  1. “Our bodies are the canvas of our emotions, and most often, we let the world paint it.” ~ Natasha Potter

 

  1. “Yoga is for everyone. You need not be an expert or at the peak of physical fitness to practice the asanas described...Yoga helps to integrate the mental and the physical plane, bringing about a sense of inner and outer balance, or what I term alignment. True alignment means that the inner mind reaches every cell and fiber of the body.” ~ B.K.S. Iyengar

 

  1. “You can plant a tree to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, a promotion or a business success. Tree hugging is the easiest yoga art to connect you with nature.” ~ Amit Ray

  1. “The mind & body are not separate entities. The gross form of the mind is the body & the subtle form of the body is the mind. The practice of asana integrates & harmonizes the two. Both the body & the mind harbor tensions or knots. Every mental knot has a corresponding physical, muscular knot & vice versa. The aim of asana is to release these knots. Asana release mental tensions by dealing with them on the physical level, acting somato-psychically, through the body to the mind.” ~ Swami Satyananda Saraswati, Asana Pranayama Mudra Bandha

 

  1. “Every breath away from the awareness of the present moment is a step away from the Self.” ~ Joseph Cyrus

 

  1. “The number of seconds the average person spends in the present moment in a year does not amount to even a single day.” ~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana

  1. “Yoga is her favorite superpower.” ~ Efrat Cybulkiewicz

 

  1. “True alignment means that the inner mind reaches every cell and fiber of the body.” ~B.K.S. Iyengar

 

  1. “You are not that which you experience. Because there is always. A subject to the experience. That subject… Is YOU!” ~ SantataGamana, Kriya Yoga Exposed

 

  1. “...It is perfectly obvious that I, as the conscious witness of my experience, am not the deep cause of it.” ~ Sam Harris, Free Will

 

  1. “Knowing Oneself by oneself. Is using our present consciousness—oneself. To know the Infinite Consciousness—Oneself,” ~ SantataGamana, Kriya Yoga Exposed

 

  1. “Living life to the fullest takes a lot of dedication and hard work, especially when the going gets tough. However, If we have the courage to pay close attention to the wisdom that can be found within Yoga, we can conclude that Yoga is both a challenge and a triumph opportunity from which we can grow, much similar to living life. This ancient form of exercise goes deeper into the connection between mind, body, and spirit. It lies in the desire to excel oneself. Through self-love.” ~ Efrat Cybulkiewicz

 

  1. “The future has never worried itself about a human being.” ~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana

 

  1. “And also those who are free, through the powers of meditation and yoga, perceive established in themselves like reflections in a mirror.” ~ Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Mahabharata

 

  1. “Relationship with another is like gazing into a still pond. You will either see your own face reflected or the depth of the water, but never both at the same time.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Yoga? Well, we learn those complex movements and flows, so we can perfectly synchronize our breath. It’s a way of training one’s body and mind in unison. It’s a moving meditation. Just like meditation, you focus on your breath, connect to the feeling of your body, and aim to clear your mind.” ~  Natasha Potter

 

  1. “I found myself living for the ones who lost their lives.” ~ Qwana M. Reynolds-Frasier

  1. “See! Levitation is easy if we all just keep our heads on the ground.” ~  Anthony T.Hincks

 

  1. “Rise up and lift your sword, peaceful warrior. Keep it strong and steady. You've already lived and fought a thousand battles, and you're not here—again—to cower in fear and pain.” ~ Anne Clendening, Bent: How Yoga Saved My Ass

 

  1. “The miracle of yoga is not that we get to reshape the external world—to bend the laws of time and space. The miracle of yoga is that we get to reshape our perception of the external world.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Take a moment in between breaths to let yourself see what's left to be seen, all the places you've been. Your old haunts. I pass by them every day, and after all these years I'll find myself wondering if they're just facades, like the saloon fronts and gun shops of an old ghost town set. As if I can poke my head inside the doors in the light of day and see nothing but framed out rooms and sandy floors, existing for no other reason than to give structure to who I used to be.” ~ Anne Clendening, Bent: How Yoga Saved My Ass

 

  1. “Kids meditate on things, the adults meditate on the self.” ~ Abhijit Naskar

 

  1. “An advanced yoga practice has less to do with what happens when you roll out your mat and move through your practice and more to do with what happens when you roll up your mat and move through life.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Injuries happen on the yoga mat all the time, but they never happen when we are truly practicing yoga. For instance, most yoga-related neck injuries happen when you strain yourself trying to see what is happening on the yoga mat next to yours.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Most yoga practice starts with the goal of doing the extraordinary and supernatural— to place the feet behind the head, balance on one hand, or cheat the aging process. But the true practice of yoga aims at doing the natural and the ordinary—to stand on your feet, to find joy in filling the lungs, and to release with each exhalation.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Yoga and meditation not only give us the ability to enjoy the beautiful moments in life, but also the ability to fully embrace the difficult and ugly moments.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “The ego mind is like a plant growing in a very small pot. While the pot may be attractive and ornate, its size doesn’t allow the plant to express its full potential.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Meditation is a method-less act – an act of contemplation – an act of being. And this contemplation or this being is not a buddhist thing, a hindu thing or a jewish thing – it is simply a human thing.” ~ Abhijit Naskar

