OF THE SELF,

“Yoga is not a work-out; it is a work-in."
Pure, cleansing, energetic air.
Release any constraints
IS THE HARDEST ASANA.
As we practice the asanas we become more sensitive to our weaknesses and strengths, we become more aware of our areas of tightness and of our areas of free and easy movement. This increase of awareness can help us make healthy choices that will affect us profoundly.
Don’t Travel on the Path of Yoga
Whatever Path You’re On
Take Yoga With You
Yoga will make the path easy and beautiful.

Touch has the most healing powers than anything ever invented.
It doesn’t have to necessarily need a physical touch you can be touched by anything.
When was the last time you watched the sunrise or a flower or a butterfly?
We put too much emphasis on the mind and it’s only purpose is thought.
When we think of the mind, we only think of the thought process.
The thought process is only the surface elements of the mind.
In yoga, what you’re thinking and feeling right now has no consequence because your thoughts keep recycling to each other. Citti
Love is the sweetness of your emotion.
Love is not something that you do,
it is something you can become.
Asanas and Inner Peace
Asana is all we see in the yoga world today, but it’s only a small part of the complete practice of yoga.
Yoga is part of life...there is no separation of being on the mat and off the mat.
The goal of yoga is Self -realization...not handstands, not acrobatics, not the number of likes on your social media.
What’s the point of your pose if you have no inner peace? What’s the point of your practice if you are constantly trying to prove something.
I challenge you to go within and sit with your thoughts and see what is there...this is the real work of yoga.

The eight Angas, or Limbs, are Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dhrana, Dhyana and Samadhi.
The first five of these limbs are considered the “external” limbs, the last three, “internal”.
We will consider each of these briefly.
The Yamas, or prescriptions (“what you should do”), and the Niyamas, or prescriptions (“what you should not do”), constitute the moral code of Yoga and help one cultivate the right mental attitudes.
The Asanas, or postures, aim at physical well-being and control over the body.
A healthy body is a prerequisite for a healthy and controlled mind.
Pranayama is control of Prana, or the Life Force. Such control is achieved through control of the most crude manifestation of Prana: the breath. One can control the mind only if s/he can control her/his breathing.
Pratyahara is withdrawal of the senses and is necessary if one is to achieve tranquility of the mind.
Dhrana is attention and concentration which brings the diffuse mind to a single point of focus. Prolonged Dhrana leads to a state of . . .
Dhyana, or meditation, characterized by a one-pointedness of mind. Prolonged Dhyana leads to . . .
Samadhi, the state of Self-realization. The mind is transcended, and one becomes aware of the Self and is united with It.
