There is a beautiful parallel between bamboo and yoga. Bamboo symbolizes strength, acceptance of the natural flow and openness to wisdom in emptiness. Just like yoga, bamboo means commitment to continuous growth and living a simple and straightforward life. It combines upright integrity with accommodating flexibility. Both, yoga and bamboo have the perfect balance of grace and strength, or the Yin and the Yang to create a wholeness, peace, and happiness.
Be like bamboo. Be strong yet flexible. Commit to continuous growth. Bend but don’t break.