 

  1. But the means is not the real act itself. Seeing the method of meditation as meditation itself, is like confusing the menu for the meal. The real journey takes place when there is no means whatsoever – when the self does not need to make efforts to be the self – that’s real meditation – the meditation where you simply are who you are and do not seek methods to attain a superficial state of mind.” ~ Abhijit Naskar

 

  1. “The mantra of the victim is, “If not for the events and circumstances of the world, I would be happy.” The world is often unfair and unjust, but that alone is not enough to create a victim. Victims believe they lack the power to choose. While you may not always be able to choose the circumstances of your life, you can choose how you respond. Through spiritual practice, we can choose inner harmony even when the world around us is filled with pain, suffering, and chaos.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “In reality, the people and things that fill your life have only the meaning that you have projected onto them. When we meditate, we pause the perception projector- -however briefly—and we see the world a bit more clearly. It is in this clarity that we find wisdom, compassion, and true healing.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Through this state of flux that has defined my life, there is a part of me that has been entirely the same throughout. This changeless part of me has sat quietly witnessing, at peace and smiling softly.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Sometimes, you can learn something completely mind-blowing in yoga and then totally forget about it the minute you need it the most. Or just kind of choose to forget it. 'I don't need no philosophy, I need fixing.'” ~ Anne Clendening, Bent: How Yoga Saved My Ass

 

  1. “Given the choice, most children would have ice cream for dinner. Similarly, yogis prefer the highs of yoga, the so-called “good practice.” But just as healthy children require vegetables and whole grains, advanced yogis need to be challenged during practice. The peak experiences we have during practice may keep us coming back to the mat, but it is the difficult and unpleasant aspects of practice that make us strong and prepare us for the challenges of life.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Meditation on the self is the highest form of true method-less meditation, for it brings self-awareness – which is beyond the everyday joy and sorrow. True meditation does not put you in control of your sorrow, rather it takes your mind beyond that very sorrow, as well as joy, into the kingdom of contentment – a kingdom without ideology – without cognitive extremes” ~ Abhijit Naskar

 

  1. “I practice yoga to become flexible so I can adjust and adapt harmoniously.” ~ Debasish Mridha

 

  1. “Every day I stretch my body, mind, and soul so that stress may never touch me.” ~ Debasish Mridha

 

  1. “To practice mindfulness is to see that it is your changeless nature that truly defines you, rather than the ebb and flow of your emotional tides or the shifting directions of your thought streams.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “As you review the story of your life, you will find that growth was almost always preceded by hardship—the loss of a job, the passing of a loved one, challenges with health, the end of a relationship. Rather than avoiding pain, yoga asks us to surrender to it, to look deep into it, and to be healed by it.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “The good news is that attachment is not an industrial strength glue that binds the mind to condition-based happiness. You can free your mind at any moment by simply letting go—simply relax the mind the way you would unclench your fist.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “The only place healing can occur, wisdom can be realized, compassion can be extended, and peace can be experienced, is the present moment.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Yoga’s true gift is the recognition that while health and longevity may be nice, peace and joy are not dependent on these temporary conditions. Once a yogi recognizes this, the true journey begins.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Yoga gives you the freedom to choose, but it does not guarantee you will choose freedom.” ~Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Contrary to popular belief, the translation of vinyasa is not “sweaty practice.” Vinyasa is connecting breath and movement—a practice that has nothing to do with moving fast, accelerating the heart rate, or manifesting a pool of sweat. It does, however, have everything to do with mindful movement.” Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “If you live well, you will be shocked and surprised to see how, at the end of your life, it all turns out. But like any great novel, the clues have always been there and the plot twists and turns were hidden in plain sight.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “A gardener cannot make a seed grow. She can simply create the conditions for growth to occur and then patiently wait. A physician cannot heal the body. She can simply create the conditions for healing to occur and then patiently wait. A spiritual seeker cannot enlighten the mind or fill the heart with compassion. She can simply create the conditions for grace to pour in and then patiently wait.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Procrastination is the enemy of accomplishment—not simply because the task you are avoiding fails to get done, but because all of your other goals and objectives get mired in the same sandpit as well.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Each time we come to savasana, we practice dying—we surrender the body to the earth and prepare for our destiny in this life. Facing death and embracing mortality is the key to living. We may fear it, resist it, and spend untold hours dreading it, But our mortality is the place where our human nature comes face to face with our divine nature. In a very real sense, death is our greatest teacher and the one true guru.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “This morning after yoga, I laid in the grass and watched the white clouds go by as the Earth turned slowly, and it was the single most beautiful thing, that I started to cry.” ~ Erika B.

