Solstice and so many other reasons

Yesterday we gathered for a solstice yoga practice -repeating poses 9 times or 9 poses in a sequence.

The mala practice to repeat- we talked about John Lennon’s fascination with the number 9- a little bit about numerology.

We closed our practice in kindness for ourselves and others, casting light into darkness and on this Thursday, 6/21/2018 on the south shore of Hood Canal at Twanoh Falls Beach Club it was overcast.  We did not see the light of the sun the entire day (it is good to have the light within).

After practice, we enjoyed a time of fellowship (that’s the idea, Yoga and Wine) good friends, good times.

State of Zen

Having just completed a week long yoga and wine retreat at Zen Villa in Halewia, HI on the North Shore of Oahu-we are in a state of Zen.

Yesterday’s meditation provided affirmations of acceptance, tolerance and tools for maintaining our state of zen as we return to our regular daily lives and routine.

Travel typically causes stress and some anxiety we tapped into our state of zen, into our breath and even into that internal sound quality that becomes silence.  We talked about returning to ‘da island- enjoying more conversations, more yoga practices, more or less wine as we finished the wine retreat with Bubbly some may have over indulged in the celebration having to find their way through the wine fog of that experience.

Yoga and Wine often gets a lot of stares, a lot of confusion–this retreat simply allowed for yoga practice in the morning and lovely wine tastings and education in the evenings.  We sipped and learned together, finding wines we liked, wines we would not choose to buy and wines we want to learn more about and keep sipping.

Anytime you want more information about yoga and wine please reach out to us.  We would love to hear from you, help to plan your retreat, and travel with you to your chosen destination.

Cheers, Aloha
