FEBRUARY VIEWS 2009 – Heart Month

Heart MonthLife is interesting. We have the opportunity as human beings to expand our knowledge and awareness in so many ways. We can read books, watch movies, listen to music and communicate with technology. We can connect with animals, learn from the wise and travel to explore other cultures. Furthermore we have the ability to do all these things with love. To allow love into our experience brings a whole new dimension to life!

February is heart month and the heart is our vital organ to live and to love. If you started this year (or any) with good intentions but have somehow gone awry, redirect your efforts every chance you get. At Body Harmony we are on the last month of the Journey of Our Hearts – Seven Renewal Practices program, so even if you fell a little short of your personal goals or expectations, I encourage you to ‘get back on the horse’.

Finally, please share your love of yoga with others and forward the Valentines ‘2 for 1’ Special. Two new members each receive 10 Class Flexi Passes for the price of $140 plus tax ($70 each). This sale is on now until February 16th and applies to new members only. Share the love.

Have a happy heart month and give a hug today!

Students of the Month

Students of the MonthCongratulations to Cheryl Todd and Dana Golden, the dynamic duo we are recognizing this month. As a personal trainer, Lori had the pleasure of working with Dana at Hollyburn Country Club years ago. When Body Harmony opened in 2003, Dana enthusiastically brought her sister Cheryl to yoga and they have been sharing yoga together ever since. Dana says, “Well, as I tell all my friends who ask what I do for fitness these days, I say I am dedicated to yoga for its amazing ability to enhance your emotional, mental and physical well-being. I am always surprised by how much I don’t know, and how every class is a lesson in itself. I love the solitary challenge of the practice in the midst of harmonized energy. I love the depth of concentration in a realm that has nothing (and everything) to do with our real lives. And I love how I walk taller and stronger after every class. That sense of well-being, the joy of fluid movement, and the calm peace of mind is why I will always come back.” Cheryl adds a personal note of gratitude to the studio by saying, “It has really been my privilege to practice with you over these last years. I love to start my week with one of your classes, as much for my mind as my body. And of course I love to finish the week with a class on Friday. You always go out of your way to make our practice interesting, be it with a new pose, a new Sanskrit word or a reading. And of course your loving energy is always surrounding us as we practice. I LOVE MY YOGA!!!!!” What a blessing to have these ladies with us all these years!

Yoga For Our Planet with Bernie Clark

Yoga For Our Planet with Bernie ClarkWhat is really going on with our environment? What do the scientists say is happening versus what the media and our politicians say?

Ancient Yoga traditions have many teachings on how we can live in balance with our environment. These traditions can be applied to the environmental challenge facing us today.
