On being a mother: "It took me ten years to learn
the asanas well, then two children to forget about it, but the Yogic
experience I got from that was more than any asana could ever give me."
On being a grandmother: "Being a grandmother I
do Yoga in Grand style."
On a woman's cycles: "A woman should learn to
listen to her cycles and take rest rather than pushing forward on days
On women: "Men are stronger than women physically,
but women are more talented yogis. Yoga."
Through the various stages of life, yoga practice naturally changes
it's form and becomes much more than just an asana. Being a woman. mother
and householder with important responsibilities, our energy is redirected
at times and our yoga practice gives us the courage to embrace change.
The constant which always remains, is the clarity and balance that the
ashtanga yoga practice gives. The years of practice become a framework
for how we live our lives each and every day.
