Peace Practice - March 4th - A Gift of Sight

Peace Practice - March 4th

Image result for images sight
I would be happy if you could join me on Friday, March 4th for a Yoga Practice to support peace.
Peace for yourself, for others and all sentient beings.

Class is all-levels and by donation. Space for the class is donated by Yoga Sublime Studio.

Class time: 5:30-6:30p.m.
Location: Yoga Sublime Studio - Prince Albert

Each month students suggest a charity for the monies raised to be donated too and we pick at the class.
This month A Gift of Sight was suggested to me before the class.
This is for Kevin Naidoo, a yoga teacher from Saskatoon.  He has taught the Love, Light, Liberation workshop at Yoga Sublime in the past and is returning March 13th.

As he is coming this month it seemed a great suggestion.

Kevin was diagnosed with glaucoma a year ago. He has lost the sight in one eye and has about 40% in his other eye.  As he is still a young man, traditional treatments will not work so he has been accepted for treatments that will cost $30,000.

A gofundme page has been set up and there is a fundraising event in Saskatoon for him also.
You can check out the page at:

Once again, I hope you can attend this class.
Please pre-register by Thursday, March 3rd.

Thank you.

Peace practice - February 2016

February's peace practice donations went to the Prince Albert S.P.C.A.
Thank you to those who were able to come out and share in this evening class to promote peace within.  What we feel inside will be reflected outwards.

As all sentient beings are important it is wonderful the donation is going to support animals in our community. 
Please check out the link below for more information on the s.p.c.a. In our area. 

Thank you to Yoga Sublime for the donation of the studio for this class.

Creating Freedom

I just finished reading an article called "Creating Freedom", by Lynn Holt. 
Lynn is a senior Iyengar instructor from Australia and has lived in India for some time also. 
I have not studied with her but have gained insight from many of her articles.

This one started with focusing on how discipline and cultivation of character will end with freedom.

To discipline ourselves at the beginning means sacrifice, hard work and usually giving up something.  We often fail because we see others doing things and we feel we are suffering and being restricted because we have to stick to this discipline. 

But all disciplines also have their many rewards, whether it is in the arts or sciences.

Lynn writes, "Freedom comes when the disciplined action is converted with rigorous discipline into natural action."

So what begins maybe as regimented practice becomes a passion and joy and that transformation ends our struggles.  The intelligence begins to spread into the body and not remain in the mind.

Lynn writes that, "It is only when we ask ourselves: What am I doing? Why am I doing it that our minds will open.  This is self-awareness."

When was the last time you spent time reflecting on the things you do and why. 
Lynn writes, "The moment we are attentive to our practice, we create something with life and energy.  Awareness allows us to overcome tiredness and exhaustion in our poses and also in our lives."

When that calm, clarity comes from a yogic mind one is more stable and content and has created inner freedom.

Thanks to Lynn for her insightful article. Namaste.
