Amit Ray Although yoga has its origins in ancient India, its methods and purposes are universal, relying not on cultural background, faith or deity, but simply on the individual. Yoga has become important in the lives of many contemporary Westerners, sometimes as a way of improving health and fitness of the body, but also as a means of personal and spiritual development. - Tara FraserYoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured. B.K.S. IyengarThe success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships. T.K.V. DesikacharWhen this body has been so magnificently and artistically created by God, it is only fitting that we should maintain it in good health and harmony by the most excellent and artistic science of Yoga. - Geeta IyengarThe practice of Yoga brings us face to face with the extraordinary complexity of our own being. Sri AurobindoTo perform every action artfully is yoga. Swami Kripalu.While doing yoga we are more ourselves, and more than ourselves. Valerie JeremijenkoYoga is a balancing factor, a substratum across all of your life, so you do not get shifted in one direction or another. It gives you freshness, gives you light, recharges your batteries. You become a stable person. You realize what balance is, what sukha is, what contentment is, what joy is. Birjoo Mehta...yoga is a path to undo the root of all types of misery through the direct experience of deep, clear, open awareness. Richard FreemanYoga's greatest gift is the vulnerability that fills your tender heart after a deep practice session and the spiritual strength that gives you the benefit of unflappable faith and devotion. Kino MacGregorYoga is the bringing together of that which was never separate. Richard MillerAsanas are a microcosm of life. They are miniature worlds filled with all the forms of the world at large. Our ability to thrive amidst those forms can be improved through the artful awareness developed in yoga practice. Sharon Gannon & David LifeTrue yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesnt care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied. Aadil PalkhivalaYoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in. And this is the point of spiritual practice; to make us teachable; to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are. Rolf GatesFor me, yoga is not just a workout its about working on yourself. Mary GloverYou cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state. Sharon GannonThe most important pieces of equipment you need for doing yoga are your body and your mind. Rodney YeeAny belief, whatever it is, is counterproductive in the context of the practice of yoga. One holds a belief instead of knowing. For example, you wouldnt say you believe in your right ear, since you know your ear, no belief is required. Believing always excludes knowing. When jnana (supreme knowledge) comes through the practice of yoga, you will know. Do not be satisfied with believing. Gregor Maehle
