🌸 “Woman doesn't need all that physical strength. Woman has basic strength; that's why kundalini is called the mother power. If woman can live righteously to a standard of a pure woman, the Kundalini Yoga will shine through her and not only shine through her but the very touch of her will convert people into that experience. They call it the glow.” -Yogi Bhajan 🌸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #moms#motherhood
