This is a photo from Day 8 of the yoga training. > > >
(hello Jai Bodhi belly:)
...and DJ HyFi (Ian Hyman), brother from another mother, soul mister with a twisted sister, played a ridiculously deep set. The beats were an expansion of the vibration and the feeling was high.
Everyday of the training has been a gift. I'm humbled and it is with deep humility that I receive the gift of each and every students praise and love. Never did I think that, me, Melissa, would be the one to hold space for such a thing. But, when so many people kept asking me to do a training for Reno, I listened and really worked so hard to bring something special to my friends/family. We've grown so close to each other that the hardest part is thinking that soon, we'll be finished with our 200-hr immersion. I'm already planning the reunion!
We will have a talent show for our graduation celebration where each trainee has been invited to share something, whatever they can dream of. The response is overwhelmingly cool. Pradeep will be there. Ian will be there. Wish you all could come. Hey Radhe....
The things we take for grated... I remember the day this picture was snapped. I remember thinking that the photo would only be good enough if my arms would become a little straighter. WOW.
My stinkin' thinkin' has come a long way baby! And speaking of baby! I would die to do a nice delicious backbend right now. Feeling 27 weeks pregnant these days and asana has taken on a whole new meaning.
I am grateful, so grateful for my body. I couldn't care any less about the things my mind thought I didn't have. It seems like ages ago when I would grasp for a posture or grip at something. I once dreamt of a time when I would feel free. Free from this mind created fake suffering.
Yup, that helped me to see that I had nothing and that I am nothing but consciousness in the flowing river of life as an earthling.
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way...
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sun shiny day!
Can you see that you are that?
You are this and you are that. It's hard to comprehend by the mind.
How do we tap into that place of knowing?
Sitting and shutting up is this prized jewel of sacred knowledge that I literally stumbled upon through this community, this sangha that is Janet Stone Yoga.
AND THE POINT IS......... ?

I've attended the festival for the last 4 years and I've always enjoyed the sunshine yoga-vibe.
As a presenter this year, I will offer a workshop on Thursday, July 17th and a rocking bhakti-infused breath class on Friday, July 18th.
JOIN ME in celebrating life. JOIN ME in moving beyond the mind and body. JOIN ME in this spirit dance.
You may get to meet the little wiggler in my belly. If so, it will be his first public debut.
I'll see you there. I'll be the one with muscle atrophy, bags under my eyes, and a whole new appreciation for this body.
