Tattoo It – venice class – Jul 30, 2015 th

Excerpt from full talk.

Erich: The big deal, remember, like I was saying the other day, is it's all about lifestyle — the way you do your thing. Yoga is a lifestyle. It is not a PE class. It's a mind-state with which you live your life.

The main homework, the way I am presenting it, is called the holy instant. The essence of that is whenever it occurs to you, pause and wonder, "What is the truth here, really?"....
