atha yoganusasanam

“here and now begins our yoga.”

the first sutra in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali….  a text compiled and written somewhere in the span of 100 BCE - 500 CE.  this first sutra or “suture” reminds us that now is always the moment in which we can begin, again and again, to practice and take a step on the path.  whether it is in the way we place our foot on our mat or execute our most passionate dance move.  whether it is in the way we speak to our loved ones or in the compassion we hold for ourselves, this is all workable in this moment.  we can always begin again.
