Quote of the Day

“When your body, mind and soul are healthy and harmonious, you will bring health and harmony to those around you and health and harmony into the world- not by withdrawing from the world but by being a healthy living organ of the body of humanity.”

B.K.S. Iyengar, from The Tree of Yoga

Quote of the Day

“Until you destroy your body, you don’t learn to appreciate it. Treat the body like a temple because the body is so beautiful. If and when you understand your body then you will respect it. The body is like a bud, until the sun rises it will not bloom, until it blooms it will not be beautiful or give perfume. So respect it, take care of it.”

Bikram Choudhury

Quote of the day

“The body is first in yoga. Mind is important, it can make you Hitler or can make you Jesus. But body is most important; if the body is destroyed there is no mind. You can be the worst person but you can come back and change yourself. If you lose your mind there is hope you will return, but if you lose your body it is over.”

Bikram Choudhury

Quote of The Day

“Being in a state of silence when you have come into a posture is soothing and even magical, but you cannot connect with that state except by knowing how you got there and knowing where you’re going. If you jerk from posture to posture you cannot enjoy the journey, and the journey is just as important as the destination.”

from Anatomy of Hatha Yoga by Dr. H. David Coulter
