The Exhale

"The exhale will save your life." Simple, but profound, words from my yoga teacher today. (What is it about being in Downward Dog that makes the words seep in so completely?) What we let go of makes us who we are as much as anything we accumulate. Who would we be if we could really, fully, exhale, let go, release, be present? And why is it sometimes so hard to...simply...exhale?

Here's a good article on living in the the moment, I'm exhaling like crazy.
