Tag Archives: ahonui


Peanut Butter and Juli has a beautiful post on the Hawaiian word ahonuiAhonui can be translated as patience, perserverence and many breaths.  It was the breath part that caught my attention and made the connection to the practice of yoga.  At its core, ahonui means yoga, and yoga means ahonui.  The power of patience, perserverence and breath can take you through challenges you never thought possible.

I’d like to re-echo Juli’s question here, for my yogis and readers:

What does ahonui mean to you?
