Top Yoga Quotes...Ever!

I love quotes.  I find so much inspiration in them.  I have a couple books of quotations, and when I’m having an especially trying day, I pick up one of these books, turn to a random page and read the quote on that page.  And almost always, the words lift my spirit up…

Chakra Balancing leads to "The Chakra Diaries"

Leading Chakra Workshops came out of my work doing Yoga Health Retreats in Hawaii, starting 10 years ago. At the end of every yoga class, we would finish with a chakra meditation. Often, after class, my students would want to discuss specific problems in their lives that were clearly related to one chakra or another.

If today were the last day of your life...

It's raining and grey outside...what a perfect day to catch up on email, update the United Yogis website, do laundry and clean my place before friends come over later. I was surfing the Internet and came across a Steve Jobs quote he made in 2007:

Looking Glass

Yoga Sutra 1.3
