19 Quotes about creating space, stillness and the power of silence

This month, April 2021, inside MerryBody the collective theme is all about SPACE.

Creating space. Enjoying space. Taking UP space.

Space for purpose. Space for magic. Space for love. Space for stillness. Space for speaking up. Space for silence… Space for YOU.

Inside MerryBody we’re encouraging all of our Members to use their Yoga and Pilates practice as a time to do all of the above. And we encourage you to do the same… to create some space just for you.

You create this space so you can then fill it up with all that you need and desire.

It’s about letting go, surrendering… and at the same time… welcoming in, receiving. This ebb and flow.

To inspire you… we found 19 of our favourite quotes about space, stillness and the power of silence.
