“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!!

Yoga this Week October 2, 2011

“When non violence (ahimsa) in speech, thought and action is established, one’s aggressive nature is relinquished and others abandon hostility in one’s presence”
                                           Yoga Sutras
 

Have you ever found yourself in the presence of someone who exudes such a peaceful energy that  just to be around them or hear their voice allows your shoulders to lower and your breath to quiet, generating a global feeling of relief?  Think about the kind of energy you generate when you walk into a room; the kitchen in your home, your office or school, a party, your car.  What kinds of prompts are you receiving from internal sources?  We can get caught up in inner voices that tell us to judge, fear or compete with others or ourselves which is a form of himsa (violence).  However, we can choose in any given moment to turn off those voices that badger and color our perceptions and create a new dialogue which is of a non-hostile nature creating space to fill wherever we are with a peaceful energy that others will gravitate to, benefit from and mirror back to us.   So for today, in honor of Mahatma Gandhi’s Birthday: 

“Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed.  Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well”

**Thank you to all who have been so kind in remembering to bring something for the food pantry bin.  It is with much pride that I  bring all of your thoughtful donations down to the outreach center in Mt Sinai for which they are soooo grateful**.
 
“In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, wand what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.  Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth”
                                          Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)
