Yoga & Meditation Challenge


30 Day October 2016 Yoga & Meditation Challenge Yoga Kula Project, LLC

During the Challenge, our goal is to help each individual find a rhythm of daily yoga and meditation; however, each participant will set personal goals. For example, if you have an extremely busy schedule, your goal may be three sun salutations and 5 minutes of meditation daily. Whereas, another person’s goal may be one hour of yoga and one hour of mediation daily. All classes (Hot Pilates too!) in the studio are free during the month of October.30dayChallCompassion

During the month, we will be exploring recent cutting-edge neuroscience of the brain and the positive effects that researchers are finding with those who have a daily yoga and meditation practice. Moreover, several styles of meditation will be introduced, so you can choose the type, or types, that work best for your needs. If you are unable to attend all six special sessions, do not worry; just do your best.

Additionally, you will have month long support with dietary issues. Also, ongoing information will be available to support you emotionally and assist you with yoga and meditation.

All materials will be provided. All you have to do is sign up, create your goals and show up.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Trudee @ yogakulaproject@gmail.com or 435 659 6950. Deadline to sign up: Sunday 9/25/16. You can sign up with Trudee in the studio or call to reserve your spot.

 

The Difference Between Responsibility & Blame


It’s important to realize the difference between responsibility and blame.Adyashanti4 To take responsibility is to begin to shift your own emotional life, to see that it is our own conditional ideas and viewpoints that cause the majority of our suffering.  ~Adyashanti

Full-Scope Yoga Every Friday 6-7:30 pm


Poses~ Breathing~Meditation

Full Scope Yoga: A 90-minute class integrating a wide range of Yoga practices. This class is an immersion in meditation, drawing from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and Advanced Yoga Practices (AYP). FullScope

We offer yogis a foundation to enjoy the broad and profound benefits of daily practice. The intention of this course is to aid practitioners in establishing a personalized set of Full-Scope Yoga practices that will ultimately lead to greater clarity, joy, and bliss—expanding and enriching life—both on and off the mat.

The Full-Scope sequence begins with Asanas (postures), and gradually transitions into subtle levels of Being with Pranayama (regulation of breath, expansion of energy), Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation), and Samadhi (deep absorption). Samyama (a combination of Dharana, Dhyana, & Samadhi) is introduced gradually. Yamas and Niyamas (restraints and observances) are addressed in open discussion following the class.This class is held in room temperature.
By Donation (Suggested Donation = $20).

Anxiety and Finding Your Deepest Motivation


Daili L Pic

“You are so anxious about the future that you do not enjoy the present. You therefore do not live in the present or the future. You live as if you are never going to die, and then die having never really lived.” ~Dalai Lama XIV~

When I begin to feel the prickly burning of anxiety rising inside, it is my clue to stop and analyze my thoughts within the current circumstances. I ask myself, what is my deepest motivation in this situation? Can I honestly say that I mean no harm and that my motivation is sincere?  Looking at your true motivation will help reduce anxiety in your daily life.

For example, before teaching a class I periodically feel anxious about whether I can guide all of my students in a way that they can get the most out of their practice. I am not naturally comfortable in front of a group; however, I know that I have a lot to give. Giving, loving and healing others is my life’s purpose and teaching is my platform. So I ask myself, what is my underlying motivation? Why am I here? Is it money, power and fame? Or, is it a genuine interest in helping others participate fully and contribute to the world? Given this, I find my anxiety decreases because I know that, regardless of the outcome, my intentions are good; as such, I have faith that I will find the most effective way to express and pass on these values.

Next time you feel anxious, ask yourself: What is my deepest motivation? Then move from that space.

Vipassana


VipassanaWheelIt has been a little over one week since returning from my 10 day Vipassana and I am beginning to digest more of my experience each day. Vipassana is a style of meditation wherein you practice silence, do not eat after noon and spend most of the day meditating. The foundation of the teaching is to practice Sila; moral conduct, Samadhi; concentration of the mind and Pana; wisdom of insight.

There is a code of discipline that you vow to adhere to during the course. The code includes: abstaining from killing any being, stealing, sexual activity, telling lies and abstinence from all intoxicants.

I am forever grateful to my family, friends and teachers for their support and love while I was on this inner journey. Without their help, I could not have had this inspiring experience.

Thank You!
