Body of fire, cool brain

“How the sun


for everyone just

so joyfully

as it rises

under the lashes of my own eyes...

I am so many!

What is my name?

What is the name

of the deep breath I would take

over and over

for all of us? Call it

Whatever you want, it is

happiness, it is another one

of the ways to enter the

fire.” ~~

Mary Oliver, from “ Sunrise” ~~

“ALL of the poses should be practiced with your head and brain in this state of quiet” Manouso Manos ~~

“During the practice of āsanas, it is the body alone which should be active, while the brain should remain passive, watchful and alert. “ BKS Iyengar, Light on Yoga, p 58.