 

  1. “At the root of all suffering, whether personal or societal, is the false perception of separation. Yoga, in all it forms, is the practice of healing the mind by joining together that which is perceived to be separate.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “To a yogi, the breath is the anchor that keeps the mind in the eternal now. Just as an anchored boat still shifts with the wind and moves with the current, so too will the mind continue to be affected by things beyond its control. Like the anchored boat, the mind will never drift too far from its mooring once it is anchored in the breath.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Yoga happens in the last 1% of a pose.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Yoga practice is the most natural thing in the world. The body was designed to move in dynamic ways, and the lungs were crafted to breathe. The mind was created to think, reason, focus, and manifest in wild creativity. The human heart was made to feel profound love and joy, anger, grief, and despair. The fact that we now live in a world where practices like conscious movement, mindful breathing, and meditation seem odd and out of place has more to do with a world out of balance than it has to with the practice of yoga. The miracle of yoga is not that it enables us to do supernatural things, but rather to do that which is in our very nature.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Every action, whether noble or immoral, is preceded by thought. That thought may be conscious or unconscious, ignorant or mindful. The only way to act from a posture of loving kindness and compassion is to heal the mind. That is why we meditate.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “To witness your life—the highs and lows, the times of chaos, and the periods of order—without trying to control or manipulate—is the key to inner calm. This nonjudgmental observation of the world allows us to let go of condition-based happiness and embrace true contentment.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Forgiveness is not something we do; rather it is a process of reminding yourself over and over again that holding a resentment only hurts yourself. Once you embrace that truthfully, forgiveness simply happens on its own” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “All suffering in this world is a result of someone, somewhere, not living his or her life’s purpose. Through spiritual practice, your life’s purpose is revealed. Through spiritual practice, the courage to live your life’s purpose is developed. Through spiritual practice, suffering is eased—your own suffering and the suffering of the world.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Mindfulness joins the mind with the present moment, where the illusion of time dissolves without effort, where cause and effect are correctly seen as unbroken, unbreakable, and inseparable.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Duality—dark and light, good and evil, high and low—defines more than just the external world. It is the essence of the body, heart, and mind as well. To be at peace with the duality of the world, we first need to be at peace with the ebb and flow of our own emotional, mental, and physical tides.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Rather than sacrificing logic and critical thought, yoga invites us to more fully use our ability to think and reason. Rather than asking us to deny our emotions—the light and the dark—yoga teaches us to embrace what we feel. Rather than denying the body’s appetites and impulses, yoga reminds us to trust our instincts more fully.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “A prison cell, however tastefully decorated, is still a cage.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Like other animals, humans have the inherent ability to heal and find balance. We don’t need books, or teachers, or fancy diets. The answers we seek are encoded in our cells. While we have this innate ability to heal, purification is usually a prerequisite. That is why we do hatha yoga.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “There is a need somewhere in this world that only your dharma, fully expressed, can fulfill. The reason there is such overwhelming need in this world is because an overwhelming number of people have yet to find and express their dharma.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “A mud pie is, at the end of the day, attractively packaged mud. A life spent in pursuit of comfort and leisure—of being a slave to your attachments—is, at the end of the day, attractively packaged suffering.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Hell is indeed a fiery pit—but it’s not found in death, but rather in your stomach when you fail to speak your truth, live with integrity, or allow compassion to guide you.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Praying for peace is wonderful; meditations on loving kindness and compassion are sublime; acts of generosity and healing have the power to change the world. But when all three come together in a selfless act of devotion, miracles occur.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Emotional and psychological dependency makes the heart vulnerable and prone to breaking when a relationship ends. A soft and supple heart doesn’t break, it bends. Practice yoga for the heart.” ~ Khang Kijarro Nguyen

 

  1. “The problem is not the unhappiness and disappointment you feel at harvest time; the problem is the seeds you planted last spring.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Within each being exists the voice of wisdom: a quiet and unassuming voice that longs to guide us out of darkness, to lift the veil of ignorance and shepherd the seeker to higher ground. Whether one calls it the Sadguru, the Holy Spirit, or the Still Small Voice, one thing is certain—this inner voice will never yell or compete for attention. Only by quieting the mind can this voice be heard. But when you take the time to listen—really listen—this voice is as evident as the warm sun on your face.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Spiritual practice lives at the corner of self-respect and self-discipline.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “This life is a dream—sometimes a dream of beauty— sometimes a terrifying nightmare. We will all wake from this dream eventually. Spiritual practice allows us first to transform the dream from one of terror to one of joy, and then from a dream of joy, to awakening to our true nature as Atman.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Resolutions, like all spiritual virtues, can be misused by the ego when mindfulness is absent. There are few things that will keep you in the bondage of habit like a grand resolution. It is like an empty box wrapped in the best of intentions, yet lacking anything of substance.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “To separate yourself from your weakness and look at it objectively is a very powerful thing.” ~ Russell Simmons, Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple

