OCTOBER VIEWS 2011 – What is Your Passion?

DSC 0427.213303Yoga is my passion. Simply stated, regardless of the question, yoga is usually the answer. It seems there is always a way to bring some element of yoga into a conversation. Feeling anxious? Do Yoga. Not sleeping? Breathe and meditate. Wondering about what direction to take your career? Dedicate your yoga practice with the intention to find guidance, then repeatedly ask yourself ‘what brings out the best in me?’

In those raw and quiet yoga moments, you can recognize your passion within you! Passion has energy. You will feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you. Then, you can use that burst of energy or excitement to move you through those things that hold you back from what you want. There will always be obstacles that try to get in the way of your happiness, so keep the big picture in view! When you need that bit of motivation to get you past the small stuff, remember what fires you up. Whether or not YOU love yoga, when you find a style and teacher that suits your lifestyle, you’ll tap into the answers of all life’s questions.

THANK YOU everyone for your support and contributions to my passion. Especially those fellow teachers and students who continue to grow with the studio and get involved with its random acts of ‘community’. (If you purchased a raffle ticket for the schoolhouse in Peru, you will enjoy this heart warming video of the ceremony announcing the winner of the free trip for two).

Many blessings to you all this month of Thanksgiving. Please note, the long weekend class schedule is slightly changed as per usual.

Love & Light

Student of the Month

LaurieBeveridgeOct11resized.132259Congratulations Laurie Beveridge! What a lady. Since 2006, we have enjoyed her presence at the studio and find it so rewarding to hear how positive a role the studio has played in her life. She writes, “I remember the day I came to Body Harmony to join the $99 special. Needless to say, I was hooked! There has always been a sense of community and sincere interest in encouraging you as a person, to be in a healthy place for yourself. All the teachers help you to find confidence in yourself and to listen to your heart. What stands out the most for me, are all the messages I hear that bring serenity to the demands of daily life. Whether it is a poem, reading or thought for the day, each teacher has a wonderful way of expressing their wisdom. I feel very grateful to have Body Harmony in my life, with Lori and all the wonderful teachers. I look forward to many more years of this journey and to seeing you there!”
