“Yoga is the calming of the fluctuations of the mind’
Yoga Sutra 1.2
Yoga is often seen as a physical practice, and the typical first thought of someone thinking about trying yoga is “I’m not flexible enough to do yoga”.
But in the foundational texts that explain the meaning and practice of yoga, the physical aspect receives very little mention.
And that’s because yoga is primarily a study of the human experience - and specifically our minds.
Thousands of years ago, wise yogis explored, dissected, and described various reasons for our mental afflictions.
And then they found ways to alleviate those afflictions. THANK GOD!
Fast forward to our present day and yoga, meditation, and mindfulness are as relevant and impactful as ever in our hyper-connected society.
Moreover, these practices are heralded by some of the most distinguished artists and creators of our time.
And that’s because our most authentic and creative energy lies beneath the surface of our minds - in a deeper aspect of our being.
With committed practice we begin to access more subtle layers of ourselves and connect with increased levels of serenity, creativity, self-assuredness and wholeness.
