The many phases of the moon are reflected in our hearts. One paradox is that we actually see the moon from the reflection of the sun, here is the mudra. Even in the word ha-tha sits both the sun and moon.

Funny enough I did not know Harry Potter was releasing #7 this weekend.. I guess the energy was embedded as there are so many things we have yet to see in ourselves and the world. While working to produce a NEW!! YOGA PODCAST called, Mudra Moments this week I found new features in wordpress which allowed me to add color to my posts..and what made me laugh is that it was pretty much always there but neither Elsie (congrats elsie for podcast 411 interview) or I saw it.

Notice in your life if you are not seeing that is right in front of you and send me an email to share

It is my practice these days to be more playful off my mat… yes, being serious is easy for me and my tendency is to keep it all together and have been watching lately how the universe is always at play eve when I am in thi splace of containment. I offer this class to you for the exploration of the Lila Tandava – “the playful dance of life” is always happening even when you are not aware of it – even at times of challenge.

Yoga can be fun – Boga Yoga does not always have to serious and we can allow this if we choose to… let yourself have fun and play today.

Being true to who you in the world on and off the mat is yoga. Even though we all wear many masks in one day there is always a part of ourself that is constant. See if you can honor yourself connect to this authentic part of you and if you are not being true to your heart forgive yourself and then take action to nurture yourself.

In the third chapter of the Bhagavad Gita there is a conversation about this and its presented as it as its better to fail at your dharma then do someone else’s – trying to become someone else takes more work and is not authentic to your heart. If you are not sure if you are being true to you then allow yourself to become quiet and see in any situation if you are being true to you, just ask and there will be a response.

Every time I prepare to teach a workshop I ask myself why I teach yoga, why I do yoga and how does it make a difference in my life. What comes up again and again is how I find my self-empowerment through my choices to align with my heart. The Gita states that we are better to fail at who we are then become someone else which to me means to be who we are and through this we can find our power knowing that we are being true to ourselves and make better choices from this place.

Even when I cannot find the access point of a pose I know with my breath and intention there is a shift which shows me it’s possible even if not on this day. Force does not lead us to a place where we are able to connect deeply to ourselves where power is what we hold deep within ourself which can influence and inspire others. When we soften, align and take action to do the best we can there comes a feeling of accomplishment even if we don’t get the textbook pose. See how you can empower yourself by taking care of yourself and make choices that support what you believe in on and off your mat
