Yoga by the Ocean!

This past Sunday, my regular Kriya Yoga class got cancelled so I went over to visit Yogini Dharma Shakti http://www.shalashakti.blogspot.com/  who teaches regular classes at Bluff Park in Long Beach.  Donation based Yoga seven days a week? Heck Yeah!

My Wife and a couple of friends came along and it was beautiful.  We laid our mats out underneath the shade trees and practiced our asanas as the ocean breeze kept us cool.  It was in the 100's that day so chillin in the shade was good but doing Yoga with new friends and someone you love in the shade.


Happy Yoga Month!

Shanti! Shanti! Shalom! SELAH! September 11th, 2001

Om Kriya Babaji Namah Aum!

It's the 11th day of National Yoga Month.  So, on the Sabbath of Creation, we give thanks to God (IAM)

OM! Mercy and forgiveness (Inhale) Exhale (Hatred and Anger) Shanti (Peace Loud) Shanti (Medium) Shanti (Soft) Shalom! Satnam! Sadhu! Tao! Em Aum Spirit! Kami! Swami! Amen! Aumen! Amin! Selah!

The word Selah in the Old Testament means is an anticipation mark like in music before something BIG and extraordinary happens!

SELAH for all those lost at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001!  Aum! (Breathe) We remember you but we DO NOT dwell in darkness of hatred! WE live in a spirit of Peace, extending love and brotherhood to all!

10 Breaths!

Om Kriya Babaji Namah Aum!

First Take 2 Breaths standing in Mountain pose and exhale into prayer pose!

Hey Y'all,
It's day 10 of National Yoga Month! Whoo Whoo!


Now, for all y'all living in Los Angeles I know that the air may be a little dark, a little dirty, a little stinky sometimes but breathe anyway!

Take two more breaths! Still standing in mountain pose gooooo to prayer pose. (Breath one) then goooo to swan pose! (Breath two)

Inhale Monkey pose! (Breath one) exhale fold!

Now for the next five inhalations! Lets go to Child's pose then downward facing doggie! (That's right I said Doggie) then into cobra pose back to downward facing doggie into plank!

Gooooo  slow if you want to!

Feel better? Good!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Back to Yoga!

Om Kriya Babaji Namah Aum!

Hey Y'all

How's Yoga month going?  I have not been practicing daily. Shame on ME right? Nah! I don't feel shame but I don't feel Good! I don't feel as energetic! I don't feel as flexible, and I can feel the aches and pains that I was not feeling when I practice regularly.

So, back to the Asanas! Maybe you are going through the same thing! Get back to it!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
