Namaste. I’ve been practicing and teaching Peace, Yoga, and Mindful living for many years. What comes out in class is from decades of going inwards. I love sharing what is rising in my practice and my day to day life of noticing more about this incredible world we live in. Peace -j

Repealing the law of gravity

Thanks to Valerie, we have a new word:  Blisscombubulated. That blissed, somewhat confused feeling where you come out of Shavasana after a particularly good Yoga class.  Our lost and found bin is always overflowing with 'forgotten' items.  Most of them make it back to their people. I've just posted the invite to the Yoga and Meditation workshop on Sept 27'th.   After a nice Heart Opening class, Ani Desal, a Tibetan Buddhist Nun, ordained by the Dalai Lama, will lead us in a beautiful meditation.  I hope you can join us, this level of meditation instruction is rare in our parts.   Take care!  I'll see you in class soon. john P.S.   just two spots remain in the fall Yoga Retreat I've got about 5 "maybes" for the two spots. Let me know right away if you'd like to join us.  to be fair to all, the first "Yes" gets the spots.

Jivamukti Yoga

Namaste, This weekend I'll be heading out to Woodstock NY to spend time with my teachers David Life and Sharon Gannon. David and Sharon are longtime yogis and founders of the Jivamukti style of Yoga.  Jiva means soul, and Mukti means liberation.  The Jivamukti yogi practices to become liberated in this lifetime, and to help all beings be free of suffering.  Next time you are in NY city, head up to Union Square and visit their beautiful Yoga studio. So next week I'll be having some wonderful substitue teachers cover our classes. Jyoti will be teaching the Monday 4pm Yoga and Nia for life class in Cocnord, the Tuesday 6:30pm Lumina class in Wayland, and the Wednesday Bosse classes in Sudbury.  Linda Seik will be teaching the Thursday 5:30pm Yoga class in West Concord.  The Monday Half Moon Hill class in Acton, and the Thursday 9am Maynard class will not be held next week. I've got some great workshops planned for the fall, and there are still a few spots open in our Fall Yoga Retreat in western Mass.  I'm looking forward to sharing what I learn when I get back, and hear how nice your classes with Jyoti and Linda were. Om Shanti,  I'll see you in class. john
