Summer Walking Meditation



    While I went for my walk today instead of observing nature, I imagined the sky, trees and bees observing me. The result was an overwhelming feeling of gentleness coming from the natural world. This self care practice of taking refuge with a meditation walk nurtured my mind, body and soul within 20 minutes. I left the park with an open heart that was ready to receive the rest of my day.

For those of you who like to flow-Level 2/3 Vinyasa Yoga at Birchwood Center

Ardha Baddha Padma Padangusthasana/ Half Bound Lotus Tip Toe Pose Variation



   If you like to vinyasa flow through your yoga postures in a creative and mindful way please join us Tuesdays at 9:15am and Fridays at 9:30am for Level 2/3 1hr and 30min Vinyasa Yoga Flow classes with music at www.birchwoodcenter.com in Nyack, NY.

   Pictured here are posture variations we are currently practicing in class. These Garuda/Eagle pose type shapes are highlighted with circles to express the wavy and healing rhythms of these postures. When I practice these postures I feel circles moving through and around me. This may or may not resonate with you but the next time you practice vinyasa yoga pay attention to the shapes you feel are moving within and around you. Are they circles? Triangles? Squares?
