Daily Dose of Inspiration

“Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.”

~ James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

Hidden in the brilliant formula that is Bikram Yoga is the subtle fine tuning of the mind. You may think of the class as a workout, but you’re really using your body as a mechanism to train your mind. You develop your faith, concentration, determination, discipline and patience all at the same time. With precision, intensity and repetition you rewire the neural pathways in your brain and turn your mind back into your best friend instead of your worst enemy.

And, of course, there’s always the fact that come the end of class you’re just too tired to think. The blessings of a calm mind, make every ounce of sweat worth it, wouldn’t you agree?
