I am currently rereading Beryl Bender Birch's book Beyond Power Yoga: 8 Levels of Practice for Body and Soul and loving it. Her other book Power Yoga was the first ever book I read about yoga, and it greatly influences my teaching style to this day. Her second book delves deeper into yoga philosophy and the eight limbs of astanga yoga. I am always amazed at how yoga and yoga philosophy, a practice that began thousands of years ago, is still so applicable and essential to everyday peaceful living today.

Here is your yogathought for the day from Beyond Power Yoga:

"Since success, therefore, is not really what we want, deep within ourselves we grow tired of it. You can never get enough of what you don't really want, and if you place success and fame and fortune first in your life, you'll keep struggling for more and more."
