Thank you so much.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

I forgot there was a section for specific pose/practice ideas - I thought I'd re-post this here....

Hi everyone! I was on a retreat with my sister's church this weekend and taught two Holy Yoga classes. It was such a blessing to me to practice with these women. Many were new to yoga and were very excited about the practice. During relaxation I read a portion of a quote from the Thomas Ryan book, Prayer of Heart and Body (he is quoting Carolyn Cronk) that I thought I'd also share with you. Think about this the next time you are in savasana:

"The letting go in relaxation is in and of itself significant; the entire front of my body being open and vulnerable is a position of great trust, calling to mind the trust in God that is the ground of my faith. Conscious awareness of how I am supported by the earth beneath my back recalls both my connectedness with all of creation and the unfailing support of God's love. Focusing on nothing but my breath entering my body reminds me of how there is nothing essential to life that is not provided through God's love for me. Finally, my open and upward-facing palms are a gesture of gratitude and of readiness to receive the gifts of love and grace."

"So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away, see, everything has become new!"

2 Corinthians 5:17 (NRSV)
