The Summer Day by Mary Oliver
Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous black eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll down through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
Welcome Summer and all its beauty! May your practice continue to blossom and grow!
The DVDs continue to always be available to you, and a fantastic way to begin your practice-and perfect for all levels of practice. The Senior Exercise DVD is great way to add a bit more strength work if needed to your routine. I’ve had even my adult student age group purchase this DVD. The Restorative/Yin DVD is excellent for any beginner or even any student interesting in yoga but may have injuries, or wanting to take advantage of a home practice.
I thank you for being my daily inspiration and for your continued love and support. The outpouring of messages that I have receive daily of sharing in your life moments, your changes in life, and most importantly your LOVE, are all so treasured by me. Those messages of love continue as MY moments…..I could not be more blessed than to have you in my life.
Group Class Updates:
Due to many time and travel constraints in these upcoming few months with travel back and forth to Chicago to tie up lose ends to my mother’s estate, I am so sad to no longer able offer my Tuesday/Thursday group class at Yoga Daya in Los Angeles. I am hopeful that by Spring/Summer 2016 to be able to return and offer group/public classes here again. In this time frame, I will only be teaching seniors and private/yoga class (for all levels yoga). Please contact me through my website or email for scheduling.
My intention is to continue to provide for you, to the utmost of my ability, the commitment to give you the most love and care in your practice. I forever remain indebted to each and every one of you, to enhance and grow your practices, so you may see and feel transformation in your lives.
You are very special to me, and it is an honor and a privilege that I do not take for granted. You have enhanced and touched my life in ways you I can only verbally share but do know your light is an inspiration to me each and every day. And I love you with all my heart.
Om Shanti Om Peace
