    That is a lovely and smart set of words.

    This is a great mindset for the mat. We can easily get stuck in the asanas on the mat. What does it look like? What does it feel like? Are my hips aligned? Am I breathing? We are constantly going through a check list for each asana. But this is a great reminder that the goal isn’t proper asana – it’s about reaching the soul and allowing it to shine through. The asana is just the gateway.
