Under my skin; a yogis story!


A yogis prayer before she leaps around her mat:

‘It is my hope that as I sit here my mind will clear and the fog will lift from my eyes.

It is my hope that throughout this practice layers upon layers will shed and I will be able to expose myself to all beings.

For this opportunity I am forever grateful. Om Shanti’ (perfect peace)

A yogis prayer as she rolls up her mat:

‘To all the great ones, known and unknown who have shed their light on the path and given me the strength to follow, I am deeply immersed in your magnificence. My heart is expanded with no boundaries in sight. I am infinite, with my soul I feel no beginning and I have no end. I am floating in the beauty of wisdom in an ocean of pure love that fills all space; that always is, that only is! Om Shanti’

….and so the yogi continues on her way; mother, wife, sister, friend, student, teacher…
