yoga…the discipline

the yogi is like a lamp
that stays lit even when
a strong wind blows...
yoga is a harmonious co-ordination
of asanas and pranayamas
the breathing 
and the postures
the inhalation and the exhalation
calming the mind and the nerves
uplifting the human spirit
deliverance from sorrow, pain
liberation from earthly desires
disciplining intellect and emotion
perfect equilibrium of mind, soul, body
a communion of man's will
with the will of god
the ultimate spiritual bonding
with the One.

  1. This is so beautiful and true Yassy!!!! Great minds… your twin reconnected with yoga again – 4 days of consistent routines for me. Today, I started with sun salutations. Made a huge huge difference.

    I had not done it in months, and getting back I realized how much I’ve missed it.

    Beautiful verse – your words flow like yoga. That beautiful breath – fluid as water. ❤️🙏🏻 Namaste – beautiful one!

      3. I love pilates. I did them for a few years just on the floor, then God blessed me with and AeroPilates machine, which I love because it helps make sure you are aligned right so it gives you the best workout and it adds your body weight so again gives me a better workout 🙂
