Time away = my muscles go on vacation

I went to a yoga class last week for the first time in several months. In the past, I had a partner in crime that joined me in the downward/upward dogs but, this time I came to class alone.

I have to admit, I felt self-conscious, my body did not behave or stand up to the challenging postures as well as it had in the past. Time away = my muscles go on vacation. As the class went on I quickly recalled why I loved being there. Each person in the class was there for a common purpose. They had put aside “life” and noise and made a conscious choice to be present in our class.

Unlike the world that exists off the mat, there was no competition, no judgment, no clicks…. There was simply breath, restorative movement and a focus on calm. Repeating postures together, following each others breath; I began to feel community with these strangers.… Read the rest

Sadhana is defined as daily spiritual practice.

In my teacher training we are learning in depth about the importance of Sadhana.

There are 3 main components to the Aquarian Sadhana.

Jabji Sahib- works to connect the Spirit within

There is a scientific reasoning that lies behind this timing as well. The Schumann Resonance actually relates the Sun and the electromagnetic field to a human brain.… Read the rest

Great Health Benefits !

I just had my 70th birthday and I have been aware of the benefits of Gentle Yoga since I came to the Berkshires more than three years ago. My doctors confirmed these benefits, however, I still required blood pressure medication to lower my blood pressure.

This past Monday, I had to leave class right after meditation to drive to my medical appointment. After taking my blood pressure, and the numbers were the best yet, my doctor asked once again about my Gentle Yoga. I told her that I just left class and the effects were still with me. She replied, “This is wonderful. Take another session later today!”

My bone density reports were just as startling. Since doing Dahn Yoga my bone density had improved greatly!… Read the rest

I was always tired…

I’ve been going to Gentle Yoga for a little over a month now. With most fitness routines, I wouldn’t expect to see any improvement, but I have seen great improvement since I started going to Gentle Yoga. I was in a motorcycle accident a couple of years ago. The metetarsals in my foot were crushed and my ankle was fractured and dislocated. After 5 painful surgeries with pins, plates and grafts I could barely walk. Gentle Yoga has changed all that !… Read the rest
