True yoga isn't just a workout. It is an ancient Indian philosophy espousing an eight-limbed approach to conscious living:

First Limb: Yama refers to ethical standards.

Second Limb: Niyama refers to self discipline and spiritual observances.

Third Limb: Asana is the postures we practice.   

Fourth Limb: Pranayama is Breath Control: conscious awareness of breath; the life force that both energizes and relaxes the body. The term is derived from the Sanskrit, prana, meaning "life force," and ayama, meaning "extension."  As we breathe with awareness, we find a rhythm practicing the poses which leads to relaxing the mind for meditation.

Next week, I will have a short explanation of the fifth of the eight limbs.

Lunch Club Date

Thursday, Sept. 20 at Shorty's on Lawrenceville Hwy.

Reminders and notes

Art Show; I need to change the date since I don't have many artists available on Oct. 27. Will keep you posted.

Couple's Thai Massage; Friday, Feb.8; 7 to 9 PM.  Please let me know if you would attend and please invite your family and friends to join us.  It is a great gift to give to couples you know.

I have received a request to start offering meditation on Tuesdays immediately after yoga.  Please let me know if you would participate. I will have a basket for donations to Our House in lieu of a fee.

I have attached  August and September's  calendars for your reference and review.  

Please label any item you leave in the yoga room with your name to avoid any confusion.
