Boat Pose Quotes

You could memorise a quote and repeat it several times throughout the class. Maybe the quote could morph into yoga class theme?

Quotes you could use for boat pose…

“Yoga is pure cause & effectthe smallest daily practice can have a profound domino effect as you journey through life, just as a tiny wave can turn into a tsunami.”

May the sails of your soul always billow with fresh winds of wisdom

“Raise your (legs) sails high. A sail redirects the power of the wind to propel a boat. What needs redirecting in your life right now?”

“The winds of inner peace are blowing all the time. All you need to do is raise your sails to discover it.”

“To reach a port we must set sail – Sail, not tie at anchor.  Sail, not drift.”

This beginning motion, this first time when a sail truly filled and the boat took life and knifed across the lake under perfect control, this was so beautiful it stopped my breath.”

Sailing a boat calls for quick action, a blending of feeling with the wind and water as well as with the very heart and soul of the boat itself. Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford.”

“A boat is a vehicle that allows you to move move from point A to point B quickly and more safely than swimming. Metaphorically speaking our subconscious is our vehicle. How we navigate our subconscious will be the wind in our sail, or the storm on our sea.”

“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”

“The doldrums is a low-pressure area around the equator where the prevailing winds are totally calm.  Ships with sails could be stranded for days or even weeks in the doldrums. If you strive for low-pressure in your life, you could be stranded for days or even weeks with mild depression, listlessness or stagnation. Instead of asking the Universe to give you a low-pressured life, ask for pressure and the ability to navigate your way through it.”

“Rather than fight against your “problems”, forgive and let go — resist less, struggle less, fight less, and flow more.”
