Do enjoy when teachers read quotes during yoga class? I find concise and inspiring words can be motivating and eye-opening on the mat. Here are a few of my favorite impactful quotes plus a funny one.
Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.-B.K.S. Iyengar
“The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.” ~T.K.V. Desikachar
A photographer gets people to pose for him. A yoga instructor gets people to pose for themselves.T. Guillemets
“There will always be people who can do it better than you, but that's a good thing! Start to see competition as inspiration — without envy.” ~ Kathryn Budig
"The yoga mat is a good place to turn when talk therapy and antidepressants aren’t enough." ~Amy Weintraub
"I would like for people to realize that yoga is not about touching your toes." ~Gary Kraftsow
I was in yoga the other day. I was in full lotus position. My chakras were all aligned. My mind is cleared of all clatter and I'm looking out of my third eye and everything that I'm supposed to be doing. It's amazing what comes up, when you sit in that silence. Mama keeps whites bright like the sunlight, Mama's got the magic of Clorox 2.-Ellen DeGeneres
