Shine, Yogis and Yoginis Shine!

Shiva, The Great Yogi
Warm greetings and salutations to the Hatha Yoga Teacher Trainees at Yoga for Today!  

Thank you all for your time and enthusiastic participation in this weekend's Yoga Philosophy classes.

Here is the link to my previous blog post on the Mahamrityunjaya mantra - The Mantra for "Great Liberation" otherwise known as the Om Trayambakam.

And the quote I mentioned from Marianne Williamson:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

----from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.
Thank you to those of you who submitted your Yamas and Niyamas assignment yesterday.  I look forward to reading them.  They will be available for you to pick up from the front desk by Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

And Congratulations!  In addition to fulfilling the philosophy requirement for your Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program, you've completed 15 hours of study toward my FREE Apprenticeship Program certificate!  I look forward to your application!  Jai!

  1. Tara, you really caught my attention with a comment you made... that sometimes you feel like everyone around you is already perfectly enlightened and simply tolerating and waiting for you to join ^_^... OM
