Good morning! It’s a cold, very rainy day here in Winston-Salem. I went to a fantastic yoga class this morning at Paz Studios. It will definitely be my Sunday “yoga church” going forward. The instructor, Elliott, took a few minutes at the end of class to talk about the meaning of sutras and why yoga was ultimately developed – to quiet the mind. He spoke about how he does a lot of balancing poses and said it’s to help quiet the chatter in our heads, and reminded us that if our head has a lot chatter/distractions going on, we won’t be able to balance. Each week we’re going to continue the discussion on sutras and the mind using the book The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali as our guide. He said it’s a must read if you’re into yoga.
Lots of good reads that I’ve collected over the last few weeks. Enjoy!
