monday moment of zen

"either the goal of yoga is to be free, or the goal of yoga is to get it right. you can't really have it both ways. because if you choose freedom, you have to divest yourself of that crazy idea that you have to get it right."

perfect morning

my day started out with being gently woken up by a thunderstorm. i love thunderstorms! i woke up feeling great! i immediately rolled out my yoga mat, sit on it and began to breathe deeply. i moved my body gently to stretch it after my long sleep. and after waking, i took another seat to meditate. after sitting for a little while i got up and made a mug of jasmine green tea.

now that's the kind of wednesday morning i love!!

Love + Spring = True

"the secret of attraction is to love yourself. attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. they are open to gestures of love. they think about love, and express their love in every action. they know that love is not a mere sentiment, but the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe."

weekend warrior series offered at blissblissbliss

Spend part of your weekend progressing through a blissful blend of Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga.

9:30-10:30am Get started with a dynamic Vinyasa practice. This flow will challenge and heat the body and burn away anything you no longer need.

10:40-11:40am Melt into a Yin practice. Yin is a series of poses, held for a longer period, while one sends their intention, breath and consciousness to the bodily sensations. This draws the life force (prana or chi) into the deeper meridians which stimulates the immune system and rejuvenates the whole body.

11:50am-12:50pm Completely let go with a Restorative practice. Indulge in an hour of held, supported postures to facilitate deep relaxation and bring the body back into balance. This is the antidote to stress!

12:50-1pm End your time on the mat in a meditative state with a FREE 10 minute guided meditation.

Weekend Warrior is a dynamic balance of both yin and yang: action and repose, activity and receptivity, movement and stillness. And since these classes are separate you can mix and match (or stay for all 3) and choose what kind of Warrior you want to be!

Class dates are November 6th & 27th.

(Please note that all 3 classes will end in Savasana so if you are only able to get in one class you will have a complete practice. Use your blissblissbliss yoga pass - one punch per class.)

monday moment of zen

"when we are in pain, we become self-centered and myopic. when we heal, we become more empathetic, self-less, and sympathetic to the pain and welfare of others. it is our gift to others to heal ourselves."
