Healing for Haiti





Thanks to all that attended our Freedom Class to enter 2010. Here are a few photos.
Huge thanks to Sasha Cecile (Healing Drums) for creating the beat that we could all feel in our hearts and with our breath!
We are going to feel those good vibrations again with a fundraiser for Haiti on January 29th at 5:30pm. A Level 1 Ashtanga Class to Sasha's drum beat. The class runs as normal and donations may be given on top.
All donations will go to Haiti.
After, at 7:15pm, a led meditation. After that a silent auction with a few items given by our community.
Please show your support in an expression of joy and movement with the intention of bringing about world peace and restoring balance.

“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.”

retreat yoga is more than simply poses and

stretches, it focuses on calming the mind and strengthening the body. Therefore, instructors

always ensure a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone – from beginners through to

veterans. Rejuvenative yoga covers subtle techniques for creating an understanding of our body

through releasing tension, mainly from the hips and shoulders. When practiced traditionally

Astnaga Yoga is a 6 day a week exercise. Once introduced to the yoga, many find it inescapable

and integrate it as a regular activity in their daily lives. Those who practise yoga will

experience increased flexibility and toning of muscles. Yoga has also been proven to assist in

preventing illness and supports an entirely healthy and invigorated mind, body and soul. It is

important to realise we don’t need to buy something material to make us feel good. Yoga activists

acquire a sense of increased physical strength and flexibility, in addition to greater

concentration and general well-being. What could be better than treating your mind and body to an

intimate practise that serves to benefit your well being?
The opening prayer for the practice of yoga reads as: “Because I want more peace of mind and

stability in life, I faithfully practice yoga as it has been passed down by the gurus.” Yoga

allows for the creation of peace as well as physical, mental and spiritual awareness and

escapism.

Very nice environment the Freedom class have. I always wish to have such a environment for yoga practice but never get. Will you tell the time schedule of your classes.
