What is Yoga?
The word 'Yoga' in the Sanskrit language directly translates to 'union', to 'join' or 'to yoke'.
Yoga is an ancient therapeutic healing system which serves the individual, and does so through inviting transformation rather than by giving information.
To me, yoga is about union, the connection with everything.
The union of: Inhale and Exhale. Breath and Body. Strength and Surrender. Body and Mind. The Individual and Higher Consciousness... the list goes on!
Yoga means different things for different people, so progress on the path of yoga mustn't be restricted or limited to a particular ideal, as everyone experiences things differently in their own individual bodies, minds and at different times in their life. Each individual will receive different things from the same teaching based on their own perspective at that time - and this is ok!
