  1. Give me a mat and i would probably curl up on it and go to sleep. I like the feel of this, though!

    1. You crack me up. When I was younger I couldn't understand the draw to yoga. Now I come to it very often, hungry for it.

  4. Yoga isn't for me... I have tried it; even went to a session by a yoga master once and tried not to fall asleep.. :-D

  8. I liked this. I remember when I first started to meditate. I thought I could shut out every sound and every thought - but felt that sounds rather than sight distracted me. Then I realized it was increasing the beauty of hearing things that thoughts usually overpower. I learned to let myself listen. This speaks to that, I think.

  10. Remembering kindergarten nap time. lol. I have my mats and yoga zone DVDs and yoga balls and there they sit. But I do meditation and have my singing bowls to let my mind "breathe". Lovely twitter verse.

  12. Tried yoga a few years ago, but more for the exercise of it. But the breathing helps

  13. I tried yoga once-- I wished I got it. But give me a cold stream to jump in, and that's all the meditation I need. Happy weekend, Jason
