I share this each year in our New Year’s Day Yoga class. Instead of bogging down your heart with a list of insurmountable “resolutions” … how about a simple reminder that you are worthy of a year filled with good health, strength, joy, and blessings?
These words come from Swami Satchidananda, who brought Integral Yoga to the United States in the 1960s. (If you’re from Virginia, then you may know Swami Satchidananda from his ashram at Yogaville.)
May your year be healthy, strong, joy-filled, and peaceful …
“Health is your birthright, not disease. Strength is your heritage, not weakness. Courage, not fear. Bliss, not sorrow. Peace, not restlessness. Knowledge, not ignorance. The person who aims for good health and strength of both body and mind is a gem among all humanity. Such a person possesses the true treasure.” ~ Swami Satchidanada
