ahimsa

Above all treasure love, moderation and humility. Love begets courage, moderation creates abundance and humility generates power. Courage without love is brutish. Abundance without moderation leads to over-indulgence and decay. Power without humility breeds arrogance and tyranny.
B.K.S. Iyengar
I bought this book during the weekend and just a few pages from the book got me really… really inspired.

The words used were very humble and teaches the very soul of yoga. Somehow, after reading the book , i’ve known a little more about yoga and i find the title of the book very apt. It’s like an awakening or.. a new knowledge shining /enlightening me. This will surely affect my practices as i now know what to focus on during my pranayamas and asanas. ๐Ÿ™‚ it also gives me a new light on being a vegan and the true meaning behind it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, much thanks to furkids ๐Ÿ˜€ who twittered the name of the pose i was looking for.

It wasย Visvamitrasana

    When you shop for yoga clothes, remember that it doesnโ€™t matter how durable, comfortable, or great-looking they are, if theyโ€™re not all three, youโ€™ll notice. At SFORZA, We use only the most breathable, durable materials and employ interlock weaving technology for a smooth, tailored look. So in the gym, in your home or in a posture youโ€™ve never done before, the last thing on your mind will be your clothes.
