One of the best things about yoga (if not THE best), is that after each practice, you really do grow and you really do transcend into a higher self. You become enlightened by your own abilities and the miracles of your amazing body. You learn, you discover a lot about yourself, and you gain a great deal of humility. When all of this radiates from ourselves, we put peace into our lives and into the lives of those around us.
It is in our nature to love.
We are living life and practicing yoga not to achieve anything but as the movement of life that is already fully established in us—life happening with an unfathomable depth of feeling. It is our natural condition, to be with the breath, to be with that which is breathing us. To simply be with your experience, whatever it is, altogether without idealism, is to be in the natural state. You are life happening here, you are whatever it is altogether.
Found this on Facebook! I guess somebody loved my quote so much, that they took a picture of it :) I wrote this on our studio wall before the expansion.
Om hari om!
I am always home when I am on my mat.
