Beach Yoga Fundraiser this Morning at 9am inRocky Point
 
 
 
Greetings Dearest Yoga Students,
 
Three of the most precious gifts in life that are easily overlooked are Awareness, Forgiveness and Gratitude.  Be aware of all you are and all you have. Forgive yourselves and others for being learners in this lifetime. Be grateful for all your experiences and you will walk in grace for all your days.  Cultivating these three gifts as often as you can will enable you to tap in a wellspring of vitality within yourself.  It is from this vital energy that we find our path of service.  If we truly are aware, for give and are grateful for others, we cannot help but see the humanity in the eyes that surround us.  It is through this human connection that we are able to be the expression of the very love we seek.

 **Please note that there is no Thursday or Friday Class this Week**

 


It’s time. If you are to walk the path of heart, then it is time…”
If not now, when? If not me, who? To walk the path of the heart is a great honor. Every human has the choice to walk this path, but very few will decide to make it. Why? Well, because you can’t act and behave like everyone else behaves. You must be the person who will learn to look within. You must be the person who will be fully accountable for yourself. You must be the person who prays and meditates. You must be the person who will sacrifice. You must decide to be a Peaceful Warrior

Yoga this Week – May 12, 2012

 

 

Birds are a miracle because they prove to us there is a finer, simpler state of being which we may strive to attain.
                                                          Doug Coupland
 
 
 Good Morning dearest yoga students,
 
 Step outside your door and take in all the amazing abundance of the natural world.  We can learn so much from natures rhythms as we allow her to nurture, sooth and remind us we are all part of the same whole.  I get a deep sense of comfort as I watch the birds fly back and forth from tree to tree.   They have the freedom and joy many of us long for.   The many varieties, sizes and colors interact and co-exist in harmony with each other and the world around them, adjusting from season to season with the ability to simply sing after a storm.   Take stock in what you see in the bird kingdom today, after so many days of rain the power of the sun is orchestrating a beautiful symphony all around you.  Allow yourself to soar into the day, whatever your plans.  Try to look up often, walk barefoot in the grass allowing the breeze to caress your skin and remind yourself you are as free as the birds in the air to sing your unique song making the world a better place.

 
 
“A bird does not sing because it has the answer.  It sings because it has a song.”
                                                           Chinese Proverb

Yoga this Week – May 6, 2012

***Scroll down to the bottom to see some upcoming events***

“We are far now from home and weary from our travels. The sun is setting and there is no destination in sight. Yoga is a lamp lit in the window of our home, dimly glimpsed across the spiritual wilderness in which we wander. At a time when we could not feel further from our home, yoga reminds us that we are already there, that we need simply awaken from our dream of separation, our dream of imperfection.”
                                                Rolf Gates-Meditations from the Mat

Greetings dearest yoga students,

Yoga brings us home.  In the quiet spaces in between the movement of breath, of postures, of thought, what remains is perfect peace.  We must let go of the illusion that we are not enough, that our lives need to look a certain way, that our bodies should not age, that we are separate from each other and simply dive in to the present moment where we are welcomed with pure acceptance. 

In dealing with a particularly challenging issue this past week, the outpouring and support from those around me was astonishing.  I went from feeling hopeless to complete gratitude as I experienced a profound realization that I am being carried by a grace that is beyond my comprehension.  The most important thing was that I stopped carrying all the weight and reached out.  I simply fell into the arms of those around me and magically solutions popped up, people came to my aide and my situation was solved. 

Know that you too are being carried by this same grace, there is a community of loving others that will be there to catch you when you fall and carry you if need be.  Practice your yoga as a way to see through this “spiritual wilderness” to the next face that may need you to carry them.  Our journey in this life is simply to to remember what we have always known:  We are one, we are already home and we possess all we need to be happy, joyous and free

Yoga this Week – April 14, 2012

 
"To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; 
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; 
To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, 
whether by healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; 
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived." 
 
Ralph Waldo Emerson
 

Greetings dear yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you appreciating the amazing energy of spring.  As the world around us displays its enduring beauty, so we must come to realize we are part of all of creation unfolding.  Our interactions with each other, the world and ourselves have a tremendous impact whether we see the effects or not.  Shopping at our local supermarket yesterday, I was filled with such a sense of community and love as row by row,  I was greeted by neihbors, students, and friends; hugs and greetings of concern and well wishes abounded in our interactions (it took me twice as long to shop, but it was worth it).

