Hard to believe that we're nearing the end of this year's calendar which has been a yoking together of all of my daily practices - yoga..photography and writing. Each month has included one of my Muse-In-You-Yogi photos and an accompanying yoga sutra.
'The mind is quieted by the inhalation, the exhalation and retention of breath.'
So often it's said - just breathe. Breathe in one long slow steady breath and breathe out in that same slow and steady fashion. Focusing our mind on the simple sounds and patterns of the inhale and exhale forces us to be with ourselves right here in this present moment.
The mind is quieted. There is no where to be...not thing to do...no one to answer to.
Keep it simple. Try easy.
Release. Relax. Let go.
