What is Yoga?

Yoga is a practice of presence – of tuning in to the divine wisdom of your body.

When you stop to listen, you realize there is so much going on in every pose, even the easy ones.

Yoga is a practice of self-awareness, like a poem or a prayer moving through your body. Each breath allows you to ride this wave of consciousness, drawing you ever inward.

It is as the beautiful soul B.K.S. Iyengar said: 

“It is through your body that you realize you are a spark of divinity.”
