Yoga as Teacher

“It (yoga) teaches us to take charge of our lives, purify our bodies, master our breath, control our turbulent minds, re-habituate ourselves and listen to the voice of our souls. It beckons us to come into the present moment, fully accepting reality rather than reacting to it, releasing our illusions and negative habits, surrendering our egos, prejudices, judgments, attachments, and aversions. Yoga guides us into alignment with the universal principles of life, teaching us that we are neither the body nor the mind. We are consciousness . . . tiny drops of consciousness in the vast, cosmic ocean of Pure Consciousness. At this level of Self-realization, with a vibrant body, mind and soul, one finds what most of us long for – contentment, deep well-being and inner peace.”
