“Let us meditate on the light of the sun which shines on the earth, in the sky and in space. May this divine light shine also within illuminating our intellects to make the right decisions at the right time for the good of all
Greetings Dear Yoga Students, – We all know that change is inevitable, but yet we still long to cling to the known, the familiar, the comfortable. George Harrison once said, “If we aren’t changing, we aren’t growing”. Everything that grows must change. It is just as important to our well being to accept and embrace change as it is to breathe.
Be open to the shifting landscapes, the rise and fall of emotions, the ebb and flow of energy. When the waves of change seem to be harsh and the seas are rough around you, remember that you are part of an amazing, vast ocean of movement through which you are inevitably being molded, changed and led in the direction of your divine destiny
“Yoga does not just change the way we see things it transforms the person who sees”
Hari Om Dear Friends,
Look around you. Really take your time and look around. Be thankful for the little things that make up your daily round. Acknowledge the blessings in having the comfort of a home where you feel sheltered and protected. Walk around your space; whether it be in your yard, around your house or your apartment. Consciously take in all the blessings that surround you. Yoga not only transforms how we see things but transforms the person who sees. What do you see around you today?
Much gratitude to all those that attended the Sunday synergy session with me and Lauren. We will be adding another session early next year. These sessions have a limited number of spots and sell out quickly. If you see it on the schedule and you’re interested I would suggest signing up as soon as possible.
Yoga gift certificates are available all year round. Why not give the gift of yoga to someone that you love?
Here’s an except from one of my favorite books “The Spiritual Teachings of Yoga” on a true yogi’s aim in doing asana (physical postures). Read on…we will discuss in detail this week in class.
“Her aim in doing the asanas is not only to increase flexibility fitness and strength, but primarily to release tension held in her body, to loosen it, soften it, open it so that internal blockages and obstructions formed by old negative emotions and thoughts can be shaken up cleansed and washed away allowing the bodies internal pathways and organs to become clear.
In this open state her living energy, her prana can be free flowing and move uninhindered through her body.
The Yogi achieves this openness by performing her asanas mindfully, working gently with her body and not forcing it into perfect positions…. Since periods of growth are not continuous the Yogi willingly contrasts period’s movement with periods of rest respecting her body so that it’s natural intelligence can consolidate what it has attained”

It’s important to our growth to check in with ourselves from time to time. The intention is not to judge or berate but to realign to our highest values and discern how we wish to show up in our lives.
Take aook at the attributes above and chances are you will see growth in some areas and some work to do in others. This is the path, this is the work of becoming. This is Svadhyaya…self study to see where you are stuck and begin the self caring process of opening.
