**Karma Beach Yoga Fundraiser – Aug 21st – Cedar Beach – Flyer Attached**
“Through practice, I’ve come to see that the deepest source of my misery is not wanting things to be the way they are. Not wanting myself to be the way I am. Not wanting the world to be the way it is. Not wanting others to be the way they are. Whenever I’m suffering, I find this ‘war with reality’ to be at the heart of the problem.”
Greetings dear yoga students,
Welcome to another glorious day. As you soak in the sunshine that is pouring down fromt the sky, think about something you may be “at war” with in your own life. Living life on life’s terms is not an endeavor for the faint hearted. As humans, we seem to always want to fix things or create fantasies and repeat mantras like; “if only things were different then I could be happy”. True inner contentment only comes from within. We must make the decision to be happy now. Now is all we have. This moment, this day, this family, this body, this home, this job, this stretch of 24 hours to live our life. Cultivate acceptance with whatever or whoever is in your life today. Be the one that brings serenity to your interactions and act with your heart on situations that seem to baffle you. Try and do more reflection that reaction and you may find, things are exactly as they should be. Relax, let go and focus today on being at peace with reality. The war within quiets when you cultivate Santosha – contentment; allow yourself to bloom wherever you are planted, within whatever circumstances life finds you.

The fourth Niyama (or observance) in the Eight Limb Path of yoga is the study of the self.
Like so many yoga practices, svadhyaya is the process of getting to know who we really are; our true self. Yoga asana, pranayam, and meditation are all ways to peel off the layers of our false selves. Doing this and staying present to the process is not always easy. As we peel the layers and really look at our exposed wounds, memories, conditionings and patterns, we may feel more confused and defeated than when we began. Trust the process and turn again and again to those spiritual teachers that came before us. They are there to guide us; in books, in music, in our dreams, our prayers or maybe sitting right across from us at work, home or in our communities. As we work to let go of others (or even our own) ideas of who we should be, the more open and compassionate to our own “particular genius” we can become and the more our “natural channels” to the divine open and our dharma (life’s purpose) is revealed.

When you do yoga postures,
surrender to the moment,
be in the moment,
don`t worry about weather
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.
Greetings Dearest Yoga Students,
Hope this email finds you enjoying the beautiful sunshine and clear blue skies that surround you. Karma Beach Yoga is tomorrow morning at 8am.

Coming together in Koola (yogic community) to share energy, song and practice while raising money to support those in need in our own community will prove to be a rejuvenating, worthwhile experience. The Invited Inn feeds many families in our area and is in most need during the summer months when contributions are typically at a low. Hope to see you all on the sand to share in the abundance that we have been so blessed in receiving.

The important thing is to be awake now, to feel the transparency, to feel the universal shining through the individual, and then to allow life to express itself though us.
