Memorial Day Weekend

As the Memorial Day holiday approaches, ceremoniously kicking off the summer, we thought you might like to know about some things happening at Wake Up Yoga this summer and into the fall. Circle these dates on your calendar, enroll early in the events that speak the loudest to your own heart, and plan to stay connected to your breath, your Self, and your source throughout the expansive days of summer. According to the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, the obstacles that arise and prevent us from practicing yoga (both on and off the mat) include: disease, dullness, doubt, carelessness, laziness, sensuality, false perception, failure to reach firm ground and slipping from the ground gained (Y.S.1.30). In the summertime, I could certainly fall prey to carelessness, laziness and sensuality ... and, at the end of summer, feel deeply distressed by an awareness of how much I've slipped from ground previously gained. It's imperative to continue to watch how your mind operates and, with discipline and faith, work steadfastly toward your goal. And if your goal is lazy afternoons sipping on margaritas at an outdoor cafe ... well, we'll be here with open arms ready and willing to embrace you whenever you wander back in. You are always welcOMe here!

In Love and Light,
