to the lovely season of Autumn!

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

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!!
