Chair Yoga in La Jolla

Happy Spring Break!

During 2000-2001 I offered a year long Yoga Teacher Training Course at my studios, the Ashtanga Yoga Centers of San Diego. My student and friend, Corie Seibert, was a graduate of that course. Here in 2018 I have been happy to help cover classes for Corie, who has worked as a full time yoga teacher in San Diego these many years.

Casa de Manana is a beautiful retirement community on the ocean front of the city of La Jolla. Chair Yoga, as with most yoga asana, involves stretching, breathing, and body focus techniques. Many persons in the senior population are dealing with joint and balance issues. Chair yoga offers supported stretches while still providing movement through an extended range of motion, and a perfect seque into group meditation practice.

It was a pleasure to make the acquaintance of the lovely group of yoga students at Casa de Manana. I will look forward to returning to the Casa when additional “subbing” is needed.

 

Super Blue Blood Moon 2018

What a magnificent celestial event! Super in that the moon was near its closest point to the Earth, Blue as the second full moon to occur in the month, Blood created by the red tints of scattering light rays (similar to a sunrise/set), with an Eclipse, the passing of the moon through the earth’s shadow. A perfect occasion for celebration! Thank you to everyone who participated in our Super Full Moon Meditation and Sound Healing on the evening of January 31.

Drawing on my background in Meditation and Tibetan Buddhist techniques, we came together to practice visualization, chanting, and meditation at the Communitea Yoga Studio in Oceanside, CA. Jenn Paez provided her knowledge and expertise in offering a cacao elixir ritual and a gong healing bath. Our friend Dass performed beautiful native American flute accompaniment. By coming together as a community during special celestial events we are using our personal energies to align with and increase the benefits of cosmic light and love, for ourselves and our planet.

Many thanks to Tina Fitzgerald, director and owner of Communitea Yoga Studio, a beautiful space! We hope to see you all again for future celebrations of light and love.

Namaste
