This week an incredibly instrumental and inspirational guruji in the yoga community transcended this world for another. Through his words, his teachings, and our yoga practice, the spirit of BKS Iyengar will live on forever.
The light that yoga sheds on life is something special. It is transformative. It does not just change the way we see things; it transforms the person who sees. – BKS Iyengar
Inspiration is all around us. It is the light that glistens on the ocean’s surface; the breeze that pirouettes through trees and bushes, rustling the shiny green leaves. It is the sound of laughter, and sobs, and songs, and grunts. It is in the passion of a kiss; the comforting protection of a hug. It is the furrowed brow above eyes deep with determination. It is the disciplined student and the eager-to-learn teacher. It is in the sincerity of a smile; the vulnerability of a tear. It is in the connection we have to ourselves, and the relationships we build with others.
Inspiration is all around us. Find yours.
