What is Yoga to You?

To me? Yoga is nothing and everything. Yoga is building strength and accepting weakness. Yoga is gaining confidence and giving up pride. Yoga is inspiration and realization.

Sometimes the road to truth can be overwhelming.  Discovering a truth is really like turning on a lightbulb.  The moment the truth unveils itself to us happens in a flash.  We see clearly; we understand; we sometimes berate ourselves for not having learned it faster. The instant of understanding happens in a flash, but the […]
