OCTOBER VIEWS 2012 – Samsara

The term Samsara has a similar meaning within a few of the world religions. With the common theme depicting a "repetitive cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth” it seemed fitting to label our most recent saleSamsara. Knowing there is a natural continuous flow of creation, evolution and destruction in life, it makes our situation at Body Harmony a little...

SEPTEMBER VIEWS 2012 – Removing Obstacles

  With the onset of shorter days and cooler nights, here on the West Coast we feel that hint of change. Energetically, it’s wise to prepare the body and its system for the fall and winter ahead. Practices such as cleansing the diet, moving the body through Hatha and Yin yoga, and partaking in regular chanting sessions are all stellar for...

SUMMER VIEWS 2012 – Collective Consciousness & The Power of Intention

  Yoga business is an oxymoron. Like hot yoga, the two words beside one another seem to clash. Weaving a yogic and compassionate “support the community” attitude, with the logical and non-emotional “do what is best for the business” mentality, doesn’t always leave a yoga business person feeling at ease. Trusting that there can be a balance between the two, it has been nearly 10...

JUNE VIEWS 2012 – A Guide to Gurus

  If talk of a guru seems a little serious, I would say “Au contraire, it’s a matter of perception.” A guru may be simply defined as "someone who removes your goo" or "a person who guides you to the light." The Sanskrit term itself literally means heavy (implying a heaviness of knowledge), but metaphorically speaking, a guru helps to "find...

MAY VIEWS 2012 – May We Honour Mother’s

The first few years of our life, we are completely dependant upon someone to care for us. Most often that primary caregiver is a woman. A clever Oprah quote reads, “Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother”. What I take from this today, is that mothering goes far beyond bearing a child and that bearing a child doesn’t...

APRIL VIEWS 2012 – Listen & Respond

  The human body has positive and negative feedback mechanisms. When listened to with awareness, it gives us an opportunity to learn and grow. The response our body gives during an asana in yoga practice, gives an indication of what needs to be done next. If the feedback offered brings us happiness, then we can continue to enjoy the breath while...

MARCH VIEWS 2012 – Serenity Now (A Sale for You)

  Since reading The Four Agreements Companion Book years ago, it continues to serve as a great reminder of the following: 1. Be Impeccable With Your Word 2. Don’t Take Anything Personally 3. Don’t Make Assumptions 4. Always Do Your Best A tough act to follow, but where there’s a will there’s a way! For now though, I would like to bring attention to the third...

FEBRUARY VIEWS 2012 – Healthy Hearts

The heart is the center or middle point of the human chakra system AND at the studio this week we are mid-way to accomplishing the Journey of Our Hearts! For those who are not partaking in this program, might I share that this journey is varied and unique for all of us who are taking it. Just as there are...

JANUARY VIEWS 2012 – Footprints

It’s been an interesting year! World events aside, recent developments in our little world have brought yet another need for change. With a baby girl taking her first few solo steps, it seems somewhat symbolic that I too need to step forward. January will mark nine years of operating Body Harmony Yoga, and this anniversary will start with the Journey...

DECEMBER VIEWS 2011 – Gift of Light

Christmas has evolved into something different for me over the years, and I believe this to be common. It is ultimately a celebration, with a few days off and time to spend with family and friends. However, it is a holiday that isn’t always anticipated by all. To surpass any ‘inner Grinch’ this holiday season, connect with what’s most important. Move...
