Community, Discipline, Trust, Light

Spring

Mantra: Community
Celebration of Inner Revolutions 4th birthday filled us with joy and support of our community. We began to see more and more members showing up on their mats with dedication to their practice and commitment to yoga. With a rebirth and a rebrand of systems our focus was on building a strong yoga community in Kanata North. Our focus on a dedicated practice on and off mat. The yoga journey becomes more personalized as each new yogi finds a foundation to their practice. Yoga becomes more then just a posture.

Summer

Mantra: Discipline
The summer offered a view of discipline and focus as the weather and sun brought warmth and lots of light we looked at ways to encourage joyful discipline on and off mat. Retreats were being born. We launched and SOLD out our first 7 day retreat! We ran our second annual Nova Scotia Retreat to nature which SOLD OUT! Our yoga teacher training for teachers helped school teachers find ways to include the path of yoga in their classrooms. Joyful discipline all around!

Fall

Mantra: Trust
Fall we launched our new sustainable memberships. Our focus to build a dedicated practice of yoga on and off mat which reflects in our studio. Our studio became more tailored to our memberships and support and disciples to the path of yoga. The journey’s our guides and healing circles offer our community find a deeper meaning through all cells of life. We trust the path.

Winter

Mantra: Light
The winter season became a season of understanding what and where Inner Revolution Yoga Studio is positioned. As the studio was up for sale last winter the numbers and finical literacy became the priority. The light of growth and abundance was seen and the path forward was fully understood.

Moon in Libra for December 21 Soundbath
Moon Phase Waning Crescent

Moon in libra calls for balancing all aspects of ourself to bring together body, mind and soul. This sound vibration Rebecca Whiteraven will create with crystal bowls and our intention to balance will be a powerful source for inner and outer healing.

We are super excited to have our last sound healing on the December 21 the Winter Solstice. This passive healing circle will carry lots of energy from both the solstice. This will be a very special healing circle.

The winter solstice celebrates the longest hours of darkness or the rebirth of the sun and is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration, renewal and self-reflection.

 Using the sound of the crystal bowls we can double up on our cellular regeneration. Deep healing and opening space in our body for more light.

Healing is a process of bringing our body, mind and soul back in balance. When all systems are running optimally we are well. When one of our systems is out of balance for a long period of time we become ill. Yoga is a deeply healing practice. Yoga means to unite bring back and connect the body, mind and spirit. Yoga teaches us how to let go of tension and relax our system. Yoga uses postures, breath, meditation, mindfulness and other limbs to help balance and create wellness in our whole system. This balance enhances how our energy moves through our bodies and helps stimulate our own innate healing.

For many of us this season can be very tough. Some of us have lost loved ones, some of us get caught up in the rat race, some of us are sick and out of balance, some of us over spend. For me December was when I lost my mother. This month for me has been about taking care of myself so that I can be of service to others.

If this is a season of discontent for you here are some things that can help lift you up;

  1. Take time to do something you love everyday.
  2. Take a day off and rest. No running around, no social media. Sleep in and rest.
  3. Spend time with people you love. Connect with your social network in person. Go out to eat or go dancing.
  4. Take care of your body by moving and eating well. Limit your sugar & alcohol  intake.
  5. Practice gratitude daily.

Ascension is the process of spiritual awakening that moves you into a higher level of consciousness. When we ascend we move from the ego into the heart. Ascending our ego is the first level of ascension.

Divination is the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by the divine. Tuning into our energetic field we can begin to see, hear, feel the subtler realms around us. When we can tune in to this level we can begin to learn the knowledge of the future.

In the Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living, the Dalai Lama says that meditation is about seeing your “natural state of your consciousness”.

When asked about how long one should meditate his answer was “How busy are you? If you are not busy then there is no need to meditate for long periods. If you are busy then there is a need to meditate for long periods.

This is a very busy season. Take time to slow down and practice just slowing down. If you have a meditation practice, practice for longer periods and see what happens.

This month we take a deep dive into the topic of PEACE
What is Peace?

In Yoga Peace refers to a harmony and balance between mind, body and soul. Shanti means peace, calm, tranquility and bliss. Yoga and its limbs help us to find this blissful state within us. Using postures, breath, mediation, concentration, right actions, internal guidance to help us source this peaceful state of being.

Peace on your mind, Peace on your lips, Peace in your heart

Here are 3 ways you can find more PEACE in your yoga practice;
1) Start everyday practice gratitude
2) Focus on the parts of yourself that feel at peace in the poses
3) Include meditation into your practice
