Hawk

 

This morning the hawk

rose up out of the meadow’s browse

and swung over the lake-

it settled on the small black dome

of a dead pine,

alert as an admiral,

it’s profile

distinguished with sideburns

the color of smoke

and I said: remember

this is not something

of the red fire,

this is nature’s fistful

of light and creation,

and the hawk hooked

one exquisite foot

onto a last twig

to look deeper

into the yellow reeds

along the edges of the water

and I said: remember

the tree, the cave

the white lily of resurrection,

and that’s when it simply lifted

its golden feet and floated

into the wind, belly-first,

and then it cruised along the lake-

all the time its eyes fastened

harder than love on some

unimportant rustling in the

yellow reeds-and then it

seemed to crouch high in the air, and then it

turned into a white blade, which fell.

Class Descriptions:

 

 

Slow Flow & Yin

Perfect for beginners or those seeking a restful and healing practice. The first half of this class is designed to gently warm the body with a slow, mindful vinyasa flow. The second half will focus on simple poses that you hold for longer periods of time to lengthen the deeper connective tissues in your spine, hips and other joints.

 

Ashtanga Vinyasa Short Form

A system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). Involving synchronizing breath with a progressive series of postures – a process producing  internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a strong body and a calm mind.

 

Vinyasa

Blend of Pranayama (breath) and Asana(poses), with emphasis on flow, movement, balance and intention. Build your serenity, flexibility & stamina.

 

Yin Yoga

Relax in simple poses that you hold for longer periods of time, typically 5-7 minutes in supported postures, creating an opportunity to lengthen the deeper connective tissues in your spine, hips and other joints for improved mobility and to move into a mindfully aware and meditative state.
