yogic space

"Rule your mind or your mind will rule you."
-Buddha

But perhaps to rule your mind, you must first rule your body.  I find that yoga helps with both.

I marvel at how it can get the blood flowing, sweat dripping, endorphins rushing, stress dissipating and mind clearing while never leaving my little corner of the earth.  Tolstoy wrote a great story on how much land does a man need; perhaps I need nothing more than the dimensions of a yoga mat.
