Partnership is always enhanced by converging, combining and coalescing with the gifts, talents and contributions of others. I’m reading this beauty this week. Danna Faulds eloquently evokes the true nature of yoga; yoking mind, body and spirit. Every time I read these words, I am invited into a deeper more profound and provocative relationship with my True self.

YOGA by Danna Faulds

Yoga is not about the pose.
It’s not the alignment of toes or hips or shoulders.
It’s not about the form.

Yoga is an invitation to explore,
not a command performance.
It speaks the language of the soul.

In the flow of breath and motion,
yoga coaxes us from the confines of the known,
across the silent threshold of vastness.

Yoga is the union of prayer
and movement, guided from inside.
It is healing and the joy of saying yes to life.

Breathe, relax and feel the body receive its own truth.
The seed of freedom flowers within each of us
whenever we open to what’s real.

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
