Yoga does not solve our problems.

Living Your Yoga: One of the greatest sources of our suffering is the attachment we have to finding “the solution.”  Right now practice Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog Pose) for itself, not because it stretches your hamstrings or shoulders.  Breathe and enjoy it right now.

Feel what you are feeling.

Living Your Yoga: Sit down for a moment, close your eyes, and just feel what you are feeling: be with anger, with happiness, with boredom, or fatigue.  Do not judge this feeling.  As you watch them, notice how your feelings transform.

Thinking is active; awareness is receptive.

Never throw away your filter.

Living Your Yoga: Despite the wisdom and power of the teacher, you are the only master of yourself.  Listen with a loving filter to your teacher, then absorb what resonates and let go of what doesn’t.

It’s not about what comes in but what comes up.

Living Your Yoga: We often believe that what we learn from the outside makes us better yoga students.  Today when you practice, pay more attention to your own wisdom as it comes up.
