Sri is defined as radiance or resplendence. The nature of the world is beautiful, and as we brighten our inner fire, we can see this beauty more clearly, even in those moments that don't necessarily feel so divine.
Here's how our amazing community is finding beauty and paradise in their surrounding world:
"My yoga paradise is finding that amazing balance between breath and stillness, where absolutely nothing exists, but I feel the entirety of my body heart and mind filled with exhiliration, peace, warmth, and stillness."
" My yoga paradise at the moment is sharing yoga practice with my nearly-three year old daughter who likes to 'do yoga like mummy' and tells me Downward Dog is her favourite! I'm far from a perfect yogi and our shared practice never lasts that long but fills my heart with immense joy."
"My yoga paradise is when the way I feel about myself and others while I'm on my mat follows me off the mat and I know I'm becoming a better person with each practice."
"My yoga paradise is when I see my five year old twins, 11 year old or 21 year old, practicing yoga and knowing they are bringing peace and calmness to their spirits and bodies."
"My yoga paradise is at my local hot yoga studio, in child's pose leaving my stresses at the corners of my mat, breathing deeply, and living in the moment, ready to take the first vinyasa :D"
"My yoga paradise is always and everywhere within me."
"My yoga paradise is Savasana with my precious little dog lying beside me doing her own Savasana....pure bliss........."
Mary Beth Bender
" Practicing yoga in peru near macchu picchu."
"I recently found my place in the world to practice while in Kenya on a study abroad trip. There is nothing more rewarding then teaching yoga to children who experience little joy in their lives."
"As long as I am with my mat it is always yoga paradise. I am taking my mat to tahoe for wanderlust."
Y is for Yogini
"Paradise is laughter and the ability to find my path, practice, and the humor in anything. ;)"

"At our cottage in Ludington, MI on the beach facing the sand dunes ♥"
" My yoga paradise is in my mind. I see pictures of yogis and I'm impressed and intimidated by all those head stands and Pretzel-like poses, and then I swear to myself I will do it one day, but for all the reasons in the world, never got to it. maybe the first of that "one day" is this Friday morning at the community centre's yoga class..."

"My yoga paradise is my living room floor, first thing in the morning every morning. Even with all the kids' toys scattered around and dust bunnies under the couch, my mat is always a little piece of heaven! (And would be even more heavenly with this gorgeous new mat)!!"
"Love being surrounded by woods. I hike through Old Stone Fort..do a bit of yoga near the waterfalls..its so peaceful out there. It doesnt get better than that :) The birds, sound of water, even those annoying little cicadas make it enjoyable. The world truly is a beautiful place."
"I practice yoga on the back of my horse. Theres no better feeling than a back bend on the back of your best friend! :)"
"My yoga paradise would be on a patio overlooking the ocean, somewhere near the equator. Palm trees, waves crashing, Capri-colored water, white sands, and my Manduka mat there to greet me =)"
"My yoga paradise is any time I choose yoga "practice" over "perfection."
