Aqua Yoga on ABC-7 WWSB My Suncoast with Donny B. Fit

Original article: Donny B. Fit – Aqua Yoga

ABC7 WWSB My Suncoast
Posted on Feb 24, 2016
by Don Brennan

SARASOTA, Fla. — Yes, when getting up and down is difficult or painful, just “get in.”
The pool, that is. People are finding that the water is a lot more forgiving after years of wear and tear, injuries, and surgeries.

Jack Schlegel, a devotee of Aqua Yoga says, “It takes all issue of the floor out of it. I’ve tried yoga, but being on the floor is tough, and if it hurts, than its not good for you.”  Yoga was not on the radar for men of a certain age, but like Jack, they may be coming around.

“Men don’t do yoga”, Jack adds. “We know we should. I am the only guy in the class, and that’s kind of cool when its all women”, laughs Schlegel.

Tamara Page, the founder of Aqua Yoga, and an instructor at The Resort at Long Boat Key Club adds, “Men are showing up in droves now. They are finding that it is complimentary of their other sporting activities.”

Conventional yoga never appealed to Patsy Chotin , but the draw of the water has had a profound effect on her affinity for the fitness discipline.

“I never liked yoga, but getting in the water has changed all that. My health issues all go away”, explains Patsy Chotin, also a devout participant in Aqua Yoga.

Like so many things in life, this Aqua Yoga came about by chance.

“I was swimming with my niece and we decided to do some yoga moves in the water. I felt so good the next day that I started to make it a part of my routine”, says Page, who also teaches at Sarabande condominium in downtown Sarasota.

The water helps with the impact, but it is not as easy as people would think. “Balance on the water is different than on land. It can be trickier, so it helps with balance”, adds Page.

Chotin opines, “Aqua yoga works things that weights don’t. It has really helped with my balance, and I love being in the water.”

That seems to be the general consensus. Good exercise, a nice group of people in a setting that couldn’t be better, and all the while it is a way to a healthier, less painful, and more mobile life.

“I love it! It makes a big difference, at least according to my physical therapist”, Schlegel exclaims.

My New Year reminder this year is to reflect on the radical and grandiose rigid resolutions in past years that never really worked! I invite you to consider the yogic approach to create and manifest the life you truly want to live.

How about trying something NEW this year? Why not plant seeds of intention to slowly move in the direction of the new path you would like to explore.

Consider the practice of yoga as a similar analogy to planting seeds of a beautiful rose bush. The process requires time to nurture and carefully cultivate before the first bud presents. Eventually in its own time the bud will blossom!

This year, take your yoga off the mat and into your life practicing the techniques to living mindfully, skillfully, and simply – allowing the beauty of life to unfold moment by moment, breath by breath, day by day.

Step 1)  Visualize the new intentions you would care to create.

Step 2)  Practice gently with self care and allow the process to begin.

Step 3)  Offer your best each and every day, then make a conscious choice to surrender the result or outcome.

Step 4)  Begin to accept (rather than resist ) whatever arises as we meet and greet ourselves and others each and every day.

Step 5)  Embrace discomfort and vulnerability when things are not going the way we would like. Knowing this too shall pass, it always does.

Step 6)  Keep your focus on the larger meaning of life, allowing everything to settle over time, be a witness to the drama rather than a participant. Eventually it all falls away.

Step 7)  Settle into the place of peace even when things do not happen the way you think you would like or expect. Be open to the surprises that might far exceed your original intention.

Step 8)  Choose consciously to discover your most joyful self, access hidden wells of energy, enhance creativity, love yourself and others unconditionally, embrace your truth, and live authentically!

Sarasota Summer Yoga Gong Meditation - May 23 2015

Summer Salute to Seniors

As summer subsides on September 21, it is with great honor we acknowledge the spectacular moments enjoyed with many seniors who share the same pinnacle of life that summer represents.

Thank you for offering yourselves wholeheartedly
; opening your minds, hearts and souls to explore the practices of yoga and meditation together (especially those of you in your 80’s and 90’s).  We are reminded of the very strong life force within each of us who dedicate our life, health and wellness as a beautiful gift to one’s self.   I am continually inspired by you….

As we wind down our summer days on the beaches of the beautiful Long Boat Key Club, a special thank you goes out to all those who stopped by from out of town and to the regulars who participated in the playfulness within yoga, while witnessing porpoises, seabirds, manta rays, spectacular skies, crystal clear waters, and practicing in sugar sand.

Stay posted for details on participating in the Long Boat Key Club Destination Vacation Winter 2014.

“And as the season transitions from summer’s last heat to autumn’s first signs, may we find the balance of the “equal night” within that which represents the autumnal equinox.

The autumn equinox is a mysterious time, marking an essential passage in the process of enlightenment that is often overlooked, misunderstood, and mistaken as dark and heretical. 

Sarasota sunset

It is the time of balance between day and night, before night takes over and brings 

the coming winter, a time of darkness and death. This duality between light and dark exists within humanity, and in the work of spiritual transformation. All things must die before they can be born, all spiritual ascent requires descent first, and all those who long for light must first face their own inner darkness and overcome it. The autumn equinox symbolizes a stage of inner preparation in the process of enlightenment—to make way for the Son to be born within at the winter solstice.” *

Save Our Seabirds Yoga in the Bird Garden – Oct 26 thru Apr 26

Many thanks to all the participating yoga studios and teachers working together as a community with SOS to create awareness of the need to support the sanctuary that very graciously mends and repairs Sarasota’s seabirds. It is unfortunate that our native birds are subject to and often the recipient of injury caused by golf balls, fishing hooks, autos, etc. I look forward to you, your family and friends joining us this season to have fun together while supporting this great cause.

Namaste, Tamara
