A Song Called "Breathe & Smile!"

Mui Ne saigon om retreat

After the last yoga practice of our 6-Day Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat in Mui Ne in October 2018, our wonderful group of retreatants performed this heart-touching song for us. Little did we know that they had been spending time together in the evenings to write the song and practice it together. Thank you, dear friends for such a beautiful song and watering our seeds of joy!

BREATHE & SMILE

First we came to Ho Chi Minh, rode the bus to Mui Ne
Australia and Netherlands and also USA
Canadians came furthest but it was worth it just to...
Breathe and smile, breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, smile and smile and smile!

We like the lotus. We like the playfulness
We like the Vata, we like the Qi Gong
We like your teachings, they make us understand to...
Breathe and smile, breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, smile and smile and smile!

We came to Saigon in search of inner peace
Farewelled our families to find some sheer release 
The mindfulness is working if we remember just to...
Breathe and smile, breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, smile and smile and smile

We like the focus we like the challenges
We like the Pitta, we like Utkatasana
We like your stories ‘cause they inspire us to...
Breathe and smile, breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, smile and smile and smile!

We like savasana, and even suffering
After we do Qi Gong we all sit in a ring
To listen to Hang’s wisdom while Sarah teaches us to...
Breathe and smile, breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, smile and smile and smile!

We like smile-asana. We like the Kapha too
We learned to bow and bend and all about our poo!
We like your soothing voice when you sing to us…
Breathe and smile, breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, smile and smile and smile

Downward dog and Yogis choice, and food that we adore
We eat too much and drink too much and can’t get off the floor
Our response is Namaha, and then we simply need to...
Breathe and smile, breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, smile and smile and smile

Peace and joy and gratitude we all feel very blessed
Hang and Sarah live and love, they simply are the best
Namaste to everyone and don’t forget to always...
Breathe and smile, Breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, Breathe and smile,
Breathe and smile, Breathe and smile, and smile and smile and smile
