Look Within
September 2018

Yoga Sutra 1.4
“At other times the seer identifies with objects seen”
The thing about enlightenment is that without constant awareness, the seer will go back to identifying with objects seen and forget the grander of the Soul.
Each time you identify with objects seen, you color the true nature of your consciousness.
The light is still there, only now it is being informed by the fluctuations of the impermanent nature of the outward world.
The lens of consciousness becomes murkier each time you mistake objects seen with the pure light of the Soul.
Only that which is found within is the path to enlightenment.
You are not this job, title, or culture etc. All things in the world are subject to change. What never changes is the everlasting glory found within. So for enlightenment to become a reality you must seek that which is everlasting.

One of my favorite Rumi quotes expresses this sentiment completely; “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lays down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.” The outer world is constantly changing. In order to find happiness we need to choose the path that does not change. By making a conscious decision to focus on what is immovable we gain insight into the state of non suffering.

3) Breath work/Pranayama
4) Sweat Therapy
5) Daily Journaling

TearDrop Support Master Class
September 22nd 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Diana’s School of Yoga is presenting the TearDrop Support Cushions Master class. In this class you will learn the benefits of it’s wonderful design and ability to allow passive stretching for body.
Here is what the distributors of this amazing prop has to say:

“The Teardrop Support is the most effective, comfortable and least expensive back arch available anywhere. Made using the same sturdy cotton canvas that we use in our studio quality round and rectangular Bheka Bolsters, these little organic buckwheat hull filled back supports are double stitched and built to last.

  The unique design of the Teardrop support enables it to open your upper back, support your mid back and traction your lower spine. The overall effect frees most back pain sufferers from discomfort.

While the most common benefit of the Teardrop Support Cushion is to open the spaces between the vertebrae, restore the natural arch of the spine and relieve discomfort, it is useful for opening the chest, expanding the lungs and relaxing the entire body.”
And to take it a stop further it’s unique design conforms to all area of the body allowing release in many other areas as well.
Since it involves passive stretching it makes designing your own home Yoga practice a dream!
When: Saturday 9/22
Time:   2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Where: Diana’s School of Yoga
Class Fee: $40.00
