A bit more from breath-the essence of yoga

Obviously, I can't type out too much of the book, but I'd like to include some more, hopefully inspiring some people to go out and buy and read it.

"move inside

gather all of the senses
that are usually extended towards the world
and turn them within
move them inside

intelligence, moving inwards

during the day
you use intelligence to catch words
to catch messages, to listen
to filter emotions

you don't need to do that now

use that intelligence, that capacity
to listen to what is taking place inside"


"the body loves gentleness

it is very beautiful
to follow what the body loves
the body loves gentleness

we are always so rough - 
especially when it comes to movement
movement that is born with the breath
has beauty"
