November Message

SS_Girl-w-Sunflower.jpg

Happy November!
I am having an empirical experience

teaching a secular yoga class with an ordinary title.

We are opening the body, relaxing,
addressing tinges of pain that arise.  Contemplating self, accepting normal polarity

of mind, and recognizing our inner wisdom.

 

Many people  think of yoga as having to be limber,

spiritual, a much better person than I truly am,

and other exclusions.  When in truth it is an ongoing process of awareness exactly where we are
through the 
whole being.

 

The more ordinary, the more real and powerful 

the practice of yoga is helping us to play life
meeting each ongoing hill and valley with creativity.

 

However "you" are, that is how "your" practice is.

So if you are spiritual, religious, atheist, and every in between that is your gift to the world, your unique expression applied to your practice of yoga.

 

In acceptance of our own life path and the

expression of others we find more ease,

release of conflict and define what oneness
or interconnection
 is for our self. 

 

Thanks & Giving Wishes,

 Shelley

This month I recommend with all my heart:

Blossom Your Presence Online Practice

a treasure chest of  journeys, audios, videos, music, and stories to embody an ancient practice perfect for our Now time

creating a bright future.   

 

Practice at your own pace revisiting time

and again for expanding your being.

 

I am receiving rave reviews of breakthroughs and joy of practice.  End of year and holiday season are the best times for delving into your new beginnings and sharing these gifts

with others.

gave her final performance last month, October, 

after 30 years of stunning gifts to the art world 

via the human form expressing.

 

A Great Artist's Note to the World
 

Dance alone has held purpose for me.

It has been my silent partner all these years,my guardian angel.  

We communicate each day and like every relationship 
sometimes struggle to understand each other. 

 

Dancing has worked me to the extremes 
of exhaustion and exhilaration.  
It has given me anxiety and soothed me from it. 

It has nursed me through heartache.

 

Dance has asked me to define my individuality

and ultimately to redefine my own notions of beauty.  

 

It has made me aware of my ego 

and the complexities of having one.

 

Dance has shown me the beauty of humility.  

It has helped me develop a capacity for awareness,

to find beauty in so many fleeting moments.

 

To be a dancer is to work within an art form
that lives and dies in nearly the same instant 
and,
in this sense, 
offers powerful lessons in mortality.
