“Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted — in body, mind, and heart — and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow — or we begin to flow more in our lives.” - Cybele Tomlinson

"Don't try to be strong, simply refuse being weak."

“We are not born wise. We are born with intuition, but we are also born with ignorance. Wisdom only comes to us through overcoming our struggles. Wisdom is the metamorphic transformation that occurs within us, as ignorance is transcended and becomes knowledge. Through wisdom, our veil of darkness dissolves and with clarity we can finally see path of light guiding us into the future.” – David Scott

“A scar is proof that healing has occurred.”

Surrendering all thoughts of outcome, unperturbed, self-reliant, he does nothing at all, even when fully engaged in actions. There’s nothing that he expects, nothing that he fears. Serene, free from possessions
