My blog is inspired by the the ever changing fluctuations and unfocused randomness of my thought processes.
I guess I think that perhaps writing some of the thoughts down will give me benefit, and offer you a spark for your own thoughts…
What does Yoga have to do with…
The simplicity of Ayurveda…
Here is an old Marie-ism to start my blog on the 4th of July 2014- may we all remember our interconnection, that we are all doing our best with what we have been given- here is a part of my best:
What is Yoga?

Yoga is not easy.

Yoga takes a moment, but you can work at it a Lifetime.
Yoga increases silence in the mind if used regularly.

Yoga allows you to be stiff, sore, flexible, soft, un-bendy.
Yoga allows you to be bored, hyper-active, distracted, calm, asleep, wired, annoying.
Yoga allows you to be good.
Yoga allows you to be bad.
Yoga allows you to be weird or silly.

Yoga is a way of seeing who we are in our environment.
Yoga is Love.
Yoga is here right now.
Feel your body breathe, inhale, exhale, and a small smile.
Yoga can be big.
Yoga can be tiny.
Yoga sees there is no right or wrong, just different ways of being.
Yoga wants us to be happy, healthy, abundant and Liberated.
Life is challenging, and with tools that support us, it will still be challenging, but we are prepared as best we can. What more can we hope for?
Apart from the unique chance to Open, Exhale and Smile.
We are all in this Life together,
