New York City Life on the Subway

New York City Life 
 

Cold and busy,  from Subway to streets then back.  Ecstatic, Invigorating.  Wrapped warm in a scarf I’m headed to our teacher training course. I get there too early,  3 hours ahead of our scheduled time . The streets are full and everyone seems to be in a hurry, the energy is vibrant and the air fresh.  New York City Life is a class room , connecting the diversity of life in all nationality’s.  I begin to walk like the rest, to keep up the pace, not sure why, but I’m in golfed in the hustle in bustle.

Energy through Inversions

Energy and mental faculties through inversions.Yoga is a tool that will aid in healing and bring mind and body into alignment. Energy is pumped through the heart with great ease in inversions.  The brain is refreshed and energized .Inversions slowdown the aging process through circulation of blood to the face. As we age gravity pulls us downwards, the body takes more effort to circulate blood to the upper torso. Inversions help bring attention to the mind and facilitate a deep cleansing of  the lungs through focused breathing while you balance the body on the head. Yoga is a practical application, […]

Yoga Back bending workshop in the Mountains of Florence with Patricia Walden

Italy and Yoga; two of my favorites. This summer I will be visiting Florence Italy to participate in an intensive back bending Yoga workshop with Patricia Walden, a long time student of BK S Iyengar. Her softness and ease into deep back bends is breathtaking. Learning the key elements of alignment into the directional pull of the spine release by the gravitational pull of the legs firmly into the ground are the foundations of a good release in back bends.

This Ramadan our Intermediate Class will learn the elements of an easy back bend from the workshop Intensive in Italy. https://iynaus.org/workshops/iyengar-yoga-workshop-tuscany-gabriella-giubilaro-and-james-murphy

Strong Women in Dubai

Embracing the unknown takes fortitude, the ability to discover your place and purpose.
My trip to Dubai for “Life Balance with Yoga” workshop. I discovered a “piece of my own story’ in each beautiful women I met. We were fortunate to have had this space in time to meet and discover our individual sense of purpose. Life has remarkable ways that create a perfect blend of ingredients that allow us to surrender into the unknown. Lessons to keep us whole and allow for growth and renewal.

Each day is an opportunity  to embrace a person we’ve never met, experience a place that […]

Work Life Balance through Yoga

 Through my personal life story,  I will reflect on the challenges faced leaving my country and embracing a foreign culture, in laws, and raising children with out familiar memories of my own childhood as a reference. The hurdles I faced alone with out the support of a mother or relatives, and also the homesickness that affected my health and sense of identity.
How I turned this misfortune into a sense of purpose. Through a vision of hope,  I discovered a balancing force that is with in and I channeled into an inner knowing and reconnected to this source.

We all have a […]

Connect and Reflect

Feet firmly on the mat, I’m ready to embark on a Yoga practice.   My intention still not clear, yet I have faith  it will unfold as I prepare myself for a strong hand balancing sequence.
I gracefully flow through  the Sun Salutations, connecting to the core I feel strong and capable. The practice begins to take shape and I am open and free. Pausing when needed , connecting and reflecting on the natural sequence, my inner awareness surfaces.  I seldom know where it will take me, or how my practice will end.

I am centered and  grounded, light and spacious, sitting silently […]
