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