 

  1. “Who am I? The great inquiry indeed.” ~ Yogananda, Autobiography of a Yogi (Dutch: Autobiografie van een yogi)

 

  1. “In life one must learn how to wash their own back.” ~ Qwana M. Reynolds-Frasie

 

  1. “Fundamentalism wears many masks, but always claims a monopoly on the Truth. Many people buy into fundamentalism in much the same way people buy cola to quench their thirst. There are elements of truth in fundamentalist thinking, just as water is an ingredient in cola. But just as the water loses much of its value when artificial flavors and colors are added, Truth loses its value when guilt, shame, and rigid dogma are present. Fundamentalism is to the soul what artificial sweetener is to the body.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Typically, awareness is only directed to the pronounced sensations of the body—the pleasurable and the painful. In yoga, over and over again, we witness the sensations of the body—the pleasant and unpleasant; the subtle and the overwhelming—neither seeking nor avoiding, and regarding all equally and without prejudice. It is through this nonjudgmental observation of sensation that the wisdom of the body is received, true healing is achieved, and the door to the unconscious mind is cast open.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “They stole your style, but they couldn’t steal your glow.” ~ Qwana M. Reynolds-Frasier

 

  1. “No surrogate can birth your greatness, so let them steal. Time will reveal.” ~ Qwana M. Reynolds-Frasier

 

  1. “True happiness lies in being compassionate and appreciating the world and our circumstances, rather than being coldhearted and greedy. We often realize too late that our favorite moments are those spent simply with the people we love.” ~ Russell Simmons, Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple

 

  1. “The beautiful thing about meditation is that it allows you to access that cool guy or girl inside of you that's waiting to come out. You'll be able to access the part of you that people like to be around. The part of you that feels upbeat about things. That feels like you're moving toward your goals without frustration and anxiety. That feels ecstatic to be alive! The more I meditate, the more I have these moments.” ~ Russell Simmons, Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple

 

  1. “When we practice a yoga posture designed to challenge our balance, the use of a gazing point or drishti is a most effective way to maintain physical equanimity. The act of gazing without judgment or attachment is easily the most effective way to bring stability and balance to the pose. Likewise, when the poses of life rob us of our equanimity, gazing at the situation without attachment—without judgment—is the most effective tool we have to restore the mind to harmony.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “I understand that for beginners it isn't that easy to sit down, close your eyes, and settle into stillness. Your thoughts have gotten used to making SO MUCH NOISE! They have enjoyed too much influence over you to simply fade the first time you try.” ~ Russell Simmons, Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple

 

  1. “It has been said that the body is the temple of the spirit and the mind is the altar within that temple. When we practice hatha yoga we allow ourselves to come fully into the temple of the body—not simply as a tourist wishing to admire the fine architecture, but as a seeker on a pilgrimage of deep devotion and reverence. Meditation is the devotional practice of placing on the altar of the mind that which is sacred, holy, and revered. Just as you would not place garbage on the altar of a great temple, meditation allows a yogi to place on the altar of her mind that which is noble, pure, and free from attachment.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Most people believe that pain and suffering are synonymous—that one begets the other. A yogi recognizes that pain is an unavoidable aspect of life and that suffering is a choice. Pain is what happens when you stub your toe, suffering is what your mind does with the sensation.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “After my first experience via yoga, I became incredibly focused on experiencing that sense of stillness again. The stillness that reminded me that I could be a better person, a better friend, a better citizen of the world, as well as a better businessman.” ~ Russell Simmons, Success Through Stillness: Meditation Made Simple

 

  1. “It may seem humble to belittle yourself, but it is every bit as arrogant as grandiosity. Just as it is impossible to be more than you were created to be, it is also impossible to be less. When we pretend to be more or less, we are destined to search for wholeness everywhere except where it actually resides—within.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “The great paradox is that sitting quietly with unanswered questions is the doorway to wisdom, balance, and peace.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Just as the light bulb allows the electricity within it the opportunity to express its power, the body allows prana—life energy—to express itself. In yoga, our goal is to slowly increase the wattage of the subtle body, allowing prana to flow within us and through us, leaving health and balance in its wake.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living

 

  1. “Even after years of practice, I’m continually astounded that all I really need to heal my body, open my heart, and still my chaotic mind is twelve square feet.” ~ Darren Main, The River of Wisdom: Reflections on Yoga, Meditation, and Mindful Living
