Week 36.1 Sept 2 - I am rooted but I flow

“The most important part that happens during a yoga class, is not what happens outside the body, but what happens inside the body.” David Scott

“I am rooted but I flow, I am grounded but I bend. I am deep but my worries are shallow. My dreams and hopes are limitless, but I am content where I stand. What I own is meaningless, how little I truly need allows me the freedom and lightness to fly. Never intent on arriving, it is the journey where I explore my passions. I have the heart of the yogi and the wisdom inspired by the Buddha.” – David Scott

Life is a balance of holding and letting go.

“The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.”- Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

“The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.” –Dalai Lama

“Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.” ~ Alan Cohen

Practice and all is coming… “Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory.” - Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois

“Yoga is a dance between control and surrender – between pushing and letting go – and when to push and to let go becomes part of the creative process, part of the open-ended exploration of your well-being.” –Joel Kramer

“To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” - Buddha

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.” – Buddha

Yoga teaches us to create a life that feels good on the inside and not just the outside.

“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

“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently through the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.” - Apache Blessing
