We spend too much time trying to fix everything.

Living Your Yoga: Write down the three most common thoughts you have about how you should fix yourself and others.  Remember, trying to fix yourself and others never really works.  Instead, revel in your individuality and celebrate the uniqueness of others.

Work in a way that does not create more stress.

Living Your Yoga: Work is necessary but making it stressful is not.  When you go to work today, breathe before you answer the phone and pause for one breath before you answer your boss.

A yoga practitioner is one who neither runs from nor seeks out pain.

Living Your Yoga: If your usual yoga practice is strong and stimulating, today try restorative yoga poses instead.  If your practice is gentle, today do five of your hardest poses. Cultivate a nonjudging mind while you do them.

Be with what is.

Living Your Yoga: Look out your window right now and see what is there: a perfectly manicured lawn, a busy sidewalk, an old shed falling down. Breathe it in.

Yoga practice allows the pain that is already in us to be experienced.

Living Your Yoga: When you practice your poses today, do not think of the gentle discomfort you feel as a problem.  Remember that the tightness in your muscles is just your suffering trying to get out.

Suffering comes from our unwillingness to be present.

Living Your Yoga: Today notice five recurring thoughts that take you away from your life as it is.  Write them down.  When you have a chance, burn the paper lovingly, and let those thoughts drift away with smoke.

Yoga is willingness to be present.

Living Your Yoga: You can practice yoga all day, not just on your mat.  How?  When you are truly present, you are practicing yoga.  Throughout your day, repeat this Mantra for Daily Living: Right here, right now.
