I instruct you to use these poses & your breath to help you let go of tension. I do believe it actually works. We breath, sweat, strengthen and stretch and tension leaves the body.

But there are other routes. One is forgiveness. Forgiveness can be a loaded word, so please keep it simple and straightforward so it works for you. So, for all the ways we clench or list to the right, or hold onto anger, sadness or fear …. what about “forgiving your muscles and joints for not forgetting, for keeping that imprint alive”. When you feel that pang in your heart or that ache in your bones, understand it’s your life trying to be remembered.

Maybe another route to releasing tension and tightness from your mind and body is to forgive yourself.

What is the key

To untie the knot of your mind's suffering?


Is the esoteric secret

To slay the crazed one whom each of us

Did wed

And who can ruin

Our heart's and eye's exquisite tender


Hafiz has found

Two emerald words that



That I now cling to as I would sacred

Tresses of my Beloved's 


Act great.

My dear, always act great.

What is the key 

To untie the knot of the mind's suffering?

Benevolent thought, sound

And movement.
