YOGA AS EMBODIED PRAYER: OPENING TO JOY

We’ve all had times of happiness, fleeting, ephemeral moments that dissolve like stardust in the light of our daily lives. But when was the last time you felt joy? True joy is the experience of surrendering into the flow of the present moment, of cracking open our hard shells and allowing the Light of Life to enter. True joy is a state of being. Spend the weekend immersed in a Yoga practice that draws you into the interior space of your body and the present moment.

Do What I Can
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
