“You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows”
Ajna chakra is the center of intuition, wisdom and visionary seeing. Before checking with the weather man to see which way your winds are blowing, check in with yourself. Take a moment to honor your innate ability to make the right decision before you reach out beyond your own center.
“Those that are wise let every action be free from the desires of material gain or pleasure; let all desire for results be burned in the fire of Divine knowledge; devote work to the work itself”
Verse 19 The Bhagavad Gita
Greetings dear ones,
Practicing yoga with a desire to achieve something or receive something, we set ourselves up for failure or disappointment because results are not guaranteed. Practicing for the joy of it, we are able to move out of the doing and into the being in practice. To be one with the moment, the pose, the person, the place is the goal of yoga. Allow your ego and material desires to be burnt in the fire of divine knowledge and experience freedom to just be you.
I hope you are enjoying the season of summer. It goes so fast and we try to treasure each day as best we can. In revisiting “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success” by Deepak Chopra, today I focus on the Law of Least Effort by applying Acceptance, Responsibility and Defenseless. By coming to terms with the way things are in the moment, taking responsibility by not blaming yourself or others for the current situation but not feeling the need to defend your point of view, you remain open to new ways of seeing what is happening…..we find the path of least resistance and least effort. In short, we find peace!
The only class this week will be Friday Morning Gentle Yoga at 930am. In person and on Zoom.
Please make a note that Friday morning’s class will begin at 9 AM And end at 10 15 for this week
When you do yoga postures, surrender to the moment, be in the moment, don`t worry about wether you can touch your toes or not, just experience the process.
Then try to carry this attitude into the rest of your day, away from tension, guilt and anxiety.
Experience is the door to the here and now.
Hope you all are finding that door to the here and now by immersing yourself in the experience, the process or the particular cycle that you happen to be in. It’s in the letting go that we find the peace we seek
“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.” – Henry David Thoreau
Greetings dear yoga friends,
Hope your indulging in the sweetness of summer. So many delights for the senses to be savored. Tune in to nature wherever you may be. Sounds, smells, colors, movement and stillness. Practice pratyahara and hone in your focus to truly be present and under the influence of the earth.
It’s been quite a year so far and continues to unfold with both challenges and joys. I’m grateful for all of your support and continued dedication to your practice.
Just as a reminder there will be no classes this coming week as i will be on retreat, class will resume with Tuesday morning July 5th at 9:30 AM.
I cannot stress enough the importance of taking time for yourself by stepping out of your ordinary schedule. It doesn’t mean you have to go far, although getting away from your typical environment can be a great way to shift your perspective.
Take some time this week to take a walk alone and just listen to the sounds of nature . Go to the shores and tune in to the crashing rhythmic sound of the waves. Get Into bed extra early even if it’s still light out to give yourself that rejuvenating sleep.
Meditate do some postures and breathe. Give yourself the space to breathe and reset so you can be present to the joys of summer.
I will see you all next week. Peace love and lots of yoga
