Yoga this Week – November 22, 2020

*Gratitude Class Wednesday Eve*

 May all hearts be at ease. May our contentment promote the energies to alleviate suffering and turn ignorance into knowledge. May the cultivation of santosha guide us to courageous action, deeper community and greater love of all sentient beings.

                                          Swami Shraddhananda

Greetings Dearest Yoga Students,

Santosha is one of the Niyamas outlined in the eight limbs of yoga.  Niyamas are ethical practices that cultivate self awareness which creates inner peace.    Santosha means contentment.  To be content with whatever is.  It is a way to think about life’s conundrums  as a series of predicaments that beg for our attention, creativity, compassion and openness.  Like waves on the ocean these situations continue to arise,  resolve and arise once more.  By Shifting our perspective from aversion to exploration  we transform our obstacles into stepping stones on which we grow.   Contentment is now, not when things get better, not when we have all we think we need, it is now, in this moment.  It allows us to love all of life, opening our hearts and clearing it out of judgment as to what we consider “good” or “bad”.  Contentment allows our hearts to be at ease and guides us to courageous action!

Wednesday Evening Class will be a special Gratitude Thanksgiving Eve Class.  Please have a candle and lighter handy for a special candle meditation and get ready to count all your blessings!

Please make sure to check your email or website prior to heading out for the 1pm Wednesday Yoga Walk at Heritage Park.  Weather, life, etc, may get in our way.  I am planning on walking this week but will post Wednesday by noon to confirm or cancel.

Walk today?

Greetings yoga adventurers

. Today’s forecast for our walk is 34 degrees with 20 mile an hour winds. Let me know if any of you would like to meet to walk at 1pm at heritage park. I’d bundle up and do it but I’m not going to go unless I hear from some of you. What do you think bundle up or cuddle in?

Shanti

“The most effective way to reduce health costs is to reduce demand, and the easiest way to do that is by Self Care” 

Leonard Perlmutter

Hari Om dear yoga students,
Taking time for yourself, especially right now as so many of us are off our routines, uncertain of what is to come and possibly isolated from friends and family, is so very important.  Do your best to 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, meditate, journal 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, prospers and enables you to face anything that comes your way.

Yoga this Week – November 8, 2020

*No Wednesday Night this Week*

Greetings Dear Friends,

Hoping this email finds you at peace with life.  They say struggles make us stronger, although at times struggling can make us feel vulnerable, weak and incapable of achieving our goals.  Sometimes, however, maybe we just need to relax and allow things to take their course.  They always do.  Things always seem to work out and all that energy we use to struggle will only deplete us.    Stay strong and remember you can face anything as long as you become aware of your breath and calmly be willing to do what needs to be done.

If it turns out to be another beautiful day, I will hold Tuesday Morning outdoors & on Zoom!  A notification will be sent.
