The Gap Between Thoughts
Long time, no blog!
Our little studio has been one joyfully busy place during the past few months, and we're overflowing with love and gratitude to each of you for being part of this exciting journey. My apologies for not posting more regularly; I guess you could consider it the "gap between posts"!
If you attend practice regularly at our studio you've probably heard me encourage you to explore "The gap between the thoughts." I'd like to expand a bit on that idea. In a world that revels in hustle and bustle, moments of stillness are often overlooked -- and underappreciated. That long line at the bank; the wait for a flight or the change of a red light. These are opportunities to embrace and explore stillness, to give ourselves a mental break from stress and the busy-ness of existance.
I like to infuse a moment of stillness into each practice, just after you've settled onto your mat but before asana begins. Exploring "the gap between the thoughts" is like pausing between the frames of a video. It gives you a moment to stop, to allow your breathing to stabilize and bring your entire being fully into the moment so you can experience your time on your mat with complete awareness.
Speaking of practice, our 2019 Summer Class Schedule is online. In addition to our regular delights, we want to invite you to treat yourself to a Kundalini Yoga & Meditation or healing, donation-based Gong Meditation & Relaxation class, courtesy of Barry Raccio.
We're honored to have the pleasure of sharing in your journey, and having you as part of ours.
See you at the studio! Namaste
We encourage you to experience for yourself how a regular yoga practice can bring strength, healing and joy to your life. As our Divine Students discover each day, it's never too late to begin a practice of self-care and compassion. When you're ready, we're here to encourage and support you with every breath. Have a sensational day -- and we'll see you on the mat!
