Mind Over Madness





Yoga is a scientific system that makes you the master of your senses
Instead of being a slave to them.
Yoga is not just standing on your head, as many people think, 
but learning how to stand on your own two feet.
Yoga is not a religion. Yet it embraces all religions.
Yoga can teach the young the wisdom of age
and teach the old the secret of youth.
Yoga will introduce you to someone you might not know.
Your Self.

-Swami Satchidananda-

The lovely passage above was read by Laughing Lotus co-founder Dana Flynn during the evening class (the which culminated at sunset!) at Athleta's Mind Over Madness Summer Solstice in Times Square yesterday.  I attended the FOURTH class of the day - I can't begin to imagine how hard all the organizers worked yesterday herding thousands upon thousands of yogis in the busiest place in New York City.  Not to mention the intense, intense heat the first day of summer brought us yesterday.  It was a great event and a wonderful way to bring us into summer!
