“You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.”  — Sharon Gannon


“Meditation gives us the opportunity to have an open, compassionate attentiveness to whatever is going on.  The meditative space is like the big sky – spacious, vast enough to accommodate anything that arises.” – Pema Chödrön
