When suffering is met with love, it becomes compassion.
Marianne Elliott
Pressing into handstand, doing complicated arm balances, and experimenting with deep backbends makes for good social media clips. They are striking, inspiring poses that speak to our aspirations. They are also good interesting things to include in advanced classes. But, let’s not get carried away-or become convinced that harder poses always provide more benefits that simple poses. Feel free to experiment and challenge your students, but make sure that your classes are chock full of postures that your students can do with precision and care.

You can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion, for yourself and those around you.
Lupita Nyon’o
Mindfulness is not a special state you achieve through a trick or technique. It is a way of being.
Jon Kabat-Zinn
And slowly, there may come a point when you think that while you can’t change your own destiny, you may be able to help others.
Judith Mangelsdorf
We are always the same age inside.
Gertrude Stein
If we weren’t learning, we wouldn’t be here.
Doreen Virtue
People may call what happens at midlife “a crisis,” but it’s not. It’s an unraveling-a time when you feel a desperate pull to the live the life you want to live, not the one you’re “supposed” to live. The unraveling is a time when you are challenged by the universe to let go of who you think you are supposed to be and embrace who you are.
Brené Brown
I’m not in competition with anybody but myself. My goal is to beat my last performance.
Celine Dion
Balance is not static-it’s finding stillness within movement. Suffering is unpleasant, but heralds goodness.
