Tranquility Gentle Heart Yoga is beneficial for the body AND the mind.  Loreta, Tranquility owner and manager, shared the following poem at morning huddle.  She was inspired to pass it along after Ellie, Tranquility Yoga instructor read it to her class.

IT IS PEACE

What does stillness sound like?

What does it sound like when you

Turn off the television set and cell phone?

What does it sound like when you

Take a break from talking

With family, friends and colleagues?

What does it sound like in your mind when you

Turn off the constant stream of thoughts?

What does stillness sound like?

 

What does stillness feel like?

Does it feel uncomfortable?

Unfamiliar?

Rejuvenating?

Calming?

What does stillness feel like?

 

What would happen if you stopped thinking about the past?

Stopped replaying the same tapes over and over in your mind?

What would happen if you stopped thinking about the future?

Always waiting with anticipation for what is next?

What would happen if you brought your focus to this moment?

This breath coming in…

This breath going out…

 

What is this?

When you hear stillness,

When you feel stillness,

When your focus is only on this moment?

 

It is Peace.
