Fall in LOVE with your life

at LI Kula Yoga

Namaste' Kula,

As we enter the Fall season, let's reflect on the words of the great Hafiz (below).

Practice being the observer and watch the beauty of Grace unfold all around you. As the seasons change, notice the vibrant & magnificent hues, leaves gracefully surrendering to the earth & the air which offers us cooler air to breathe in to nourish our bodies. Observe how nature stays grounded despite the change. During this time may we trust in the rhythm of nature, may we ourselves be inspired to stay rooted & connected to our own essential nature. In our contemplations and observations, may we discover the true nature of our hearts.

Ahhh-Fall:-)

Please check out our Fall offerings & workshops which includes a Community Outdoor Event in September, our Fall 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in November AND our upcoming Puerto Rican Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat coming in March 2015! So many exciting programs coming your way. We look forward to seeing your faces...Happy Fall!


Om Shanti!!

Your Friends at LI Kula Yoga


Leave the familiar for a while
Let your senses stretch out
Like a welcome season
Onto meadows shores and hills
Change rooms in your mind for a day
All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside the equator of your heart
Greet Yourself
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide
And travel
Back home
Into the great circle of the heart.

~HAFIZ
