  • "Yoga doesn't want to fix or change anything about you. That's because yoga doesn't think there's anything wrong with you or that you're broken. Yoga is about using simple, gentle and creative movements to access and touch every cell of your physical body, so you can stay healthy and well. And when you breathe deep and free, you have a chance to quiet down your mind and awaken to the most incredible miracle possible - that you're alive. That you're here. So after class, someone please come tell me what could be more f'ing amazing than that - because I'd love to know." BK 3/4/13
  • Be soft in your practice. Think of the method as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall. Follow the stream, have faith in its course."Sheng-yen

Once upon a time and then they lived happily ever after. Fairy tales the stuff of dreams.The problem is fairy tales don't come true. Its the other stories, the ones that begin with dark and stormy nights and end in the unspeakable. Its the nightmares that always seem to become reality.

It's the difference between the path you walk and one you leave behind; it's the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; it's the legroom for the lies you'll tell yourself in the future."-Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult
  • You take your life for granted. You don't take care of your body, you poison it with junk food, alcohol and drugs. You are lazy and complain about not feeling well. You can change all of that! Do anything you set your mind to! Friends have told me they train only a month before they can run a half marathon. They can run, period. They can get out of bed every day on their own. I would give anything and everything to be you, and so many others would too. You only have one life. START LIVING
