My yoga instructor at Focus Yoga in Brookfield read this to us as we rested in some peaceful postures. I was so moved.  It applies to so many other areas of our lives. Let us choose life and optimism, strength, and courage! paz.
I'm sorry I don't know the author.....let me know if you do.

Yoga is not about being bendy….

It’s about showing up to your mat consistently not knowing what is going to happen and being ok with that. 

It’s about rehabilitating yourself and not believing the “experts” when they say you are too injured or too old. 

It’s about believing that you can do anything even if it’s the most scariest impossible thing you could ever dream of. 

It’s about uncovering who you really are. 

It’s about being kind to yourself so that you can then be kind to others. 

Yoga is about discovering that most of the crazy thoughts in your head are not true. 

It’s about being healthy without pushing yourself to your limit. 

It’s about slowing down to get strong. 

It’s about breathing and moving and smiling on the inside. 

It’s the hardest thing I have ever done, but also the best.
