Yoga isn’t about executing the poses perfectly,
or having the best balance.
Yoga is connecting with yourself.
Yoga is like learning to breathe again.
Or that moment when you jump out of bed in the morning,
rush outside to do the sun salution
and you’re blinded by how utterly brilliant the world can be.
Yoga is taking a moment from your stressful,
up-beat life and remembering you have a soul that needs tending to.
Yoga can teach you
how to give yourself
more kindness and compassion.
Yoga is all about recognizing the energy that is
already moving inside of you.
“Fear is that sensation that makes you grab tightly onto your seat. It’s the feeling that makes your stomach turn and your hands shake and your heart race. It’s the feeling of having no idea what’s next. It is also an attachment to the material world, to your physical being, to a reality that is illusory and temporary. This is because nothing in the material world, not even our bodies, is around forever. It is our spirits that ensure us our immortality. If you believe in energy, then you will understand why our spirits never die. And that’s where we need to place our faith: in the eternal, unchanging aspects of life, in our spirits. You have faith beyond that superficial stuff; you know that you are still the same beautiful person on the inside, and it is certainly not the end of the world. Once you choose to place your energy in your faith and not in your fear, something magical happens: the fear goes away.
Yoga helps us do this.”
