Yoga is the Science of the Body
The benefits of Yoga practice are physical, mental and emotional. Regular practice allows breath (Pranayama) & body awareness (Asana). The Eight Limbs path is a philosophical discipline and approach to living our lives; The study of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Hindu Mythology, single-minded focus (Drishti) and complete equanimity of all sensory input (Dhyana) guide us in managing the self, the spirit.
Yoga is more than the pose. It is the artful skilled mastery of flowing in our transitions.
