Freedom

Either the goal of yoga is to be free, or the goal of yoga is to get it right. 

You can't really have it both ways. 

Because if you choose freedom, you have to divest yourself of that crazy idea that you have to get it right. 

- Leslie Kaminoff, world-renowned yoga teacher

I've been reflecting lately on what it means to practice yoga lately, and this quote seemed particularly beautiful. Asana is a gateway to something deeper. The poses are a helpful step toward self-realization, but they are not the whole point. Reaching a place of compassion, of love, that is far more important.

Namaste, beautiful ones.
