Your breath is your freedom.
To find out why, try this:
Next time you’re presented with a situation
or an interaction that is daunting,
allow your breath to take precedence
over your assumptions, projections, words or actions.
before making any choice about what to think,
how to respond or what to do next.
In this way, you are using your breath to
make s p a c e in your experience
instead of adding yet more content.
This practice of taking pause,
both in your yoga class and in your life,
dispels unnecessary negativity, activity;
and creates the only context for equanimity.
Blessings and gratitude~
