Yoga on the Beach: Los Cabos Vacation

Yoga on the Beach on our Recent Los Cabos Vacation

Wayne and I spent a busy week in Los Cabos recently, getting the condo ready for the rental season. It was a vacation from work at home but were we ever busy!

During the busyness of life yoga and coming back to my breath is my sanity.

I have been blessed with a friendship with Ivonne Lopez, who teaches the beach yoga classes at our Casa del Mar development.

Here is us with some honeymooners who attended class. It was a fabulous class!

Tapas or Self-Discipline

Tapas is the day to day choice to burn non-supportive habits of the body and mind, choosing to forsake momentary pleasures for future rewards.”

From: ‘The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice’

Topaz Lotus Inspired Eco Living: The Beauty of Meditation

The Beauty of Meditation

Meditation creates ‘pure space’ between thoughts and feelings.

It allows one to detach from strongly held beliefs that no longer serve.

Meditation is ‘spring cleaning’ for the mind.

Topaz Lotus Eco Living: 5 Steps of a Sacred Spiritual Practice

Practicing Yoga

 

Topaz Lotus Eco Living: Sacred Spiritual Practice

 

On the days (and I try for most mornings), that I complete my sacred spiritual practice, I find that the day unfolds more smoothly and mostly effortlessly.

Here is what I find fulfilling:

1. I start with a slow fluid sun salutation or some other gentle yoga postures.

2. Spiritual reading by authors such as Pema Chodron, Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Deborah Adele is next.

3.  I have created a scrap book of beautiful images of gardens and landscapes and I often look through this.

4,  The 13 Moon Natural Time Calendar is a way of viewing time that fits for me as a woman who has lived by natural cycles, and I generally check to date according to this Mayan type calendar.

5.  I finish with some meditation.  Some days it is a couple of minutes and more often it is 10 minutes or so.

This wonderful start to my day usually takes 15 – 20 minutes and I just feel so much more depth to living and heart centered when I start my day with this sacred spiritual practice.

Topaz Lotus Inspired Living: A Quote to Start Your Day

 

Topaz Lotus Inspired Living: A Quote to Start Your Day

 

By Jelaluddin Rumi (13th century mystic poet)

 

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.

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

in mindfulness,

Topaz Lotus Inspired Living: A Great Quote of the Day

 

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”

Santosha: Contentment

from ‘The Yamas & Niyamas: Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice’ by Deborah Adele

‘Santosha invites us into contentment by taking refuge in a calm center, opening our hearts in gratitude for what we do have, and practicing the paradox of  “not seeking”.

 

Life Tip:

Start each day by being and feeling grateful for one thing in your life!
