Love is a form of grace. It gives us the stamina to endure what would normally be unendurable. Love’s power is so great, we sometimes fear the demands it places on our lives. Love finds it difficult to say no. And abundant love can help improve even the worst circumstances. Loves transforms every action into a powerful instrument of change.

It seems that the universe paces our empowerment to the speed of our willingness to act on our own empowerment- when the student is willing the teacher appears. But we are required to notice the teacher, the sign, to hear and heed the call or the signal.

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Wow! A great, positive reading this week from Doreen and those magical creatures, the mermaids and dolphins. I love this deck and its gentle messages. They come together to create a very exciting and positive outlook on the days to come.

Negativity fast, anyone? 😉

Have a beautiful, blessed week, friends.

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Hey there, yoga lovers! Happy Earth Day!

This is another great reading by goddess Doreen. Personally, it’s so spot on for changes happening in so many areas of my life that I felt as if I was getting a personalized reading as I was watching it. I especially love her outlook for the weekend.

She is on the road and using the Angel Tarot deck once again. The readings she does with that deck always seem so detailed and accurate.

How about you? Did this reading ring as many bells for you as it did for me? I love to hear about it in the comments!

Have a beautiful, blessed week, everyone… namaste.

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

It’s here!

The spring equinox is Wednesday… ’tis the season for new beginnings and renewal.

Doreen’s reading this week blends quite nicely with my personal theme for the week: spring cleaning. I’ll have much more to say about this as the week progresses, but as the cards have recommended for today, I’m off to spend some time outdoors. So, without any further ado…

Doreen and the fairies!

Have a wonderful, beautiful, blissful week, yoga lovers!

Yoga for healthy roots

If you are not familiar with ‘inner body’ awareness, close your eyes for a moment and find out if there is life inside your hands. Don’t ask your mind. It will say, ‘I can’t feel anything.’ Probably it will also say, ‘Give me something more interesting to think about.’ So instead of asking your mind, go to the hands directly. By this I mean become aware of the subtle feeling of aliveness inside them. It is there. You just have to go there with your attention to notice it. Your may get a slight tingling sensation at first, then a feeling of energy or aliveness. If you hold your attention in your hands for a while, the sense of aliveness will intensify. Some people won’t even have to close their eyes. They will be able to feel their ‘inner hands’ at the same time as they read this. Then go to your feet, keep your attention there for a minute or so, and begin to feel your hands and feet at the same time. Then incorporate other parts of the body- legs, arms, abdomen, chest, and so on- into that feeling until you are aware of the inner body as a global sense of aliveness.

That was where we began class this week. Since my inspiration this week was metaphorical- preparing the soil for the seeds we will be planting and growing in the rest of 2013- this passage from A New Earth served to anchor our practice in our bodies rather than our minds.

Spring is a time of renewal, and I find myself excited and inspired annually at this time. I have had a backyard vegetable garden for a few years now, and the process of preparing, planting, and tending that garden has connected me more deeply to the unique qualities of this part of nature’s cycles. I’ve become more aware of how my efforts in the garden can serve as a template for renewal in many areas of my life- and how those efforts can be bolstered by the prevailing conditions of the season.

As any gardener knows, before you can begin planting the seeds and watching them sprout, you must uproot the weeds and prepare the soil. Our practice, therefore, comprised of grounding, standing postures and special attention to the flow of apana vayu. Standing postures activate and balance the root chakra, which governs our sense of security, stability, and safety. A healthy root chakra is an essential foundation.

Apana vayu, one of the five “winds” or aspects of the life force, is associated with the lower abdomen and pelvis and relates to eliminative functions. Shedding, of sorts. It is the downward-flowing energy that allows the old to be released and transform into the fertilizer for the new to grow. Staying in the “inner body” awareness where we opened our practice together, we used various standing postures to explore apana vayu and connect with this “shedding” energy that enables renewal. To learn more about apana vayu and yoga postures that activate it, check out this article from the Himalayan Institute.

I’ve created a Pinterest board to gather my “spring cleaning” inspirations. As I said, this is one of my very favorite times of the year, so I’ll be keeping you posted on my progress throughout the next few weeks. Stay tuned…

Namaste, yoga lovers!

Yoga this week!

We’re transitioning into one of my very favorite times of the year, and I am so stoked for class this week. We’re a week away from the spring equinox now, and that is going to serve as the inspiration for our yoga practices together for the rest of the month.

Tomorrow (Thursday, March 14), we will explore apana vayu, the downward-flowing energy of elimination, along with grounding standing poses to “prep the soil” for new beginnings this spring.

What seeds are you ready to plant for the rest of your year? What do you wish to manifest?

Join me on the mat to put those visions into action!

Weekly wisdom from Doreen Virtue

Have things been feeling intense for you lately?

With today’s full moon in Virgo, both Mercury and Saturn in retrograde, and change happening on so many levels right now, you may be feeling unsettled- like it’s time for change in your own, little corner of the world. Doreen picks up on this with her reading this week. She relies on the “Magical Messages from the Fairies” oracle card deck to bring in some light and playful energy and remind us of our own power of positive manifestation.

Bring on the fairies!!

Have a beautiful week, everyone!

One thing we do know: Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment.
