Healers and Teachers Day

Get Ready for a Day of Replenishment

spiritual-healing-pictureIt is great work that you all do, teaching yoga and other important skills: giving massage, Life coaching, or other healing modalities! You do it so others might live a life that is more centered, open, integrated, meaningful, and freeing.

Yet sometimes, we “healers” and yogis get caught up in helping others to the point of depletion. We work on “delivering” the class format, assisting students and clients to learn a better way, use an energetic tool, or how to structure the session so the Intention you put your attention on awakens in the student the desire for more balance, ease, and strength. All the while, attempting to keep up your own practice, meditate so you can stay centered, and attend to your family and relationship needs as well.

Well, I think it is time for YOU to take a break!

Into the Sea of De-Light ~ A Day of Replenishment

Date: July 31st
Time: 10am – 3pm
Fee: $50

What if you allowed me at Light and Love Yoga to attend to you for a day?

What if you came to my place and allowed me to lead and facilitate you in re-aligning yourself with your True Nature?

What if you took the time to discover your wants, desires, and goals NOW?

What if you came and let yourself be guided into present day, moment-to-moment awakenings?

What if……..Indeed.

Your heart is your first teacher, ~Cherokee saying

One is to visualize the fire of the union of the sun, moon, and fire as single-pointed focus in the heart. ~Sri Abhinavagupta

My heart is pulsing with passion, like waves on an ocean.
I’m at home, wherever I am…
I can see with closed eyes the beauty that dances.
Behind the veils intoxicated with love,
I too dance the rhythm of this moving world. ~Rumi

The Path of Balance

Hi Yoginis and Yogis,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs we saunter on into the month of November, I take pause for remembering my feelings and attitudes about GRATITUDE. How can we not feel gratitude when we enjoy such perfect weather? With chilly nights, cool mornings, and then the brilliant sunny skies and temps in the high 60′s, low 70′s? Yesterday the sky was such a perfect azure blue, I couldn’t resist lying down in the grass and just gazing up for a while! I was reminded of the Buddha, who often is pictured as that same color blue with a shimmering golden aura around him.

I have been studying Buddha more lately and admire his sense of freedom, patience, and yes, humor! He was extremely creative. Did you know that? He was always working for the masses, even though he came from great royalty. Buddha left his royal life to find his path to enlightenment. What he found, after much suffering, both physically, mentally, and emotionally, was that the Path of Balance was far better than extremism. He called this path The Middle Way.

As we move into this month of gratitude I encourage everyone to find and follow your path of Balance. How to balance your intake of food with your level of energy and practice of yoga, how to balance your relationships in harmony, and how to balance your inner being with that which you put on the outside for others to see.

Our yoga at Seaside will follow the Buddha’s Middle Way the month of November. I encourage you to attend all the classes in order to find your way.

Here is the schedule for November and December, 2013

  • Classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, 8:15-9:45am
  • Fridays, Walking Group FREE 7:45-9am
  • Fridays, Yoga Flow & Go, 9-10:30am
  • No yoga classes on Nov 27th & 29th
  • Christmas ~ New Years Break ~ Dec. 23rd,2013 ~ Jan 6th,2014

Much Light and Love, Lynda

blog Light and Love Yoga

Breathing in ~ I am aware of my heart; breathing out ~ I am smiling at my heart…Thich Nhat Hanh. November is all about Gratitude and Love. What do you do that brings forth feelings of gratitude?

It isn’t always easy, during the Holidays, to let go and be in alignment with who you really are. Old expectations, beliefs, and worries about family, money, time, and the multitude of other stressors pulling on you can leave you depleted. Where is the gratitude in being left out or fatigued or sad or angry? Where is the appreciation in arguing with the ones you love? When I get into this mode, I often go to a simple breathing meditation.

If you find any resonance with this, take a moment to go within. Go to your own heart and slowly begin to ground your body. Straighten your spine, put both feet on the ground and b-r-e-a-t-h-e with mindfulness. Simply follow your breath in and out. Once you feel more centered, you can repeat the affirmation from Thich Nhat Hanh above; “Breathing in ~ I am aware of my heart. Breathing out ~ I am smiling at my heart.” “Why, that’s very nice”, answers the heart.
