Yoga is not about the pose.
It’s not the alignment of toes or hips or shoulders.
It’s not about the form.
Yoga is an invitation to explore, not a command performance.
It speaks the language of the soul.
In the flow of breath and motion,
yoga coaxes us from the confines of the known,
across the silent threshold into vastness.
Yoga is the union of prayer and movement, guided from inside.
It is healing and the joy of saying yes to life.
Breathe, relax and feel the body receive its own truth.
The seed of freedom flowers within each of us whenever
we are open to what’s real.
