July Focus of the Month — Community (Satsang)

Community of Yogis, Satsang

Focus of the Month: Community (Satsang)

The only thing better than seeking and finding one’s truth is seeking and finding one’s truth alongside others. Here at The Yoga House new friendships are forged and old friendships flourish every day. We have been witness to the buzz and bliss of freshly formed romantic relationships, to the mutual encouragement of longtime pals nudging each other toward health, and to the steady commitment of household partners choosing to make yoga an integral part of their families’ lives.

Our yoga practice is enhanced when we build in the accountability and reciprocal inspiration that come from practicing together. Yoga is not just for me or you. It’s how we build peace. It’s how we knit together a harmonious community one individual at a time. This month, consider yourself part of a satsang, a group of practitioners moving, together, toward Truth. See you on the mat!

Life is filled with bright, shiny objects that distract us, knock us off track, and keep us from knowing our truest needs. They pull us away from our core values and innate wisdom.

How do we figure out what really works for us?

I believe that we all have the ability to find those answers, even if we can’t always access that wisdom or follow through on it. It has to do with slowing down and listening deeply, two things that are not given much respect in this world of information overload. High speed, next generation wireless networks keep us always plugged in out there but not in here where it helps the most.

The essence of what I teach and embody in my work comes from learning to listen deeply to myself. It’s about paying mindful attention to my body and soul to figure out what works for me. I’ve learned how to give myself what I need to truly flourish and feel strong and vibrant. I feel so grateful to be able to share this learning with you.

The class will be taught by Mel Toth who comes to us highly recommended and whose joyous energy and enthusiasm for all aspects of yoga is contagious.

Melanie Toth (Mel)

Mel’s yoga journey began in her living room over 13 years ago. An educator since 1998, Mel has taught 4th grade, co-authored a strategy book for teachers and served as a tutor and Director of Education for several NY learning centers. From her extensive background in education, Mel brings a solid understanding of how each student interprets information differently and may apply those misinterpretations to his or her body. As such, she strives to make her instruction clear and accessible for students of all levels of experience. Mel’s classes focus on the development of a solid foundation through the use of props, demonstration, description, and encouragement, while exploring basic principles of alignment, balance and relaxation. By encouraging her students to respect their physical limitations while exploring what is possible, Mel aims to help each individual learn how to serve the unique needs of their body. She is forever grateful to her first yoga teacher, Jill Gnassi, whose expert Iyengar instruction taught her how attending to small details could make a huge difference in her life, both on and off her mat.
