Practice and all is coming
K. Pattabhi jois
Yoga literally translates from Sanskrit as union. It is the union of individual consciousness or soul with the Universal Consciousness or Spirit. If all that seems a bit complicated then it need not be.
My interpretation of Yoga is simply about being present, more connected and living in the moment. Although many people think of yoga purely as a physical exercise where people twist, turn and stretch in the most complex ways, these are actually only the most superficial aspect of this profound practice. Yoga is so much more than being able to touch your toes or stand on your head, although it's always fun to try!
