When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.
– Peace Pilgrim
Our cause is yoga. Our effect is connection.
There is something so deeply inspirational and motivating about practicing alongside other yogis. After a while of seeing the same faces time and time again, these people become personal to you: their triumphs become your triumphs; their joys become your joys. But it works the other way around; they become thrilled when they see your practice has been making obvious progress; when your face isn't there, they want to know why. This is community, this is the tribe. This is what, in Sanskrit, is called your "kula"; the group of people who come alongside one another with the same cause.
"The success of yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships."
— T.K.V. Desikachar
A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.

Each soul has its own note to sing in the divine chorus and no voice is more important than another.
