“And then we did our giving and taking, and our poses, regular as clockwork ... I had learned a long time before, that keeping them up every day was more important than the problems that would always arise and try to stop them.” ~ Friday, from the book "How Yoga Works"
“The study of asana is not about mastering posture. It’s about using posture to understand and transform yourself.”
~ B.K.S. Iyengar, “Light on Yoga”
I really wanted to stay in bed this morning. After a string of unusually hot and still days, our wonderful tradewinds have returned. It was nice and cool, as I lay under my sheet, lost in a dream. But a lone seagull’s call kept piercing my silence, almost like I’d put my alarm on snooze.
So I got up. This is my yoga practice.
