Did you know that some yoga classes are conducted in candlelight? I find candlelight, or firelight to be quite magical. I thought I would share a little about my first candlelight yoga experience. My hope is this will persuade you to give candlelit yoga, meditation, or movement a try.
When a baby is born we are moved by the gift that child receives, life. Somewhere along the way, this gift is taken for granted and sometimes worse, unacknowledged. I'm going to share with you why we should live each day with the eyes of a newborn and never be afraid to ask someone’s age. Plus, why you should always say, with gusto, how many glorious years you have been gifted.
My first yoga class was in college. A single PE credit that seemed more ‘approachable’ than running, or anything else on the list. I was directed to purchase a little deck of yoga cards with basic stick figures in various positions. I do not recall if these cards had directions on the front or the back. I shuffled through that deck of cards trying to visually memorize the shapes of poses.
A few years back, I purchased a labeler. This hand held device was shaped like a Y and awkwardly fit into the palm of my hand. I was so excited about my little purchase and the great prospect of labeling everything I had. I purchased spring green label tape, snapped it into place and smiled with the realization that I would soon be so organized, that I would never have to clean again.
Saturday night at 11 pm, I arrived home from a week long vacation in Mexico (yes, it was AMAZING). Nine hours later I was standing in the sun teaching yoga at our Yoga IN the Vines at Raptor Ridge event. Some might not look forward to going back to ‘work’ so soon. But for me, I was EXCITED.
We are sooo excited because Yoga IN the Vines at Raptor Ridge is less than two weeks away! Mark your calendars (if you haven't already) for May 1st at 8:00 am. This time is for you to relax and restore.
Spring seems to be the perfect time to talk about change. Change is all around us, the weather seems to be at odds with itself, the plants are in a constant state of unrest, and the days are growing longer by the minute. Change is a constant in the spring.
In last week's blog we talked about change and different ways to look at this life long process. This week I would like to visit about a few ways that yoga can help us to manage the process of change. There are many lessons to be had when it comes to yoga and change, but, these are three things that I have experienced repeatedly over my years of practice. Three lessons that keep coming back to me.
