Dearest Yoga Students,
Yoga gives specific tools to lead a well balanced life, full of love, presence and adventure. All we need to do is continue to follow our breath, open our minds, and move energy in our bodies to feel the fullness of being alive. As we become more aware of our habits, and how our state of mind effects our actions, it is only natural that we begin to make better decisions. Join us this week as we once again clear away the clutter to find what is always waiting for us, freedom!

Happy New Year dear Yoga Students,
We had a wonderful time at the Kirtan last Friday night and I was amazed how free and happy I felt the next day! The energy has stayed with me all weekend. I was particularly taken with the moment we chanted to “our struggles” during Hari Om Tat Sat which translates as we bow to the truth of all that is sacred. Our struggles are part of our sacred path. Just like moving into the darkness from Autumn Equinox to Winter Solstice, it is part of the sacred cycle of our lives to move in and out and forward and back again. Hopefully we learn to grow, to leave behind what doesn’t serve us, take with us the lessons and honor the journey. Here we are, beautiful yogi’s, at the start of a brand new year. May you all and all beings find peace within your darkness and may we all honor the ever increasing light together as we travel this life together.

Dear Yoga Enthusiasts,
I love when a student emails me to ask for a poem I read in class, or to comment about a pose or a feeling they encountered during practice. I love getting feedback from you! So please don’t hesitate to comment to me whether its something positive or something I need to be aware of to improve your experience. I read the following poem last week and was asked to share it. You may want to print it and pull it out whenever Winter is getting the best of you! I know I will. (Scroll down for the poem).
Love, light and peace as we begin this next trip around the sun!

Winter teaches me patience:
Walk carefully on icy sidewalks. Drive slower through snarled traffic.
Take more time to put on layers of clothes. Wait for streets to be cleared of snow.
Be understanding about mail arriving late.
Winter strengthens my courage:
Go out into windy, freezing air.Risk traveling on snowy roads.
Dress warmly and go for a walk. Ski through woods, alone and free.
Be a peace in long days of darkness.
Winter brings me beauty:
Look up at the star-filled sky. Pause to breathe the crisp air.
Vigil with steel-blue sunsets. Marvel at the frost etchings on windows.
Sink boots into soft, sensual powder.
Winter gives me silent hope:
Touch the terminal buds on branches.Clear the snow and find green moss below.
Watch the sunlight fade, then linger longer.Stand with the strength of evergreen trees.
Listen to the birds cheeping at the feeder.
Namaste Dear Ones,
Join us as we begin 2019 sending positive energy into a world that so desperately needs it. this is a great way to release the old and bring in the new. Chanting is meditative, uplifting and fun!
Amy on Harmonium, Steve on guitar and Jim percussion will lead original compositions of sacred chants meant to clear the mind, body and spirit of clutter and negative energy. Chanting (or simply being present and listening) connects us not only to each other as community but is said to call down powerful spiritual energy to connect us to a power beyond this world. Chanting is healing, uplifting and meditative. No vocal or chanting experience necessary. All are welcome!! Let go of your inhibitions and tap into the divine flow of sacred Chant!
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, Om!!!

“My beloved child, break your heart no longer.
Each time you judge yourself, you break your own heart.
You stop feeding on the love which is the wellspring of your vitality.
The time has come.
Your time. To celebrate.
And to see the goodness that you are.
You my child, are divine. You are pure. You are sublimely free.
You are God in disguise. And you are always perfectly safe.
Do not fight the dark. Just turn on the light.
Let go, And breathe into the goodness that you are.”
Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,
May Peace, Contentment and Joy fill your heart and soul this entire week and beyond! Thank you sooo much for being part of our wonderful yoga community. The Winter Solstice Sangha was so much fun and the connection I see between you all fills me with such happiness. After all, what truly is the most important thing in our lives?
