If you've ever wanted to try Ashtanga yoga, but didn't feel ready to jump into the Primary Series at 10:30...we now have the class for you.  On Wednesday morning from 9:15-10:15, Gwen Hull will be teaching Intro to Ashtanga. This class is appropriate for anyone.  The tighter you are the more this class will help.  The class will begin with breathing and body awareness in postures to prepare you to open, and then the Sun Salutations will be taught with many modifications and options for all body types, injuries, age, and lack of experience. Next, the standing postures will increase strength and confidence to help you move into seated postures.  Finally, the Closing sequence will be modified for each person so that you leave each day feeling challenged, relaxed, rejuvenated, and peaceful.

 

She would love for any new people to Ashtanga to try this class first, and then progress to the full primary series when they are ready.  More experience students are always welcome to attend if the time is better, but this class will focus on instruction.

"Sarah is a southern transplant here in the Midwest. Originally from Alabama (Roll Tide, y’all), she completed her Master’s degree in Horticulture at KSU and currently works as a Horticulturist at the amazing Powell Gardens!

Sarah’s yoga journey began eight years ago, and it intensified with her discovery of Vinyasa Flow yoga three years ago.  Vinyasa yoga links movement and breath while blending continuous flowing transitions with specific alignment.  Sarah is certified with a 200-hour Yoga Works training and is thrilled to share her zeal for teaching at the Zen Zone!

If you attend one of Sarah’s classes, expect vigorous, athletic, and mindful movement centered around a personal intention – all  underscored by a funky soundtrack!  Namaste."

At our Annual Board Meeting last weekend, one of my dear friends quoted a line from a book that we had been passing around, “Comparison is the Thief of Joy”.   I’m sorry I cannot tell you what book it came from because we usually have several good books and magazines laying around to enjoy during the weekend.

I can’t tell you how many times in the last few days I have recalled that phrase.

It really is true.  I see my child’s joyful smile when I give him a piece of candy, but can watch that joy die (or get stolen) if he sees me give two pieces to his sibling.  The comparison steals the joy.    There are lots of ways we let the THIEF steal the joy in our daily lives, but now that the perp is identified, I am not going to be so vulnerable anymore.

Experience the Joy without comparing, and live with joy beyond comparison!
