tree-photo-looking-up

Inviting our yoga community with scoliosis to come together this coming Sunday April 23rd from 1-4pm in practice and support at It’s All Yoga Studio located at 2405 21st street in Sacramento.

These 3-hour classes for yoga practitioners with scoliosis are designed to support those who want to deepen their awareness and understanding of their bodies and refine the practice to meet their specific and unique needs.

We’ll explore a variety of yoga postures and breath awareness that will support greater alignment and more physical ease in the body with scoliosis. Practitioners will also learn modifications to commonly practiced yoga poses that can limit rather than intensify the conditions of scoliosis.

The theme of this months practice is ease in Spring. We’ll look at our experience of this season through the lens of nature and explore creating a sense of presence, inner spaciousness, and ease through breath awareness, release work, standing poses, backbends, and restoratives.

Sign up for the practice at kcwagaman@gmail.com or call 916-534-2721.

Drop in’s are also welcome.

Some previous yoga experience requested.

Cost $25 per class. Sundays from 1-4pm.

The Peace of Wild Things

heron_in_the_mist

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

~ Wendell Berry

wilderness

“I stood willingly and gladly in the characters of everything – other people, trees, clouds. And this is what I learned, that the world’s otherness is antidote to confusion – that standing within this otherness – the beauty and the mystery of the world, out in the fields or deep inside books – can re-dignify the worst-stung heart.”

The Egret

egret

The Egret by Mary Oliver
Every time
but one
the little fish
and the green
and spotted frogs
know
the egret’s bamboo legs
from the thin
and polished reeds
at the edge
of the silky world
of water.
Then,
in their last inch of time,
they see,
for an instant,
the white froth
of her shoulders,
and the white scrolls
of her belly,
and the white flame
of her head.
What more can you say
about such wild swimmers?
They were here,
they were silent,
they are gone, having tasted
sheer terror.
Therefore I have invented words
with which to stand back
on the weedy shore—
with which to say:
Look! Look!
What is this dark death
that opens
like a white door?
