Samskara

Images
I am reading this wonderful new book by Dani Shapiro. I love her definition of samskara.

"Yogis use a beautiful Sankrit word, samskara, to describe the knots of energy that are locked in the hips, the heart, the jaw,the lungs. Each knot tells a story- a narrative rich with emotional detail. Release a samskara and you release that story. Release your stories, and suddenly there is more to breathe, to feel, to experience the world."

I wonder what stories I will release in yoga this week?
