“The spiritual path is a process. You are always in a state of becoming. So even though you may leave here as a yoga teacher, remain a student, because you’re still growing, still forming, still on your way to becoming a beautiful masterpiece. If you love yoga, love what you are teaching, this process will happen naturally because you will always want to perfect what you are learning." ~ Swami Kripalu

practices with the energy of truth and
transformation? What weaves individual
souls into the whole cloth of tradition,
and a great work moving forward
through the ages?
It is remembrance and the willingness to let go of form. It is bold dreams and fearless action. It is taking the teachings into the fray of everyday life, saying yes to what the moment holds. It is intractable chaos and creative commitment. It is blazing a trail, bushwhacking in the dark without a flashlight. It is riding a wave of truth with the power to change the landscape and the lives of all it touches.
