With a Sukha Mukha-smile

As I keep running through life - from schools and daycare to the news agency, where the turmoil in Libya and tragic events in Japan keep us more than buzy - I think of something my dear yoga teacher keeps preaching. It´s kalled sukha mukha and it could be translated into "happy face yoga". Sukha means joyous, happy or blissed and Mukha is face. My techer want´s me to put on a happy face even when the poses are more than challenging. As with everything on the yoga mat, this can be translated into everyday life. The attitude and level of stress we bring into an assignment has a big impact on what we make out of it. Worth thinking about while running to our loved ones.

Our house-Buddha never leaves his calm.
