Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.
Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience. We don't transcend our lives; we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.
Yoga is like music: the rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life.
Yoga is the practice of quieting the mind.
You 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.
You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state.
The 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.
When you inhale, you are taking the strength from God. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world.
Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they're meant to be.
The most important pieces of equipment you need for doing yoga are your body and your mind.
I cannot always control what goes on outside. But I can always control what goes on inside.
Yoga is not a religion. It is a science, science of well-being, science of youthfulness, science of integrating body, mind, and soul.
Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.
Healthy plants and trees yield abundant flowers and fruits. Similarly, from a healthy person, smiles and happiness shine forth like the rays of the sun.
Giving to others is the greatest gift you can give yourself.
Don't move the way fear makes you move. Move the way love makes you move. Move the way joy makes you move.
The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this lifetime.
Move, but don't move the way fear makes you move.
Action is movement with intelligence. The world is filled with movement. What the world needs is more conscious movement, more action.
Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.
