As I look forward to teaching tomorrow morning, I recalled an inspiring quote from Michael Stone. This is the yoga practice that I feel most connected to and am drawn to share with others.
“Yoga is timeless. This does not mean it is eternal or ephemeral, but simply available, always in each unfolding moment, when we settle into the essence of who we are.
The great questions of life and death are settled in the stillness of the mind and the direct actions of a self unfettered by itself.
A seeming paradox at first, the yoga practitioner is nothing other that the vast range of the universe…. The essence of the body is discovered to be nothing other than the great rivers of the earth, the vast sky, and the winds of the breath.
Michael Stone from “The Inner Tradition of Yoga”
