Yoga Class Theme Idea

How To Theme A Yoga Class Around A Quote 

Make sure you weave the quote into your yoga class lots of times during the class.  Don’t just mention it once at the beginning of the class.   Repeat the quote over and over and over again.  It’s almost impossible to say it too many times.


Here are some quotes you could theme your class around…

“You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.”

“You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.”

“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.”

“When asked what gift he wanted for his birthday, the yogi replied: “I wish no gifts, only presence.”

“When the breath wanders the mind also is unsteady. But when the breath is calmed the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath.”  ~ Hatha Yoga Pradipika

“Peace is every step.  The shining red sun is my heart.  Each flower smiles with me.  How green, how fresh all that grows.  How cool the wind blows.  Peace is every step.  It turns the endless path to joy. ”  ~  Thich Nhat Hanh

“Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.” ~ B.K.S. Iyengar

“Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory.”  ~  Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois

“If I’m losing balance in a pose, I stretch higher and spirit reaches down to steady me. It works every time, and not just in yoga.”

“Yoga has a sly, clever way of short circuiting the mental patterns that cause anxiety.”  ~ Baxter Bell  

“Concentrating on poses clears the mind, while focusing on the breath helps the body shift out of Fight or Flight mode.”  ~ Melanie Haiken
