“Ramadān Mubarak, Blessed Ramadān!” to anyone who is observing the month of Ramadan. Keep your eyes open. Many blessings, also, to those who are Counting the Omer.

 “Looking at your world from Above, all is good.

Looking at your world from within, things don’t always look so nice.

Until you connect your world from within to the world above. Then the goodness flows downward without distortion.

How do you make that connection? By clinging tightly above. By putting all your trust in G‑d.”

 

– quoted from Tanya, Igeret Hakodesh 11 (pg. 232). Likutei Torah Chukat 62a (“From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory; words and condensation by Rabbi Tzvi Freeman.”)

 

Please join me tonight (Friday, May 7th) at 7:15 PM for a (mostly) seated “First Friday Night Special” yoga practice on Zoom. Use the link from the “Class Schedules” calendar if you run into any problems checking into the class. Give yourself extra time to log in if you have not upgraded to Zoom 5.0. You can request an audio recording of this practice via a comment below or by emailing myra (at) ajoyfulpractice.com.

 

This practice is accessible and open to all. It will include holding a series of poses and you may need something to take notes (but there is no “guided journaling” for this practice).

Prop wise, this will be a kitchen sink practice. It will be especially handy to have a large pillow or cushion (or two); a blanket or towel; and extra layers (as your body may cool down during this practice).

 

Friday’s playlist is available on YouTube and Spotify.

 

In the spirit of generosity (“dana”), the Zoom classes, playlists, and blog posts are freely given and freely received. Don’t feel “fourthed,” but please keep in mind that there’s still time to Kiss My Asana! Donations to the yogathon are counted for classes. If you are able to support these teachings, please do so as your heart moves you. (NOTE: You can donate even if you are “attending” a practice that is not designated as a “Common Ground Meditation Center” practice, or you can purchase class(es). If you don’t mind me knowing your donation amount you can also donate to me directly. Donations to Common Ground are tax deductible; class purchases and donations directly to me are not necessarily deductible.)
