First Day Greetings!

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

It was a most magnificent morning at Yoga on the Beach as we kicked off our season.  The ocean was flat calm and the mostbeautiful shade of blue.  As Don begin to bring us to center and inward I was completely distracted by a pod of dolphins leaping behind him as if to say welcome back!   I breathed in their joy, and breathed out deep appreciation to them.

A slight breeze kept us cool, as the blue of the sky brought a sense of spaciousness to the practice.

Supine, Divine

As our practice took us onto our backs I looked up at the green of the pines, and noticed a few birds observing us as we stretched our legs and back.  The feeling of welcome was all around us.

Embraced by the warmth of the sun we continued our practice to honor the full moon today in moon salutation.   Opening the side body is such a delight, as we breathed through our ribs like gills opening and expanding all around our hearts.  Ahhhh!

Today I felt appreciation all around me in nature and with my fellow students.  Tomorrow I look forward to sharing this experience with you again, virtually or on the beach.

Namaste,
Nancy

Hare Pose

This morning as I was teaching class, seated in a rotation, I noticed something out of the corner of my eye.  I’m used to seeing birds fly by, hear the sound of the ocean, and have various forms of human life pass by but this morning my eye caught something very different.  I quickly focused in and realized it was a rabbit. Oh to the power of our animal kingdom showing up in yoga.

The class was headed in the direction of relieving tension in the spine, and here was rabbit to remind us of just that.  If you have not explored this pose in awhile here is a link to remind you of the pose, its benefits and counterposes.  Namaste to the Hare.
