Blessing must arise from within your own mind. It is not something that comes from outside. When the positive qualities of your mind increase and the negativities decrease, that is what blessing means. The Tibetan word for blessing … means transforming into magnificent potential. Therefore, blessing refers to the development of virtuous qualities you did not previously have and the improvement of those good qualities you have already developed.

Moving for Balance - "Consciousness is only possible through change; change is only possible through movement.”
— Moving for Balance
Yoga means “union” – the union of mind, body, and spirit. There is far more to yoga than the beneficial practice of postures, or asanas.
Yoga is finding balance, and union, in all aspects of our lives. Moving our bodies in ways that help us feel peaceful and connected with everything around us – whether it’s a brisk walk, a focused run, or an hour of yoga – can shift our awareness. Exercise helps us feel open and alive, rebalances our perspective, improves our physiology, and allows us to experience all aspects of ourselves, in harmony.
Our centering thought for today is: I am flexible, powerful, and balanced.
“Consciousness is only possible through change; change is only possible through movement.” — Aldous Huxley
