Spring Sounds of Silence - Days 1-7

 


Sounds of Silence started during the pandemic.  For me it was, and still is a way to connect to others near and far by sitting, reflecting and generating peace.
Here are the videos from this past spring session. I was recording to Facebook at the same time as on Zoom so the quality here isn't great but the audio is fine.  Since most of it is seated quietly I think you can still follow quite easily.  The videos with better quality though are on my Facebook page under videos: @plnyoga

Peace to you,
Pam

Spring Sounds of Silence - Sit with me in Silence - April 5th - 11th

 



Over this past year I have done a few online sessions called Sounds of Silence.  I felt it could be a great way to build a consistent meditation practice and feel connected to others at the same time. 

Spring Sounds of Silence will be held over 7 evenings on my Facebook page, @plnyoga and I will also be recording over zoom and uploading to my YouTube channel. If you can’t join live you can do at a time that is best for you.

Spring is a time of renewed energy and often an endless to do list. It can become very challenging to maintain a steady mind when we are thinking of so many things and during a pandemic even harder.

Let’s join together and bring our normal awareness, which can be quite cluttered with day to day thoughts to a more meditative awareness. 

If you would prefer to join me via Zoom instead of on my Facebook page please email me: info@plnyogastudio.com

Awesome April Playful Challenge




I have read this quote before, “One of the hardest things to do in yoga is unroll your mat.”

April, in North America anyways, shows more signs of spring, light and growth, I thought it would be a great opportunity to incorporate some Sun 🌞 Salutations into your daily or weekly practice.
This is just a playful challenge. Please don’t over do:) as it is more a time to give thanks to the sun for the energy it provides.
 In the videos I have tried to show a few options. If you join it may be helpful to keep a journal of not only the number of sun salutations done but also how your body felt, how the breath felt and what the mind was saying to you:). 

Video 1 - use of wall: https://youtu.be/UPPCXGcIiPQ

Video 2 - use of chair or counter: https://youtu.be/eJljLNLBr-Q

Video 3 - surya namaskar variations: https://youtu.be/fdD5RcQ3ZZA

Thanks for joining me..
If you would like, please let me know how you’re doing, any questions, variations you’ve come up with.
You can also let me know daily, weekly or monthly how many you’ve done and we can have a grand total at the end of April.

🙏🌞Pam 


I also put together this daily journal pages from others I had seen as a way to be more aware of other things I am doing in my day.  Am I getting enough water? How am I feeling? Did I laugh today?
