The prize is in the process

This is one of the best posts about the process of Yoga I have seen in a while from one of my most inspirational yoginis. Enjoy her Lucid insight and pragmatic advice, simple and profound elegant but with a heavy impact. In essence, it is amazing, like an elephant 🙂

Meet Rusty. Rusty the yoga elephant.
