Grateful I am for good, kind and beautiful people
Who truly show and share themselves.
I am grateful for those who with sincerity, grace, compassion & kindness - believe, respond, reciprocate, create and love
- with towering degrees of consistent transparency, emotional intelligence and introspection - [without fear] deeply sharing
the beauty of this wonderful life - right alongside with me. :o) I Thank-you.
I am also Grateful for the others
For all revelations - of the stages along their own process of development.
For realizing that their choices - whether based on any pound of flesh or fear - that their action or inaction - Is entirely
reflective of their own internal challenges or effort - towards that addicting & deceptive tap dance for inner power & mastery.
Grateful I am to truly “see” and to have experienced them… I will always give thanks - for it is in recognizing them that
I learn even more of the stages & the layers along my own journey and more of the beauty of self.
For even in those moments which lack kindness - they have produced in me a special/unique and dynamic
[very well earned] dent, a dimple if you will .. this beautiful indentation - which continues to mold me into
the purposeful person that is intentionally beautiful and true. A likeness quite similar to pillars supporting structure…
oh vessel supporting substance. :o) I Thank-you.
It is through all experiences - the good and the bad - that we are beautifully molded.
And through both, I am always inspired to give my best me - to live my best and in each moment my best life, to share with self and with others my highest good. And just like water - unpretentious movement in, out and around each process and all circumstances - as I continue to flow.
Yes - Gratitude is a happiness state… uhm, so again today as in any day - I remember this!
Oh, ever grateful I am.
Come what may - In all that you think - in all that you do, I invite you (I challenge you, I dare you) I encourage you to keep the kind & the happy in every day. May you be safe, may you be loved, may you be well.
Happy Thanksgiving to you w/ my usual warmth - hugs + heart.
Out of the night that covers me,
What students are saying...
"I attended Life by Yoga's classes in a past Harlem location, while vacationing in NYC. From the time I entered the space I was impressed. I can still remember how it felt just walking in - it was great... calming, very thought through, warm & inviting. The props provided were in good condition too. Hey it was my first time practicing yoga and while exploring plenty of yoga spots in NYC - I was told about Life by Yoga's special difference by a friend. During the classes I was walked through each pose in a very patient & compassionate way. They were attentive to my needs, and as well as to the needs of the others in the class.
As a novice - so many of the yoga stretches were way beyond my capacity lol - but I was given modifications, specific to my body structure and at the end of classes left feeling challenged, refreshed, enlightened and spiritually activated.
So for my entire 6 week stay, I kept going back for more. You betcha'... every time I return to NYC, wherever they're located, I will absolutely be found attending Life by Yoga classes. Definitely one of New York City's best kept secrets" - Rodney V Payne.
