April 2015

Small fruit appearing on the apricot and plum trees! It is truly profound to contemplate and observe flowers moving into formation of fruit. ...and a new apricot tree sprouting from a seed last year.  And, some branches are dead, as the deer were hungry this winter and spring.

All signs seem to point to deep resonance with the cycles of life, and attuning.  Each day drawing breath is a gift, an experience.  The more we slow it down and savor the prana in each breath, the more we open and belong to the Wholeness and somehow it is digestible.

Blessings everyone. 
Find Beauty, Cultivate Beauty
 We hope that Studio de La Luz is a supportive space  for your  unfolding through all aspects of the cycle of life.

MARCH 2015

Greetings Everyone,


Studio de La Luz altar celebrates many shining souls, reflects our light and respects the many traditions and paths of faith, where love is at the center. It changes and grows and holds our prayers for peace. 

The practices of yoga, dance, breath, song, toning, drumming and hands-on -healing all involve connecting to  vitality and light beyond words and human "interpretation". These traditional healing arts are liberating and support our well being both individually and collectively.  
The studio is a space where you can personally and with others, increase the  joy, understanding and generosity we are capable of!

In the cusp of winter & spring..... blessings for good health and peace.



Please note that Jardin del Alma is beginning to have a new season of organic produce and will distribute at the studio some Friday afternoons :) 4-4:30.

FEBRUARY 2015

Greetings Friends,



This is one of the most beautiful pictures I've seen in a long time. It reveals so much about our human bodies and innate connectedness. This father and son, shaping themselves so naturally, demonstrates the ease that is possible, when we are safe, and well supported. May we all be that support and find that support, in our relationships, through our words and actions and simply by being there for ourselves and others.   We hope Studio de La Luz, offers just the support and opportunities you need to grow into what you naturally are!  Through touch, movement, sound and exploration your natural vitality can emerge, and your courage and heart be felt and shared.
Happy Valentine's Day Everyday

JANUARY 2015 WISHING ALL PEACE

JANUARY 2015

Welcome everyone, to the Studio de La Luz blog site. 
Wherever you are, we wish you good health!

The studio is a place of exploration of inner capacity for healing and feeling well and a place to share discoveries. In our 11th year, it has evolved into a place of community gathering to share in this journey of wellness.  Currently classes and workshops focus on; yoga, ecstatic dance, whole toning, traditional belly dance, bodywork, massage and vitality practices such as Body-Mind Centering (R), qigong and chi nei tsang,  Sufi Zikr and drumming. 
We are interfaith and multi-cultural recognizing and celebrating the heart in many paths.

This radiant Buddha image was chosen for its light and balance, and the beauty of heart which is the foundation. Our community recently said goodbye to a dear soul Dr. Eve Elting, a wonderful physician, a dancer, a yogini, and true humanitarian - well loved around the world. May we strive to be like her in generosity, good cheer, intelligence and fun-loving spirit! You will be missed so very much. You will  always be in our hearts.                                       Blessed Be dear friend, fly free.

NOVEMBER 2014

Announcement
No Whole Toning Class Friday Nov . 14th
 Maryse is away recording her CD!!!   YEAH!

ENERGY CHANGES DIRECTION


Our body rhythms are governed by light, and darkness. 
 HA-THA  translates -  sun-moon  
YOGA supports and  strengthens us, largely because it aligns our inherent rhythmic intelligence and  quite profoundly it affirms your true identity, and much stress is resolved when we are less confused by outer "messages" of who we should be and what we should look like, be doing, etc.  We get to "come home".
Yoga is a  challenge of full engagement, 
 in action and in rest. 

Stay kind, absolutely non -violent as you practice, listen and feel
and the rhythms will guide, teach and mend. But practice is the way, every day- get on your mat or rug....begin. BREATHE
Slowly, deeply, you are so perfect as you are ! 


o
Our rhythms are more easily felt at change of season, now-  as it gets darker &cooler....what is your inclination? ATTUNE.
 Stop a few moments, and breath- and register the changes. 
It just might help your immune system- and guide choices of diet, rest, and adjustments to your routine, authentically. 
 And you might notice what has had life, has lived and  now "dies" as leaves simply fall off, an easy falling, downward.........towards our roots. They are not afraid, or separate from the trunk or limbs, on or off the tree. It really is ONE WHOLE CIRCLE OF LIFE. How liberating this awareness!

BE NOURISHED & Enjoy this Autumn Season!
