A slow and steady flow of breath
focuses awareness. As inner
concentration grows, a hidden
landscape flows into view.
Sensations, emotions, thoughts,
and what lies beyond all these -
the source of light and energy -
comes clear. Steadiness and ease
are key and so is permission to be
free of rules and old beliefs.
It takes years of discipline to know
what rules to break, what ritual
to upend next, and when simply
sitting with a quiet breath
is the best step to take.

Enjoy this inspiring poem from Danna Faulds, shared at Monday’s Gentle Flow Yoga practice.

When we focus inwards and guide our breath, we move energy and discover clarity. There is an inner knowing that shines a light on what is true… and how we can be in the world.
