Aloha Friends,  Here are a few quotes/poems for your weekend. I like to collect these various writings to inspire my yoga or meditation practice or just for a few short words of wisdom for simple reflection. I’m happy I have a place to share my collection and I hope you find a line or two that resonates for tuning in to your practice, whatever it may be.  With Aloha,  Johanna – Maui Massage and Yoga

“Allow yourself to have fun doing yoga, don’t be too determined. Every stumble, every unsteadiness, leads somewhere.” Mark Whitwell


“If you want to become whole,

let yourself be partial.

If you want to become straight,

let yourself be crooked.

If you want to become full,

let yourself be empty,

If you want to be reborn,

let yourself die.

If you want to be given everything,

give up everything.”

by the Tao Te Ching


“Let go of the forecast you heard when you were younger

than the child now clattering up the backstairs

all laughter and gasping

for what we’re here to do.

Look down. Look at the stars.

We’re here so briefly, weather with bones.”
