This Thursday October 27th is the end of the current Flow Yoga session at Burnside Gorge Community Centre. The new session starts right away on November 3rd and will end on December 15th.
The class has grown this fall and I have been offering pose options for new and experienced students. It is up to each person to set their pace, and mixed level classes can be a great way to learn about your ego, accept your current state of being and look forward to progressing!
Classes are open to drop in, registration or punch card holders.
In BC the seasonal change and annual harvest is here. This is a great time to feast and feel grateful for so many things that enrich our lives.
For me the attention on gratitude extends to other days through the year. Each day after meditation or asana I take a moment of appreciation for something in my life. Some days I sit and wait before I shift my perspective and find appreciation, while other days I am flooded with boundless joy and gratitude for everything around me.
While I have enjoyed this daily, others make a birthday list with as many inspirations for gratitude as their age. Some keep journals to look back upon when they feel blue.
I have enjoyed a few years of this daily practice and wanted to share some of the things that bring me joy.......... warm meadows the earth and its nourishment my family (all of them for their open hearts and each of them for the individual teachings they offer) good, clean food water (clear, oceans, tears, rivers) the chance to walk in the forest (the smell of trees & dirt) the sounds of wind in the trees mom teachers I have known, past and present dear friends the sun dad the chance to see my nephew as a young boy music (the rhythm, the harmony) yoga the chance to love and be loved Cam, my partner the plants the fungi the animals chocolate Tilia Cedar Loved ones who have passed on walking the path with plants the students who share their journeys time spent in the wilderness lessons from bear, cougar, moose and deer songs from loons
