What is Yoga?




Yoga is life.  It is:

- putting my morning pages down when my daughter comes to talk and I really want to finish my entry
- rubbing our daughter's back when I really want to go to sleep
- hugging my husband longer when I really want to get to my morning meditation
- taking the dogs for their walk when I really want to finish my reading
- making a healing dinner when I really need to get on my yoga mat

Yoga is life.  It is union with the as-isness of life.  All of it - the beautiful moments, the messy moments, the sad moments, the crazy, joyous moments.  Every time I choose with kindness, I am practicing my yoga.
