Here are some splendid words about yoga for us to seek inspiration and get motivated on this International Yoga Day.
Yoga is not a religion. It is a science, science of well-being, science of youthfulness, science of integrating body, mind and soul.
Yoga is not just doing some exercise, it is much more. It is to expand your awareness, sharpen your intellect and enhance your intuitive ability.
Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.
Yoga is not a work-out it is a work-in, and this is the point of spiritual practice to make us teachable to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.
Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.
Yoga practice can make us more and more sensitive to subtler and subtler sensations in the body. Paying attention to and staying with finer and finer sensations within the body is one of the surest ways to steady the wandering mind.
Yoga is a method to come to a nondreaming mind. Yoga is the science to be in the here and now.
Yoga is invigoration in relaxation. Freedom in routine. Confidence through self-control. Energy within and energy without.
Yoga is the dance of every cell with the music of every breath that creates inner serenity and harmony.
Life’s too fast…Slow down and do yoga 🙂
