Yoga is primarily a practice intended to make someone wiser…

As we’ve been introducing the eight limbs, you can see that there is so much more to yoga than the physical poses. This quote from T. K. V. Desikachar’s The Heart of Yoga sums it up really well.

“Yoga is primarily a practice intended to make someone wiser, more able to understand things than they were before. If Asanas help in this, terrific! If not, then some other means can be found instead.”


T. K. V. Desikachar’s The Heart of Yoga

Think about what your mind, body and emotional needs are today. If asana can help with this, amazing, but if not, could meditation or breath work help instead?
