APRIL 2014 Blossoms into Leaves




All the same tree!     First "nothing" - bare branches, then a small speck of green emerges and it is full
tilt life force made visible from now till the leaves just coming on fall away and become earth and it is the quiet cycle above ground. Hope you have had time to smell a few beautiful blossoms- apple, apricot and plum and peach- YOU ARE THE SAME! May your garden grow well, your nurturing be received and your harvest plentiful.

As it warms up, there is so much movement- in the body the liver wakes up- interesting that the Healing Tao sound for waking up is Shhhhhh.   Move muscles and sinews and your blood, eat more greens and stretch!
And behold the wonders of life so evident, and so changing before our eyes. Know you are important in the whole and connected.

MARCH 2014 movement under our feet- awakening

Balance & Change   
 Celebrate breath, rhythms, flexibility and community through all the seasons.  
Spring is coming, emerging from winter- more palpable aliveness....... blossoms & "weeds",
the life force is obvious!
 

Blessed to spend a day at the Morikami Museum in Florida recently. A tribute to the Japanese culture that established an agricultural center in the 1920's-30's, the land was eventually donated and is now a site to visit and enjoy. A reminder of the subtle beauty that surrounds us, the power in stillness, and our capacity to honor this aspect of our environment and self. It does help us treat each other and our world better.



This month,welcome  "Spiritual Alchemy" a weekend workshop with Natalie Reid, and Kundalini Yoga for Women with Nancy Tafoya.
In addition to our ongoing classes of yoga, meditation in motion and community hands on wellness clinic.

2014 Greetings in a New Year may Peace Prevail!



Greetings everyone,
May this year bring all you need to make the choices that are best for health and wellbeing.
Mostly,  may you have love and support around you and the power to reach out as needed, and
gentleness with yourself and others. Of course, the breath is the best way to find this gentleness and
steadiness that lies under the roller coaster ride. Taking that PAUSE- in momentum, is a practice- and kind of like making your bed everyday, it needs to be tended daily- like calling a good friend.

May you all have this good friend to lean into. and may the discoveries along the way bring joy and wonder.

with Love,
wendy and all at Studio de la luz

December - edges



So much of yoga is about edges. Outside touching inside, breath meeting tissues and mind and feelings, our body meeting the ground and letting go of our habitual shaping, or assumed edges. Lets do it with extraordinary kindness and courage, one wave at a time!

blessings for a safe and connected holiday season

Attuning! November 2013



Studio de La Luz aims to support your health
 in practical and affordable ways

It is Affordable Care... in Action.   What you learn, is YOURS. When you learn skills
for balancing and supporting your amazing  physiology- the orchestra of systems and tissues, chemistry and mind -you are richer and empowered in your Health- and more skilled in healing when something goes off kilter in  your self and others and world.  You know how to rest, how to respond, and in fact- are less likely to "get sick" as your immune system and neurological communication system will be stronger. You will heal faster, and be more inclined to make choices about where you put your energy that are "in your health favor".

Come by, have an affordable bodywork session, and learn skills of movement, sound, and body-mind balancing that make life better. Strengthen your inherent skills of self healing and increase enjoyment of this precious life! 

Blessings!
