The Goal of Yoga (Rachel Brathen)

(No, it's not handstand)

The yoga pose is not the goal.

Becoming flexible or standing on your hands is not the goal.

The goal is to create space where you were once stuck. To unveil layers of protection you've built around your heart. To appreciate your body and become aware of the mind and the noise it creates. To make peace with who you are.

Shift your focus and your heart will grow.


This quote is so true to my practice and to my teaching. I believe that all souls can do yoga. I believe that everybody and everyone has a place in the yoga studio and absolutely in my online yoga community. We do not have to look alike in anyway to feel amazing in our own skin. We are all beautiful inside and out in our own way. Know you are awesome and you are loved!

This is my Mantra! I love you all!

Sending you Sunshine and Smiles! :-)
