Writer’s Theme: COURAGE

August 1, 2015 - August 31, 2015

What does courage have to do with yoga?

Each time you step on the yoga mat or sit in meditation, you embark on a journey into the unknown; your own inner journey of self-exploration. Stepping up to that challenge, to that practice, takes courage. This month we’re exploring all aspects of courage: tips to cultivate courage, stories of courage, courage in starting, overcoming fear and failure, dealing with change, asanas for courage, meditation for courage, courage-cultivating pranayama, and more.

Quotes on Courage:

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. ~T. S. Eliot

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. ~Nelson Mandela

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. ~Anais Nin

Let us not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless when facing them. ~Rabindranath Tagore

It takes courage! ~Cowardly Lion, Wizard of Oz
