Spring Giddiness
Every year, I marvel anew at Spring, at her showy blazing of floral colors even on the sidewalks, broad avenues, townhouse gardens of New York City. The birth and rebirth of life is so persistent and irrepressible. Each cycle of darkness into light, of winter into spring, kind of astonishes me and reassures me at the same time. The sheer abandonment to beauty of nature is delicious to get drunk on.
My favorite spring poem is from a Persian mystic poet from 800 years ago, that felt that spring intoxication too ~ 
Spring Giddiness - Rumi
Today, like every other day, we wake up empty
and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study
and begin reading. Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.
I would love to kiss you.
The price of kissing is your life.
Now my loving is running toward my life shouting,
What a bargain, let’s buy it.
Daylight, full of small dancing particles
and the one great turning, our souls
are dancing with you, without feet, they dance.
Can you see them when I whisper in your ear?

All day and night, music,
a quiet, bright
reedsong. If it
fades, we fade.
Rumi b. September 30, 1207

Restorative Acroyoga Immersion
The AcroYoga Lunar immersion is a deep dive into learning succulent Thai Massage techniques: Prone, Side-lying, Seated, and Supine, that flow one into another.
We then take the Thai massage up into the air with Restorative Flying, known also as Therapeutic AcroYoga, or Therapeutic Flight. Everything within the context of partner AcroYoga as a communicative, healing yogic art. This Immersion is progressive and open to all levels. No pre-requisites or partners are necessary.
Katie Capano is a midwife and nurse practitioner and a longtime certified AcroYoga Immersion senior teacher.
Mary Aranas is a full-time yoga, meditation, and restorative teacher and trainer, one of less than 200 certified AcroYoga Immersion teachers worldwide.
AcroYoga Immersions are 30-hour curriculums artfully developed and honed over many years for AcroYoga International. This is the only Lunar Immersion scheduled in the continental USA in 2019. Yoga Teachers are eligible for YACEP 30 CEU hours.

Cosmic Thai & Fly
This Spring is my launch of Cosmic Thai & Fly ~ restorative AcroYoga Fridays!
Friday evenings, 6pm-7:30, we ease the week's stress from tight muscles as we give and receive healing Thai bodywork techniques. 
The class includes a short Flying Thai segment where you have the option to give Thai massage in the air in simple restorative flying techniques, or on the ground, as you prefer.
Beginner friendly, and no partner needed! First class at Cosmic Fit Club is free! 
Yoga Nidra Weekend 
Yoga meets science, meets ancient tantric arts, in the delicious yet restful practice of Yoga Nidra meditation.
A gateway practice to seated meditation, as well as a deep rich world of its very own, Nidra can help us relax and rest better, clear our minds, reset behavioral or thought patterns, or access intuition and guidance, all as we may choose.
My weekend Yoga Nidra Teacher Training June 29-30, explains and demystifies Nidra, and equips you to lead yourself and others through Yoga Nidra meditation, varying lengths and themes as suit the individual situation.