  Keep your life simple, realize that it is in the small everyday acts of kindness that make a life meaningful, joyous and productive.  Go where your heart leads you, be quick to laugh and eager to give.  We don’t have to accomplish grandiose acts of valor in order to “help one life breathe easier”.  Mother Theresa said to “do small things with great love”.  Take pride in your small acts of kindness today and live this day well!!!

Yoga this Week – March 24, 2012

 

 “I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”  
                                   Brene Brown
 
 
 
Connection.  Interdependence.  Strength.  Love.  Acceptance. Understanding…..These are the things that sustain our human relationships.  Think of a time when you truly felt seen, heard and valued.  A beautiful student made a comment to me as she was turning the corner to leave class, with tears in her eyes, she said “Amy, you are truly a blessing”.  Immediately I wanted to retaliate but I stopped and smiled, knowing that she needed to be heard and I needed to hear.  It is amazing how empowering it can be to be truly seen and heard in all your frailty and power, as you are. 
 
 
 
 The energy that I feel and see between you all when I teach you yoga is a connection that is hard to describe.  You show up week after week and allow yourselves to be seen in sometimes what can be a very vulnerable state.  While facing your bodies and minds in a contemplative practice can be exhilarating it can also be extremely difficult if your are dealing with external or internal issues that require non-judgmental compassion.  It is amazing the connection we can cultivate when we allow our most vulnerable, as well as our most powerful, selves to be seen and heard.  You may have experienced the joy that comes from  “getting a pose” and how the remarks of encouragement connect us with each other, but the same connection is made when you don’t get the pose or can’t reach your foot or fall into a heap because you lost your balance.  The point is we make a “sprititual” connection when we offer trust, respect and support while we are in the process of being seen and heard.  It is this spiritual connection that makes us feel valued no matter what state we are in. 
 
Today, value the energy of connection with those around you.  Support them in such a way that empowers them.  Bring your full attention when someone is speaking to you and let them be seen and heard.  Let yourself be seen and heard and allow yourself to be sustained by the deep connections you have in your life; your connection with nature, others, your divine power, and yourself.

Yoga this Week – March 18, 2012

“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength, but through persistence”
                                   ~Buddha
 

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students, 

Hoping this message finds you enjoying the first signs of spring that are popping up all around us. Think about the perseverance and patience that nature is gifted with.  The small bulbs that wait silently underground, the perennials that lay dormant waiting for the signals and signs that it is time to begin their work of opening, pushing, growing up out of the dark earth into the light.  Nature does not give up, it finds a way to regenerate.  The natural world knows what needs to be done and does not question its role in its lifetime.  As I look out my window and marvel at the pink and purple hyacinths that bloom in my garden, it fills me with hope and joy that we too can rise above our darkness and shine in all our glory

We all know the saying that nothing comes easy.  It is not so much talent, genius, education or luck that enables great people to do great things.  It is simply the persistence and perseverance of doing the next right thing, showing up when they don’t really want to, knocking at the door long enough until someone answers.  We too must learn the lesson of patience and persistence as we confront situations in our lives where we are either forced to wait or forced to gather all our faith to keep hanging on day in and day out, dangling on the edge of vulnerability. 

My young son learned a great lesson yesterday as he walked through his fear to re-take a test qualifying him to be an umpire that he had failed last week.  He had decided that he was not going to take the chance of  “being completely humilitated” if he failed a second time laying face down on his bed.  At the last moment to our surprise he popped up, got dressed and asked my husband to take him.  He came home shining with pride as he ended up passing the test!    The act of suiting up and showing up even when the obstacles arise in our path, builds confidence, faith, character and joy. 

 

The Yoga Sutras tell us is it the obstacles that lead us into a deeper understanding of ourselves which in turn allows to become deeply connected to others as well as the divine force that flows in and out of everything.  Directly confronting our difficulties with clarity, compassion and persistence creates freedom.  Freedom in knowing you are never really trapped in any situation.  For today, see if you can change your perspective to any “rocks” that are in your stream.  Stay focused, do the next right thing, however small it may seem, and try and find the lesson, the jewel that is hidden within.  Today, be persistent in your journey towards balance, freedom, peace and serenity in your life. 

Happy First Day of Spring – Tuesday, March 20th – New Moon March 22nd!!!  Yay
