A Happy Space

“There is no technique to make me happy or to make you happy.
There are techniques which can create the space for happiness to arise.”

– Judith Lasater

Doing yoga, we learn to create space in our bodies and in our minds using breath, movement and meditation.  When we slow down and settle in that space, suddenly we discover that happiness was sitting there all the time, just waiting for us to notice.
