Cultivate: Precision & the Instinct of the Body
Uncover: your own Practice
Fall: in love with Breath
“Do not kill the instinct for the glory of the pose. Do not look at your body like a stranger, but adopt a friendly approach toward it. Watch it, listen to it, observe its needs, its requests, and even have fun. To be sensitive is to be alive.
Yoga is an effortless dance with breath and gravity.”
“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self” -The Bhagavad Gita
