Quotes & Music for Inspiration

Need a little pick-me-up or inspiration? Below are some quotes and poems that I felt like sharing with you today. I've also attached Jason Mraz's new song "3 Things". (He must do Yoga!) It's a beautifully uplifting song about the three things he does when his life falls apart. We are constantly trying to "hold ourselves together" but in reality, life throws curveballs and we "fall apart". Let it happen, learn, grow, smile, cry, practice Yoga, go to Barre or Pilates, love, dance, and keep moving forward. CLICK HERE FOR JASON MRAZ SONG.

Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend to the fullest!

"Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self." - The Bhagavad Gita

"No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." -Aesop

"Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be Kind. Always." - unknown

"The asana requires us to take responsibility for our physical as well as our mental attitude. Good attitude, good results; bad attitude, bad results…The body language of mastery is the body language of balance, confidence and grace, precision and simplicity. It is the body language of a positive attitude. Practicing asana, we have the opportunity to bring our internal and external attitudes into alignment."
-Rolf Gates, 'Medications from the Mat'

"Human beings are
Soft and supple when alive,
Stiff and straight when dead.
The myriad creatures, the grasses and trees are
Soft and fragile when alive
Dry and withered when dead.
Therefore, it is said:
The rigid person is a disciple of death;
The soft, supple, and delicate are livers of life.
An army that is inflexible will not conquer.
A tree that is inflexible will snap.
The unyielding and mighty shall be brought low;
The soft, supple, and delicate will be set above."
-Lao Tzu
