Simple Pleasures

Some of the simplest things bring about the most pleasure! Here I thought I was the only one enjoying the weekly Yoga (summer) sessions under the open sky in the Park, but I was proven wrong. My announcing the continuation of the weekly Yoga in the Park sessions through September was received with cheers, joy, and enthusiasm – simple pleasures!

Could this pleasure of this Yoga practice amongst nature arouse awareness that the same “thing” which created trees, water, birds, grass, (yes, and sometimes bugs!), etc., is what created us! We didn’t create nature and no matter how callous one becomes in this life, when you see a beautiful sunset or notice a pretty flower, you are immediately present…in the NOW. The yoga practice is geared to take and keep us in the present moment, in the NOW. Think about the times you noticed something beautiful in nature….you feel an immediate stillness and presence. Your mind has to be still to notice beauty…if it is in the past or the future, you either have or are going to miss it!

Hope you decide not to miss another opportunity to join us at the (Ft Washington) Park. Enjoy these pictures of our most recent outing…
