Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is what you learn on the way down.
Yoga is like life - it's a balance of holding on and letting go. Yoga does not change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.
Yoga is not for the flexible, it's for the willing.
Yoga takes you into the precise moment, the only place where life exists.
It's not your history, but your presence on the mat that matters.
Yoga is not about self-improvement, it's about self-acceptance.
Warning: yoga has been known to cause health and happiness.
The most important pieces of equipment you need for doing yoga are your body and your mind.
Yoga teaches you how to listen to your body.
Bend, so that you don't break.
Calming the mind is yoga, not just standing on the head.
In yoga, obstacles do not block the path, they are the path.
Don't practice yoga to get better at yoga; practice yoga to get better at life; life is all about balance.
I love this saying. I borrowed it from my Yogi friend Jamie L.
What is in the word for you?
Read it again and replace the word yoga for: exercise, laughter, good health, positive attitude, honesty, love. Think of a couple more words that work for you.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the rest of your life.
