To Unravel the Mystery of Self
June 2020
 

Yoga Sutra 2.45

2.45 From an attitude of letting go into one’s source (ishvarapranidhana), the state of perfected concentration (samadhi) is attained.
(samadhi siddhih ishvarapranidhana)
To surrendering to the Self means understanding and knowing that this moment right here and right now is Divine Perfection. 
We are no longer bound by earthly desires when we come into the awareness that those experiences exist only in the temporal realm.
The true Self is eternal.
Knowing this truth means understanding who you are, and what your purpose is in this life.
We are Divine and are of God!  
Those who don’t recognize this knowledge may think, that it is not your truth nor anyone else’s truth that you know. But that is the great illusion.
To seek this Truth will peel back the layers of misconception to reveal all that has been sought and understand its revelations of joy and enlightenment.

Six foot distancing will require that we can only provide practice for 10 students per class. It will require signing up online at our website or through the Mindbody online App.
The reception area can only take one student at a time.
Those waiting will have to wait in their cars or 6 feet apart in the porch or parking lot area. (If it’s hot please wait in your cars as the heat might raise your temperature.)
Six feet of distancing will be required upon leaving.
We will no longer provide any yoga props such as towels, mats, blocks etc..
You will need to bring your own water.
Masks and hand sanitizer will be available. 
Hand sanitizing will be required for entering and leaving the studio.
All surface areas touched or used during the class and class processing will be throughly cleaned between classes. 
We will be sending out a survey through SurveyMonkey to get your opinions on what would you require to feel comfortable practicing yoga at our physical location.
Please help by completely the survey and sending it back as soon as possible as it is time sensitive.
We will continue to offer online classes for the foreseeable future.You will be able to register for these classes at MIndBody online or at our website.

5 Tips to Reboot Your “Get Healthy” Motivation

• Try reverse psychology
• Skip the long aerobic workouts
• Use a “cheat day” rule
• Get a workout buddy
• Make 3 simple rules for yourself

Try a Little “Reverse Psychology”

  • Read “The North Beach Diet” by Kim Bailey
  • Stop Dieting and Start Living
  • Increase Weight, Belly Fat and Thunder Thighs
  • Gain 10 lbs. in 48 Hours
  • Eat all the Carbs and Fat you Want
  • Eat Batter Fried Twinkies & Snickers
  • Eat Butter Smothered Steaks with Melted Cheese
  • Watch TV Non-Stop for 6 Hours at a Time
  • Sit for as Long as You Want
  • Avoid ALL Exercise Especially Weight Training

This is a hilarious read and you may find yourself unwittingly swearing off the bad behaviors so closely linked to obesity.

Skip the Long Aerobic Workouts

  • Current research shows that shorter high intensity workouts may have a more profound impact on overall weight loss vs. long duration, low intensity aerobic workouts. The reason is the after burn, an elevated metabolism that’s higher long after the workout is over. So if pressed for time, high intensity interval training will give you more bang for your buck.

  • Think in terms of all out effort with whole body dynamic movements for 30 seconds and then rest until you feel ready to go again. Aim for 6 to 10 cycles of this pattern.

  • Still incorporate LSD workouts (long-slow-distance) maybe twice a week just to mix it up. Every training modality has a place and a purpose in your exercise regimen.

Use the “Cheat Day” Rule

  • Allow yourself one day a week where you can eat whatever you want. What is that one food you have been denying yourself throughout the week?

  • This does not mean you gorge on 6,000 calories all at once.

  • Psychologically this has a scientific basis by deterring the body’s natural survival mechanism to overindulge after an extended deprivation cycle. Knowing you can have a treat and enjoy some of those “forbidden foods” makes it easier to stick to the plan the other 6 days.

  • You’ll also be less likely to cheat uncontrollably knowing that cheat day is around the corner.

  • You’ll be highly motivated to get back on track after indulging.

Get a Workout Buddy
  • Research shows that good social support via accountability partners is vital for long term exercise adherence.
  • Hire a trainer, engage your child to come alongside you or find a friend with similar exercise goals and time schedule.
  • We are almost always more accountable to somebody else than we are to ourselves.
Make 3 simple Rules for Yourself
Making your own personal health rules can better guarantee your success.
  • Keep them simple, specific and reasonable.

  • Create exceptions to the rule ahead of time.

  • Examples of rules; never drink my calories, do some form of exercise every day, no unscheduled treats except on cheat day, get 10 minutes of sunshine a day, no eating after 8:00 pm, drink 8 oz. of lemon water first thing in the morning etc.

Pose of the Month for June
Ardha Bhekasana/Half Frog with support

Place a support like a bolster, block or folded blanket just outside of the right side of your mat. Lie on you belly. Place your right knee on top of the support. Move your arms out like the letter “T”. Bend your elbows so that your elbows are in line with your shoulders and your hands are in line with the elbows. Turn your head to the right. Stay at least 5 minutes. Then switch to do the other side.
