“According to the yogis, there is no gem like the peace of mind and ultimate joy that we can attain through spiritual practice, and non-attachment.”
– Sharath Jois

Maha Shivaratri: Febraury 21
- LED PRIMARY SERIES SUNDAY 2.16.20
- 8:30-9:50 LED PRIMARY SERIES CLASS
- 9:55-10:30 CONFERENCE: MERIDIANS AND ASANA
“Where there is no movement there is pain. Where there is movement there is no pain” ~Old Chinese saying
“According to Chinese medicine, meridians are the pathways through which Qi, Blood, and the various body fluids flow. Meridianology is the foundation for many Chinese Medicine concepts and practices such as acupuncture or Gua Sha. … Meridians are the pathways that run vertically through the body.” ~www.meandqi.com › journal › what-are-meridians-in-chinese-medicine
I’m continually fascinated by the gems and correlations between different traditions of eastern healing. In Chinese medicine the science of the meridians has unlocked many mysteries for me.
In conference we’ll take a close look at standing forward fold (padottanasana), Mariciasana B, and headstand (sirsasana) with respect to the merdians that are stimulated by the poses. I can’t wait to teach this one. I hope you can make it!
Coming this Sunday our Karen will be hosting the first Family Constellations event of 2020 at Buffalo Sem. For those of you looking to deepen your spiritual understand of healing through not just yoga but our family networks join us!
I’ll be there and I hope you can make it! See below for details.
How are you? How is practice?
We had a great Fundamentals of Classical Yoga workshop this month and coming in March (more info soon) we’ll have a Part two follow up. Stay tuned.
February 21 is Maha Shivaratri, the festival to celebrate the God Shiva.
“Shiva is also known as the destroyer, and he is seen as someone who protects and transforms the universe. The festival is celebrated with street performances, colourful masks representing Shiva and colourful paints and lights. It also sees worshippers fast, pray and sing hymns to Lord Shiva”
It’s one of my favorite holidays in Hindu cultureand a great time to honor the death cycle and how it brings us new life.
We’ll be working through a steady February. I wish you a steady mind and a steady practice!
See you on the mat soon.
