February 2018 * Month of Love
Mary Yoga Monthly ENews * Issue #146 
Love Gifts
Yes, Valentine's is come & gone, but like all rituals and celebrations they remind us of values we cherish everyday. The joy of gifting and receiving gifts of love and "charity" and kindness keeps giving all year. 
For encouraging early spring, this love month I renew my tradition of donating 10" of hair every two years to an organization that gifts wigs to children with medically caused baldness. Truly, the giver receives twice as much pleasure as the recipient, in my case! 
Valentine yourself, my dears ~ with what do you gift yourself, this week, this month, this year, this life? For me, this includes the pleasure of work that is giving and receiving; it includes the gift of learning and hobbies, for which I am passionate; it includes the gift of experiencing the planet & its people. So April has Jamaica, then Philadelphia, May is the Catskills, July is Atlantic City and then Tahoe, October is Portland OR, November is China ~ that's for starters!
China is a bit of a Roots journey for me. It's my parents' and ancestors' homeland, and my first visit ever; tho' hopefully not my last.
I am super excited.
My brother in Australia sent an aerial video of south China filmed via drone; it is spectacular to view, and it whets my travel appetite. Enjoy the aerial drone China video! 
And... make yourselves some delicious 2018 giftings, my Valentine beloveds!

Mother Mary Teacher Trainings
Whether you are a Yoga Teacher looking for Advanced TT credits, a fascinated student/practitioner, or a trainer or educator or healer, my Mother Mary TTs are the best way to immerse yourself with my variegated and marvelous lineage of Teachers I've inherited through my journeying in the lands of Yoga, healing, learning, and growth.
That's really the best way I can put it. A Teacher is always transmitting what s/he knows best, loves best, passions best about. The subject is merely the focus that we've agreed to choose to share deeply.
And the two current focuses that I've fashioned TT times for, are Restorative Trance Meditation Yoga (100 Hours), and Yoga Nidra (25 Hours). Come and share my time, and my teaching lineage, and honored teacher trainees. You'll be joining a long line of very good company.

Making Life Simple
Simplicity practice: the shorter hair supports this. Less time for hair care! The "sans makeup" practice I've adopted the past year supports it. Giving away and reselling stuff supports it.
Going "in" each morning before going "out" ~ be it 5 minutes or 20 minutes ~ supports it. Use whatever meditation forms work best for you. 
All things feel lighter and easier, with a centering practice. Vata-Pitta Virgo-Librans like me especially need the centering and grounding. A few fave resources are linked below.
Mom's Day Restore
Need some mothering with no family drama attached? We all do; I do too! Tho' my mom's gone she is with me in many wonderful ways. Teaching is one shared passion we have.
Restorative Yoga takes you inside, to your nourishing center, using yoga poses supported on bolsters, blankets and blocks.
Let me and my sweet team restore you. Bring a friend or family member and give everyone more ease. Music, aromatherapy, melting postures, & love. Pre-register here to ensure a spot. Two together are even better.
Saturday, May 12th, 3-5PM, at Pure Yoga East.
