Because I’m still feeling the weight of not writing or saying too much, I was struck by this beautifully succinct description of a new yoga practice. It is, I think, fairly new to the Ashtanga Yoga New York website (which has been undergoing an update) addressing new or beginning students:
I first began practicing in 1987, and remember well the newfound joy I had of spending time each day immersing myself in my breath, the quieting of my mind, and the feeling of addressing an inner sense of being, of inner quiet, each time I practiced. The physicality of the yoga practices helped me strengthen and stretch my body, and gave me a feeling of agility that supported the new sense of purpose I felt as I engaged in a practice that was both challenging and contemplative.
