photoI collected these pearls, class by class, as they were said by my friend and yoga instructor, Katie Z:

  1. Live in the moment, not the next pose or the next rest. Be fully present in this moment. Give it all.
  2. The rest periods after working hard are essential. Work hard, and then let yourself rest.
  3. You’re not controlling the world right now. Concern yourself with what’s happening on your mat.
  4. Breathe.
  5. Look up. You go where you look, so look up.

Admittedly, I need to do more yoga. But lessons like these bring me back to center. I revisit them when life gets chaotic. You know, daily.
