Soul & The Old Woman

soulful sufi
Soul And The Old Woman ~ Rumi

What is the soul? Consciousness. The more awareness, the 
deeper the soul, and when 

such essence overflows, you feel a sacredness around. It’s 
so simple to tell one who 

puts on a robe and pretends to be a dervish from the real 
thing. We know the taste 

of pure water. Words can sound like a poem but not have 
any juice, no flavor to 

relish. How long do you look at pictures on a bathhouse 
wall? Soul is what draws 

you away from those pictures to talk with the old woman 
who sits outside by the door 

in the sun. She’s half blind, but she has what soul loves 
to flow into. She’s kind; she weeps. 

She makes quick personal decisions, and laughs so easily.

YFS Support & Community Practice – SUNDAY OCT 29th 1-4pm at EPIC!

sideways over bolster kw

Inviting our yoga community with scoliosis to come together this coming Sunday October 29th from 1-4pm in practice and support at EPIC Revolution located at 650 Howe Ave. Building 500 Suite 530 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 yielding into Autumn. We’ll look at our experience of this season through the lens of nature.  Together we’ll explore creating a sense of presence, inner spaciousness, and ease through breath awareness, release work, standing poses, 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.

Yoga For Scoliosis, Asymmetries, & Imbalances – with Kim Wagaman & Bella Dreizler Sept. 30th

gravity-stone-balancing
We are like snowflakes—no two alike. Our unique alignment, created over time by heredity, injury and habit has us many of us experiencing imbalances in our bodies. These differences can create challenges in the ways we sit, stand, lay and participate in our lives. Join us for a day of explorative yoga practice. We’ll integrate breath awareness and deep release work using balls and rollers with yoga asana specific to your body patterns. Breathe, release and realign into a more spacious and balanced expression of your being.
Equanimity is possible when we connect with what is, and hold space for what’s new.

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
