Ahimsa is the concept of doing less harm, on the mat and off. You can never be perfect, but you can always do better, be kinder and more loving. Ahimsa is the first of the precepts set down by Patanjali, a great yogic sage. The second is Satya, or truthfulness. These two ideas are the heart of yoga. Be kind. Be honest. Everything else will fall into place.

 Shiva Shambo! Things are gonna change  - that's inevitable - so celebrate change.

As you continue to change, you have the chance to get rid of what no longer serves you - what has started to weigh you down. Letting go of old patterns and limits frees up energy, creates space, and allows for a more authentic version of you. Instead of some arbitrary benchmark, maybe what you need is a new focus in direction. What matters is this process, this journey, and the truth it reveals - both inside and out. If you really stay present, you'll learn more and reach farther than you thought you could.  

 Yoga is more than just poses and breathing, it is an opportunity to tune in. It is a practice of being present. Conscious. Aware. This has an effect on how you feel, how you move through the world, and how you treat those around you.

The purpose of our lives is to be happy.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
