Namaste Dear Community

fullsizerender-4Sonic is moving!!! Same sacred community. Brand new sacred space! Lease signed, keys in hand. Classes begin on Oct. 15th at our new home 944 8th Ave. between 55 & 56th. It’s so bittersweet. After 16 years at 754 Ninth Ave., the landlord priced us out of our space. It was truly divine intervention that brought us our new home at the very last minute. I’m so thrilled & excited yet feeling sad & reflective. Change is never asy. We had an amazing 16 years at our current space at 754 Ninth. So many beautiful souls walked through our doors & practiced together here. From Sept. 10, 2001 when Jonathan Fields signed the original lease, this old drafty, clanking building has housed our sacred Yoga community. It’s quite auspicious that on the night Continue reading

October Pose of the Month: Keith Partington chooses ANJANEYASANA

potm_keith-fullresANJANEYASANA Crescent Pose

Few postures in yoga ar more dynamic than Anjaneyasana. Named after Anjana, Mother of Hanuman, this seat is a foundational pillar of the practice, expanding the front of the body, stretching the hips, strengthening the legs and improving balance while awakening tremendous energy in the pelvic region. Our fight or flight response is seated deep in a core muscle known as the psoas, running from the spine, around the upper leg to the inner thigh. Opening this area releases fears buried deep within, revitalizing and emboldening the Spirit.

Teacher Spotlight – Jeffrey Scott Duval

About Jeffrey:
I was introduced to my first formal yoga class while earning my BFA in Dance at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis in the early 1990’s. In that first Shavasana, I had a mystical experience that I have shared with many of you in the teacher trainings. I had a distinctive sensation, that I was unwinding, not even a sensation, but a visceral “multi-dimension-sensation” that my body was actually spinning like a wheel, resetting it self, and felt a profound feeling of rest and relaxation. I had so much unconscious tension that I was not even aware of. I could finally feel what I think is the “Bhavana” or Mood of being at one, “atonement” or being at peace with oneSelf.

La Dolce Vita

FullSizeRender-3Namaste Everyone

I’m sending you blessings from Italia, my homeland and the place of La Dolce Vita “The Sweet Life”. I rent my house in Montauk every year and come here to the home of my ancestors to reconnect to my roots and to experience a more stress free way of approaching life.

The Italians are natural Yogi’s. The life they lead here is like a practice in itself. Always inspired by my experience here, I wanted to share with you some of the very simple lifestyle choices that will open you to a more grounded, balanced & connected way of life.

Pose of the Month: Ganda Bherundasana

POTM_Sept-2I love the way this pose opens up your throat chakra, cultivating self expression and communication.  Both are important for creating and sustaining relation ships and speaking your truth.  It’s all about the elbows! Wide elbows cause the ribs to splay and the whole pose to collapse. Squeeze those babies in! Squeezing the elbows together will elevate the torso so that your shoulder blades have enough room to effectively move together and push the ribcage forward creating an upper backbend that will keep the hips forward over the shoulders. Thus, creating balance!
