::Western Philosophy ::
Silence In: "Hatha/Kundalini/Tantra Yoga":
Strength comes in so many different forms from little to big,
internal to external, mental to physical, and the list goes on and on.
Regardless of what your strengths are, they all come from the
same place: an idea. It takes strength on all levels to execute an
idea and put it into action. It's commitment that fortifies that
strength and brings you to the next chapter...
Once you have taken your idea and been strong enough to put it
into motion, the real work can begin. (This is where we all get to be
legitimate scientists.) You can start to embrace the outcomes of
your new experiment and deduce which outcome works best for
you, thus leading you to...
One way or another, and whether you like it or not, you will be
forever changed. Any time we take action, or commit to an idea, we
change who we are. The true beauty of commitment, the one we
are never taught, is that Commitment itself is always changing.
All you need is faith in yourself and the strength to carry you
forward to make commitment the beginning rather than the end.

Commitment: a word
that means so many
different things to us on
so many different levels,
but in the end comes
down to one very
permanence. Why is it
that we fear committing to
something means that we
are settling as a person
and the journey ends
This quarter I challenge you
to commit to yourself on a
greater level and to view the
word commitment in a
whole new way.
Many years ago, I designed
a tattoo that would hold
meaning the rest of my life;
a bookmark for all my years
to come for all the chapters I
was to live. I committed to
symbols representing the
truths of my life: Strength,
These symbols remind to
be true to myself and
commit to living my life in
the way that is best for me:
Commitment does not have
to be the end result of
something, it can be the
beginning of something, but
we are often programmed to
see it otherwise.
I am not encouraging
anyone to go out and get a
tattoo, as that in itself is a
commitment all its own. I'm
just sharing my personal
Let the challenge begin!
:: New Classes at YAS Silverlake:: Oct 2013
YFA- (Yoga For Athletes)
Ever wanted to join a yoga class, but felt like you just didn't have the
skills to follow? Or maybe you used to be a prime time yogi but have
recently gone rogue and are looking to get back up and running.
Whatever the reason you are considering yoga, this class is for you.
Yoga For Athletes is an all levels class that is great for all bodies and
body types. Designed with a set sequence, you never have to fear
being contorted or bent into a pretzel. You can rest easy knowing you
will understand the poses each class, and yet still be challenged. The
rooms are slightly heated to help warm up the body, and props are
available for extra support.
These new classes are completely inline with my style of teaching, so
expect to be challenged, pushed outside of your comfort zone, and to
sweat. In the end, we will have a good laugh, and get ready to do it all
over again next time. See you on the mat!
Can't make it to a
class or just
short on time?
