NamaSTAY Yoga Towel Review and Giveaway!

I know when I practice yoga, whether hot or otherwise, I’m usually a sweaty disaster. It’s a good disaster, but sweaty nonetheless.

  2. My favourite quote from Sharath Jois: “Everyone can do Ashtanga. Except lazy people.”

  3. my new favorite yoga quote, as said by a local instructor: “The pose begins when you want to leave it.”

  4. I quote the astounding yoga sutra: “The wisdom obtained in the higher states of consciousness is different from that obtained by inference and testimony as it refers to particulars.”

  5. “The rythm of the body, the melody of the mind & the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.”

    B.K.S. Iyengar

  6. “You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.” – Sharon Gannon

  7. “let your practice be a celebration of life” -Seido lee deBarros

  8. “In stillness all conflict must end.” Phillip Urso

  9. “He shining, everything shines through him.” – Bhagavad Gita

  10. Followed both on twitter and tweeted!

  11. Liked you both on FB and left a quote!

  12. You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state. ~Sharon Gannon

  13. “Ashtanga yoga is 99 percent practice, one percent theory.”

    Pattabhi Jois

  14. One of my favorites…
    “Remember, it doesn’t matter how deep into a posture you go —
    what does matter is who you are when you get there.
    ~max strom

  15. A quote from every one of my yoga teachers: “don’t forget to breathe!”

  16. The more we sweat in peace the less we bleed in war. -Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit

  17. “Make an attitude to be in gratitude, you will find the whole Universe will come to you.” – Yogi Bhajan

  18. “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
    Mohandas Gandhi

    Not exactly a yoga quote, but it’s one I use when meditating.

  19. ” The most important pieces of equipment you need for doing yoga are your body and your mind. ”

    Rodney Yee

  24. “Any belief, whatever it is, is counterproductive in the context of the practice of yoga. One holds a belief instead of knowing. For example, you wouldn’t say you believe in your right ear, since you know your ear, no belief is required. Believing always excludes knowing. When jnana (supreme knowledge) comes through the practice of yoga, you will know. Do not be satisfied with believing.” -Gregor Maehle

    “The world is the gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.” – Swami Vivekananda

  31. Natasha Damiani says:

    In the spirit of yoga girl….
