The blessings are within the journey!  Each day, is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of whom we come in contact with and through our God given gifts, we have the opportunity, EVERY DAY to do this!  It’s through the practice or repetition, over a long period of time, listening and becoming receptive, we get better at anything and through dedication and discipline we discover our true nature, which aligns us with God.  Whatever your chosen discipline/s may be, use them to serve others and glorify God.  -Sharon Denton

Resting on the Moon Days is a way to honor one of nature’s most powerful cycles.  The human body is primarily composed of water (50% – 60% on average), the moon phases affect not only the tides of the oceans and seas, but the currents of our own bodies as well. On the Full Moon, our energies are waxing to a peak, and it is easy to fall out of balance towards too much vigor. On the New Moon, our energies are waning to their calmest, and we may find it difficult to rouse ourselves.

 Women are encouraged to rest from classes on the first three days of their monthly cycle.

424950_337935346258974_823860522_nBook 2, verse 46 in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras explains how asanas (postures), should contain the qualities of sthira (steadiness, ease) and sukha (joy, happiness).  By embodying this state of being on the yoga mat, we begin to cultivate an awareness of these qualities outside of the yoga asana practice. Once we become more available to the present moment, life becomes so rich and full and such a blessing, a celebration of all you have been given.

If your goal in coming to the yoga practice is for fitness and or weight loss, through a dedicated practice you will achieve this. The Ashtanga Vinyasa system heals the whole body, organs, joints, hormonal system, circulatory system, nervous system, energetic body and the mind.  Through the _MKP5503detoxification of heating the body through movement and static postures the body will cleanse, allowing for balancing to occur on may levels.  Focusing on the breath, core and inward gaze allows for healing to occur, releasing old memories and emotional scars, a gift to move forward.   The choices we begin to make increasingly continue to support our practice, as the benefits of eating nourishing light meals, getting proper rest, breathing more fully to witness life to it’s fullest are only a few of the ways our lives change when we embark on this journey of yoga.   Hope to see you in class.  Namaste.
