Yoga this Week-January 23, 2022-No Friday Class

Yoga Sutra 1:2 – Chitta Vritti Nirodha

Yoga is to quiet the mind long enough so we can become present to the experience that is in the here and now. Pema Chodron put it beautifully in speaking about meditation. “You are [essentially] training in interrupting the of the wandering mind and going right to the experience itself” When we “train” our minds to come back from wandering (into the future, past, fantasy or fear), the reality of our lives becomes clear and we are able to receive the moment in all its complexity and wholeness.

Yoga This Week – January 16, 2022

Tomorrow is the first full moon of 2022! It is known as the Wolf Moon as there tends to be lots of howling going on this time of year! ” The wolf moon that comes in the dead of winter is a time for transformation and introspection. It is a times of figuring our what you need in order to have a successful life. It is also a time of seeing what is missing and finding truth in what you long for” Astrologer Stina Garbis writes. So take a deep breath and try howling at the moon, releasing any blocks that hold you back from your authentic self. Create an intention to enlighten your mind to see the open doors that are right in front of you and to have the courage to step through.

Happy New Year-Yoga this Week-January 2, 2022

“Our practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It’s about befriending who we are already”

Pema Chodron

A happy, healthy, peaceful 2022 to you all! Instead of creating all those new year resolutions and self-shaming intentions, let’s try to befriend who we are in this moment. By sending ourselves loving kindness we give ourselves the space and time we need to examine our lives, our routines and the ways in which we may unconsciously sabotage our efforts. So in this new year, be kind to yourself, honor your struggles and do the things that bring you joy, create inner peace and the changes you seek to make will happen without force, fear or anguish.

Here is a beautiful message I received from Vivian after class on Friday, with her permission I copy it here. Thank you Vivian!!

So the word you spoke a number of times today that resonated with me was “soften”. I sometimes say to myself,  soften your belly, when I’m feeling tight and closed. But just an all-purpose “soften” is good to have in my head. In fact I think my intention for the new year will be “soften into stillness.” If there’s anything we’ve been reminded of repeatedly these past 2 years is that we walk on groundlessness. So I’m trying to envision and hopefully embody softening into stillness so I can glide through my unpredictable days rather than tripping or slogging through them. Soften and glide in stillness, whatever life brings.

“In the heart of every person on this Earth
burns the spark of luminous goodness;
in no heart is there total darkness.
May we who celebrate this winter solstice,
by our lives and service, by our prayers and love,
call forth from one another the light and the love
that is hidden in every heart.” Edward Hayes

Take this time to step out of the comings and goings and embrace the darkest of nights as a time of deep reflection. The word Solstice literally means Sun Stands Still. There is a moment of rare stillness as the sun stops before it begins to turn in the direction of increasing light. It is a time of celebration and gratitude for the ever changing seasons of our life honoring both the light and the dark and all the beautiful shades of gray in between.

May the peace of the winter solstice be upon you and yours!

Namaste,

Amy

 

Yoga this Week – December 13, 2021

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. ….”Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit. “Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.” “Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked,   “It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time…..Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.” (from The Velveteen Rabbit

Greetings Dear yoga students,

Becoming “real” and “living in your truth” is not painless or pretty, but a necessary step towards wholeness and healing.  It takes courage, stamina and faith to arise each day, stand in your truth and face your life in all of its reality;  turning away from nothing that you see.   This process of becoming real involves the art of clear seeing, compassion and a willingness to be used for a higher purpose. In becoming real, you can’t become ugly, you ultimately become the beautiful, spiritual, loving being you always were meant to be

Inspiring Yoga Quotes for Your Practice

Yoga helps to ground us into ourselves so that whatever it is that is happening outside of us, (which we cannot control) has limited ability to throw us off balance. We come back to our inner stability, literally stand on our own two feet, feeling the spine become long, our gaze fixed straight ahead and our hearts expand with compassion, clarity and love.
