Featuring Private Skype Classes from my home to yours

I am happy to announce that I now offer private Skype yoga classes. I know you’re probably thinking…weird, right?

Well I thought so as well until one of my retreat guests really wanted to continue lessons together so I suggested we give it a try. To top it off this client had not even used Skype before! Almost one year later and we will still have our weekly sessions together. She lives in Switzerland with her family and finds it ideal to just pop out of bed and onto her mat as I instruct her through a private session. As she said: ” It feels 85% as if we are in the class together” Thanking technology these days!

The Skype private costs 50 euros for 75 minutes of bliss.

Make a peace pact with your Body

The body is very wise. The mind is a very late arrival. The body has lived millions of years, it knows what is needed. It is the mind that interferes. Mind is very immature, body is very mature. Listen to the body. And when I say listen to the body, I don’t mean remain confined to the body. If you listen to the body, the body will not have anything to say to you — things will be settled. And when the body is at ease, relaxed, and there is no tension, and the body is not fighting for something, is not trying to attract your attention because you are not fulfilling a need, when the body is calm and quiet, you can float high, you can fly high, you can become a white cloud. But only when body needs are truly looked after. The body is not your enemy, it is your friend. The body is your earth, the body has all your roots. You have to find a bridge between you and your body. If you don’t find that bridge, you will be constantly in conflict with your body — and a person who is fighting with himself is always miserable. The first thing is to come to a peace-pact with your body and never break it. Once you have come to a peace-pact with your body, the body will become very, very friendly. You look after the body, the body will look after you — it becomes a vehicle of tremendous value, it becomes the very temple. One day your body itself is revealed to you as the very shrine of Divine. Osho

Charles Bukowski’s Words of Wisdomry

nobody can save you but
yourself.
you will be put again and again
into nearly impossible
situations.
they will attempt again and again
through subterfuge, guise and
force
to make you submit, quit and /or die quietly
inside.

nobody can save you but
yourself
and it will be easy enough to fail
so very easily
but don’t, don’t, don’t.
just watch them.
listen to them.
do you want to be like that?
a faceless, mindless, heartless
being?
do you want to experience
death before death?

nobody can save you but
yourself
and you’re worth saving.
it’s a war not easily won
but if anything is worth winning then
this is it.

think about it.
think about saving your self.
your spiritual self.
your gut self.
your singing magical self and
your beautiful self.
save it.
don’t join the dead-in-spirit.

maintain your self
with humor and grace
and finally
if necessary
wager your self as you struggle,
damn the odds, damn
the price.

only you can save your
self.

do it! do it!

then you’ll know exactly what
I am talking about. – Charles Bukowski
