What is Yoga -Yoga Today
Yoga is not a belief, it is not a faith. It is a discipline; a way of life. It takes discipline to practice yoga. That is because yoga means to live from the center of your being. At the center of your being you are balanced, flexible, strong and at peace. To get to your center takes work and that requires discipline. That is why we practice the tree. It teaches us to connect with our center where we find balance and grounded strength, while at the same time having the flexibility to sway and move with the changing winds of life.
The center of your being is without gender, color or creed. It is simply the center of your being. At your center if you hold still you will discover peace and serenity. But it takes conscious effort or discipline to find it. Let’s begin our practice.
You will come to understand yoga not through belief, but though experience. As the winds of life move you about this week draw back to your center and hold strong to your roots. It will take conscious effort. Inner peace is worth the effort. It takes discipline to find peace. This is yoga.
Namaste – I celebrate the place where our souls meet
