"It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on this earth as though I had a right to be here."
"I’m not a psychic but I do believe we are at a crossroads. Some people practice yoga strictly for physical health. Programs like YAS, yoga and spin who’s tagline is, “No Chanting, No Granola, No Sanskrit.” have a market. But people who practice yoga solely for the purpose of trimming their thighs and getting a “yoga butt”, are undoubtedly short-changing themselves. If we look for happiness in this material world, which is temporary and constantly changing, to that same degree we become attached to that happiness, we will suffer when it is gone. So if you want cheap momentary happiness you know where to find it, otherwise, we have to turn within and connect with our Highest Self. That is real yoga. I pray that this is the future."
Kumi Yogini, on the future of yoga.
"I want to fall to sleep with you,
and I could care less
whether it is in
layers upon layers
or only our skin–
all I really want is to wake up
where I end and you begin."
wait but this is me on the daily
