“You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.”
Many people discover a therapeutic benefit when they try Yoga. While this is not its primary aim, Yoga, by its very nature places the body into a state of restoration and healing. It corrects imbalances of energy and physical posture so the body begins to heal itself. Over time hey find themselves approaching the world with a new confidence and open-ness. This change in physical posture is mirrored in a change of attitude towards the world.
Yoga works through each of us, so we become more of our true Selves and less driven by the dysfunctional and limiting habits we have accumulated over time. We all have self destructive habits and even if we are familiar with our own patterns, they can be difficult if not possible to break. Yoga offers a simple, yet remarkable solution to free us from these limiting habits that threaten our health and happiness.
As we journey to a more unified state, we discover a balanced, relaxed and open existence. We discover that everything we need to achieve and maintain this state of balance and awareness lies within us, if we can just find the stillness to discover it.
