Breath of Joy

When you do things from the soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

Rumi

Inspired by my partner who is taking an executive MBA program at UC Berkeley while working I'm starting (again) to write a yoga book. While math and statistics are joyful to him Pranayama & meditation are the joy of my yoga practice. So, starting this week I'm immersing in the process of birthing the Breath of Joy project and taking a short term break from my audio blog on this page. However, I'll try to post (and pose) on the Practice page (Yang Asana & Yin Asana) regularly. Time is the most precious resource. Making space or the breathing room is making time to abide in timelessness. When you are in your elements you feel the spirit moves through you. It's the pure joy of the present moment awareness. To give birth to your creativity take your time to breathe.

The Richness of Letting Go

As the embrace of the earth

Welcomes all we call death,

Taking deep into itself

The right solitude of a seed,

Allowing it time

To shed the grip of former form

And give way to a deeper generosity

That will one day send it forth,

A tree into springtime,

May all that holds you

Fall from its hungry ledge

Into the fecund surge of your heart.

John O'Donohue
