'When you allow your body to let go and simply receive the fullness of yoga, it can engulf you. You begin to radiate the purity of the practice. No longer 'doing' yoga, instead you embody yoga. Let it fill your cracks, your pores and creases so that it may break up and lift the accumulated past that has come to rest in the muscles and joints. As these layers of gathered past come to the surface, they shed in their own manner, often looking like an imbalance or upset within the emotional, mental or physical aspects of ones self. When this happens, keep going. They have simply risen to be released and in doing so, create more space for the power of the practice, the richness of yoga to lay it's wisdom, it's alignment.'
