Thoughts and Musings

Bringing Yoga Philosophy to Everyday Life

June 14, 2018

I like taking photos of bees. I'm always amazed by them in so many ways, not least is their seeming dedication and devotion to what they do.  That seems silly when I really think about I don't! Haha!

But it got me thinking about how I relate this to the practice of yoga and how people would traditionally or conventionally understand this.

I wrote the following quite early this morning after a whole night of having the attached poster (I made of one of my bee photos) flying in my head.
