Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: Why, where and how did you start practicing yoga? We all have a different reason, pace and place. But, if you've stuck with it, it's likely because of the love of the practice and the personal growth that yoga brings, not because it's on the workout "To Do" list. The author (who is now a yoga instructor and studio owner) talks about her journey into the yogic life and how it has changed her.

Above the mountains
the Geese turn into
the light again
on an open sky...
Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: Summer reminds me of travel - taking journeys both short and long to places we may know and to places where we are unfamiliar. David Whyte's poem "The Journey" speaks about a different kind of travel: the journey to find Self. Perhaps this summer you will find time to reflect on your own journey--to find 'the one line already written inside of you."
