Stay with the Breath

Personal yoga practice in a community setting

There is only one kind of success that really matters: the success of transforming ourselves, transforming our afflictions, fear, and anger. This is the kind of success, the kind of power, that will benefit us and others without causing any damage.” – THICH NHAT HANH
