๐ŸŒˆHappy Pride Month!๐ŸŒˆ We celebrate and uplift LGBTQ+ culture and identities! We also recognize that inclusivity, like yoga, is an ongoing practice. Yoga is, from its roots, in support of inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility. In this workshop with Pooja Virani, we discuss how yoga and community spaces can be more LGBTQ+ inclusive through the lens of modern social movements and ancient history. Join us to dive deep into tools we can use together to make our yoga and community spaces braver and safer for LGBTQ+ folx while honoring yoga's cultures and traditions.

Pooja Virani is a Pain-Free Movement Specialist and Social Justice Consultant on a mission to spread joy, foster equality, and help people reach their highest potential. A former International Development & Nonprofit Management professional, she facilitates Social Justice training for yoga, community organizations, and businesses and leads yoga classes and discussion groups for LGBTQ+ and BIPOC persons.

I got to do one of my most favorite things this morning: teach gentle yoga for Sun & Moon Yoga Studio .

I haven't introduced myself in a long, long time... so I thought I'd say "hi!"

I'm Jen. I specialize in blending ancient wisdom with contemporary spiritual psychology to help folx of all stripes cultivate the inner resources of resilience, courage, and genuine happiness โ€” what I see are the survive and thrive skills for the 21st century.

More specifically, I've been teaching yoga and mindfulness in the Washington, DC area for nearly 20 years. Of course, these days all the magic happens here in my tiny yoga room via Zoom.

I'm also an Internal Family Systems (IFS) practitioner. I taproot empathy, compassion, and mindful listening to help spiritual seekers process uncomfortable material surfaced in their practice. We can't bypass these feelings. In fact, when we lean in and heal old wounds, the spiritual path breaks wide open. What comes next is endless.

Social media is so weird. I can't really see you, but I want to know you. If you feel inclined, drop a few nuggets in the comments about yourself. Like the caterpillar in *Alice in Wonderland* says, "Who aaaaare yoooouuuuu?" ๐Ÿ› ๐Ÿ˜Š
I'm offering a little mini-workshop this Sunday on the contemplative practice of Lojong - pithy aphorisms that tilt the mind towards compassion.

I'm grateful for the generous support of Sun & Moon Yoga Studio for hosting this program. Sign up to join live or watch the recording here: http://bit.ly/393Cix2

Sun & Moon is about connection: minds to bodies, yoga practice to wellness, and people to each other. Our teachers have been supporting and embracing every individual who walks through our locally-owned, community-supported doors since 1994.

JOIN US! Sun & Moon Yoga is about connection. We connect minds to bodies, yoga practice to wellness, and people to each other. We keep room temperatures in the comfortable 70s, so the body generates its own inner heat at a natural pace. Students can commit to a regular weekly class, grab a flex pass good for six months in any class, or opt for an unlimited membership to come as often as they like.

SILENCE.
Whether you are new to meditation or an established practitioner, this workshop is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a series of guided meditations and short periods of silence. Both provide a respite from the pressures and concerns of daily life, a wise perspective on troubling realities, as well as a space to simply be; be with yourself; be in humble community with others; and be silent. Join @marjorieames this Sunday in studio or from home. Youโ€™ll be glad you did.

UKRAINE ๐Ÿ’”
โ€ฆ
Ukraine is on our minds this week as we watch with horror and heartbreak all that is unfolding. In the midst of crisis, whether near or far, whether personally affected or not, it's important to pay as much attention to the way events lodge inside us as we do to the events themselves. If we ignore the news, we lose the ingredients for caring, but if we consume the information without taking time to process and digest the tension, fear, despair, or anger it may provoke, we risk a level of overwhelm that leaves us unable to respond usefully.
โ€ฆ
Teacher and scholar Stephen Cope describes the two pillars of yoga as clear seeing and calm abiding. We can use the tools of mindfulness to stay informed, movement to stay grounded, and breath to remind us that we are all profoundly connected. If your heart is breaking, if your gut is clenched in fear, if your thoughts are hot with anger: take some long breaths, lie down on the floor and stretch your body, or stand on your feet and feel your strong roots; take a walk with a friend or come to yoga class. And with every act of self care and outreach, bid a grateful welcome to your beautiful, interconnected soul.

SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
โ€ฆ Life is a sensory tour, and along the way we amass sensory souvenirs that of likes, dislikes, cravings, avoidances, and So. Many. Feelings. Emotion and memory are engines with powerful sensory ignitions โ€“ play me one bar of Madonna's "Get Into the Groove," and I'm instantly back in 1985, dancing in a dive bar in Syracuse with a lacy bow in my permed hair and a dozen black rubber bracelets climbing up my sleeve.
*
In mindfulness practice, we focus on what we sense in the moment โ€“ย signposts of presence. While meditating, presence creates inner trail guide so we donโ€™t get lost in the woods of anxiety, confused in the forest of distraction, or pushed off depression's cliff. On a yoga mat, presence keeps our joints and muscles injury-free, and our systemic bodies on track for therapeutic reward.
*
Those familiar with yoga's eight-limbed path know that โ€œpratyharaโ€ means "withdrawal of the sensesโ€ โ€“ย are we getting it wrong to notice what weโ€™re sending? Not at all!
*
To withdraw the senses is to arrest the reactivity that assigns value or preference to sensory inputs. It's the ability for a veteran with PTSD to hear a balloon pop and recognize theyโ€™re safe at home rather than back in battle; it's the freedom to smell the waft of someone's cigarette and not derail a decade of smoking abstinence; it's the enjoyment of your favorite song without re-living the sorrow of the breakup it accompanied.
*
The Greek poet C.P. Cavafy expresses a beautiful sensory reconciliation in "Ithaka," where the mythical journey home makes room for "many a summer morning ... [and] many sensual perfumes." But when we finally arrive in our truest home โ€“ the one enshrined in silent presence โ€“ it has "nothing left to give you now ... wise as you will have become ... "
*
Here, in the Ithacas of our hearts, we are at once the sum of all we've enjoyed and endured, grounded in the depths of a clarified mind that glistens with a universal light, entirely senseless and completely alive.

Posted @withregram โ€ข @diannebondyyogaofficial The Path to Equity: Yoga for Every Body with me!

The best part about this weekend is that you can take it online with me or in a class setting @sunandmoonyogava

You can come for 1 class or come for the whole program!

First we UNPACK! Who we are, both on and off the mat!

Second, we learn. Yoga is for every body, so how do we do that? How do we change our classes, our studios and communities to address the fact that every body is not being included?

Lastly, we apply what we have learned! This is an ongoing and collaborative learning experience and discussion.

Check the ๐Ÿ”— below ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿฟ for more information.

GET REPTILIAN WITH US!
๐Ÿข
What do reptiles and restorative yoga have in common? Brumation! Brumation is a period of dormancy, similar to hibernation, during which an organism becomes physically inactive. It is an adaptive strategy, used by some cold-blooded animals like reptiles and amphibians to survive cold temperatures.
Restorative yoga is a style of asana during which slightly atypical or challenging shapes for the body are held for long periods of time, and supported by props to facilitate ease and relaxation.
So, a human-and-herpetofauna-inclusive definition of brumation might be: a state of productive inactivity in a cozy spot during cold weather.

For a snake, that cozy spot might be a hibernaculum in a sturdy rock wall; for a turtle, perhaps a burrow in the mucky bottom of a pond. For a human, that cozy spot can be a yoga mat (or soft rug, or even a bed) surrounded by blankets and pillows.

How is brumation productive? Simply put, it allows us all to survive.ย Without it, some animals wouldnโ€™t make it through the winter; and, without the physiological and mental benefits of allowing our bodies productive relaxation, human life is a bit more of a struggle.

YOGA ON EVERY CORNER
โ˜€๏ธ
Against a blazing red sunset through the trees in my little semi-urban neighborhood, I fell in stride with a neighbor. I was with my dog, a block's distance behind this person, so I couldn't see much detail, but I saw enough to know that none of customary reasons for an afternoon walk seemed to apply โ€“ no pet on a leash, no child on a bike, no briefcase or headphones, no jogging suit or tennis shoes, and no discernible hurry toward any particular destination.
*
Just a person in khaki pants, street shoes, and a coat, out for a leisurely stroll. That much isn't remarkable, but the notable thing was what happened at each corner: my stranger-friend stopped, reached arms up to the sky, folded forward, bent their knees, and reach up tall again, followed by a crescent-shaped stretch to one side and then the other. And then they carried on, presumably catching glimpses of the same dramatic sky out ahead.
*
Before the pandemic, I used to muse about the proliferation of yoga studios popping up on every corner, wondering how it would shake out economically and socially, wondering if yoga communities would disperse to the point of evaporation. Then Covid happened. People found endlessly creative ways to practice, and being in community took on new dimensions. Yesterday my sense of yoga on every corner also took on a new dimension, and it was the loveliest sight to see, second only to the glorious sunset in the backdrop.
