Danielle Abisaab  Founder and Designer of Union Square Yoga. Schizophrenically swinging between my love for teaching yoga and design. Madly in love with life

IT’S ALL HERE
.
This year, I decided to act as if anything I desire is already here, and everything I seek has already found me
.
Including the forearm stand you have been trying to get into, success and inner peace come hand in hand when we treat ourselves as if we already are what we would like to become
.
2019, I am starting to fall in love with you

FISH PAUSE
.
Busy-ness is only on the surface, just as on the surface of the ocean there are waves and storms, noise undulations...but if we dive deep under the surface of that same ocean, there is quietude and calm, sound cancellation
.
Life is more relaxed, more paused in deep waters, and so is life at the bottom of our being
.
Worth remembering that we were all once ocean creatures

SUGGESTION
.
In my yoga practice, I try not to look for task completion, as I would much rather focus on inquiry
.
“What is the asana communicating that can make me evolve as a better human being?” Is the central question I suggest we ask while journeying on the mat, while diving deep within ourselves .

Come and explore some principles that will allow you to ride this time of the year with ease and peace. Two weeks prior to Christmas, right about the time the nightmare starts to reach its peak, I will be holding a CANDLE-LIT-SLOW-FLOW-RESTORATIVE-SPECIAL-YOGA-CLASS-WITH -TRIPPY-MUSIC- AND-POETRY-READING for all the frantic souls out there in need of a serious break away from the maddening crowds. Christmas carols overdose, shopping sprees and food comas don't have to be the underlying theme of your holiday season.
.
See you on the flip side of craze and daze.

WHAT IS YOGA?
.
Yoga is not about the pose, it’s not about the alignment of hips and knees and ankles, it’s not about the form and it’s not about performing, achieving, surpassing, competing or muscle toning
.
Yoga is an invitation to explore the language of the soul. It is the unison of intention, breath and movement guided from within
.
Yoga coaxes the body to receive its own truth so we can fully embody the pose while opening our hearts to what is real
.
The practice of Yoga suggests that we can use all of our experiences (solitary and relational, on and off the mat) as mirrors to unearth something important about ourselves and to use what we discover as valuable information in order to arrive at a deeper self understanding

DESCRIPTION
There are no separate pieces in this creation and not one of us exists outside the whole. Every sincere effort counts in making a change
.
If you read enough headlines about the current state of the environment, you are likely to get discouraged about the future of our planet, perhaps even feel helpless in the face of these real threats. The good news is we all have the potential to become agents of change through conscious awareness and small acts of kindness, as we rethink the way we live
.
The practice of yoga is about attuning to our inner environment and aligning with our external environment.
With Beirut City’s skyscape as a backdrop, come and explore these themes and more with Yoga Instructor Danielle Abisaab, as she guides you through a vigorous and detoxifying yoga practice designed to integrate the idea that there are no inconsequential actions, only consequential inactions.
.
Class will be acoompanied by a live DJ set with Jana Saleh, and followed with some leisure time to eat, drink, connect and giggle
.
PROGRAM
- Arrival no later than 9:45 am
- Yoga Class 10:00 am > 12:00 pm
- Food and Drinks 12:00 pm > 1:00 pm

SPIRIT OF THE JUNGLE
.
I tasted the flavor of contentment and smelled the perfume of oneness, I touched on the power of human kinship in glorious and copious ways.
The jungle is where I heard every single musical sound with all my ears...and with my three eyes, I witnessed the perfection of creation in all its intelligent forms. The jungle is where I shed tears of gratitude for a life lived with beautiful and flawless imperfections, where I embraced my own death before falling in the womb of the earth to witness my resurrection.
The jungle is where I learned that “needing” is what hinders our ability to experience fullness.
In the jungle we don’t crave much of anything... all we need to see begins when we close our eyes and all we need to do is turn up the listening
.
May we always and forever honor the dance of water and fire our grandfathers kept, the melody of wisdom our grandmothers sang. May we forever remember to tread our dreams with the same grace as the streams. May we never allow the mystery of the earth to elude us. May we all heal and prosper
.
You brought all this forth and more. Peru, you are spectacular...as spectacular as it feels to be a new me. .
