Ashaya means “abode of the heart.” This yoga heals the body, mind and spirit and is rooted in Kashmir Shaiva Tantra. Everyone has unique and optimal position of alignment. Though there are many detailed alignment techniques, the balance of the contracting and expanding energies around a body part is most important. Injuries result or don’t heal when there is an imbalance of this energy (spanda). When there is an imbalance of spanda, muscles are too tight or too loose. This affects the joints that the muscles move and protect.

An integral part of Ashaya Yoga are the 4 essentials

  1. Open- to a bigger energy, set your foundation
  2. Engage -your muscles , draw energy to the spanda center
  3. Align - the body parts (which are more safe after the engagement)
  4. Expand- from the spanda (energy) of the particular pose. This is the stretch. Once you are open, engaged and aligned , you will safely stretch without injury. This will promote healing and ultimately more strength and flexibility.

Details Include:

  • Postural awareness working in groups
  • Instructions and practice of healing techniques and yoga postures to do at home
  • Instructions and practice of specific shoulder integration and head alignment and how to keep safe during a yoga class
  • Yogic breathing (pranayama) to relax tension in the shoulders and neck
  • Guided relaxation and meditation

chai photoJoin us in yoga remembering that the world is one family, as Swami Kripalu used to say.  Enjoy a class, delicious homemade chai and contribute generously.  Ella and Nadia will walk the Project Bread Walk on Sunday, May 5th and we need sponsors to meet our fundraising goals!

Project Bread is an organization that has always been close to my heart.  Why should anyone be hungry in the 21st century in Massachusetts?  This is what they do:

"You walked, ran, and volunteered. You donated and sponsored Massachusetts' largest day of community action against hunger. Through your support of Project Bread's 50th Walk for Hunger, in 2018 we invested $1 million in 315 community programs across 97 Massachusetts cities and towns.

You made all this possible:

    • 304,589 bags of groceries provided to families at local food pantries
    • 102,012 hot meals served at community meal programs
    • 231,400 pounds of locally-grown fresh produce provided to low-income residents through farm & garden initiatives
    • 3,025 emergency food vouchers provided to elders, homeless, and refugees
    • 171,655 pounds of food rescued and redistributed to people in need
You are funding research that will look closely at the causes of hunger in some of our state's highest-need communities. The insights gained through our research will inform and drive Project Bread's work and support a wide spectrum of anti-hunger organzations throughout Massachusetts. We look forward to sharing this with you when it is complete! 

You are supporting statewide solutions including expanding support to enroll food-insecure residents and families in federal nutrition programs, giving them stable access to nutritious food in their schools, supermarkets and communities."
