I came to teach a yoga class today and a student handed me this in writing:

“All beings support Yin and embrace Yang

 And the interplay of these two forces

     Fills the Universe

 Yet only at the still-point,

 Between the breathing in and the breathing out,

 Can one capture these two in perfect harmony 

 Lao Tzu:  the Tao Te Ching”

 I thanked him and asked, “What is this for?”

“It’s our class focus for today!”


And so, from beginning to end, we let out breath guide us.  Allowing the breath to come first, and then the movements.

And as I write this now, I let my breath guide my words.  

Prem.  That’s what the breath gave me just now.  Prem means Love.  Universal Love.

Be the first to respond!
