Hoʻoponopono

Though this was not the pose I used for this method, Ho'oponopono is a Hawaiian yoga method that uses chants that you can use in your everyday life: "Thank You", "I Love You", "I'm Sorry", and "Please Forgive Me". When you use these, you put things into perspective, making you look for reasons to be thankful and always being polite to the people around us. So, think about how different the world would be if they practiced this simple way of relieving the stresses and pain~

Don't feel discouraged!!

Starting yoga can feel discouraging, but the more you practice the better you will get. Before you know it, you will be doing those things you said you could never do!

My very first yoga teacher's teacher! To the man that brought the pure essence of yoga out into the world...I honor you!

I found this very interesting because there are so many people who teacher yoga for many reasons with not many years of practicing under their belt and mimick what they think it is like to be a yoga teacher...they miss the mark!

Pick up at yoga class! What!! Yoga isn't about picking up girls or guys for that matter. Come on people. If that's what you're really there for then why not go to the gym instead....

Oh my, this is funny! The reason I think so is because the way the teacher displays what goes on into people's mind during a yoga session. Then at the end they add the part about mariguana as if that is what you need in place of yoga. Who knows!
