Preservation

The last two months we have looked at the forces of transformation and creation. This month we will look at the force of preservation. This piece of the Hindu trinity is represented by Vishnu and Lakshmi.  The middle stage of the cycle can bring order and comfort, patience and perseverance. It is also where we

Creation

 “All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination.” Carl Jung Last month we talked about transformation and change. In the cycle represented by the hindu trinity, the next step is creation. We are all given creative power. Our minds create all the time, and

Transformation

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~ Gandhi Transformation. When you read that word what do you think of? I get images of a phoenix rising from the flames, a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, and silly toy robots that turn into cars. When I think of yoga and how

Namo

“We must make a connection with ourselves and others through reverence” Manorama  This month we wanted to focus on Namo, a sanskrit word meaning I bow, homage, reverence or respect.

Ānanda 2017

“….the bliss sheath, made up of pure joyous awareness.” -The Upanishads Ananda, or bliss in Sanskrit, is a part of our yoga practice.

Seva 2016

Every year in December we focus on Seva or selfies service. (to see my other blogs about it click here) It has become our winter tradition at River Lotus Yoga. “The Simple Path, Silence is Prayer, Prayer is Faith, Faith is Love, Love is Service, The Fruit of Service is Peace” ― Mother Teresa The

Dharana

Dharana is the 6th limb of yoga. It means concentration, or focus. Dharana is a large piece of creating a deeper relationship with your yoga practice. Yoga can be described as a practice in cultivating awareness. The deeper your ability to focus, the more awareness you gain. We practice Dharana as a way to work

Ahimsa

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ― Mother Teresa Ahimsa translates as  non-harming.
