If you’ve been following the blog during our first few months, you’ll have realised that we’re passionate about all aspects of yoga. We believe it can change your body, mind and spirit for the better.
We’re glad to be part of a worldwide family of yoga lovers that includes expert practitioners, novices and people who just like the idea (our picture of the stone frog in violas was taken at Petals from the Past, in Alabama). The yoga community is chock-full of characterful, inspirational people. Today we’re sharing a few of our favourite quotes from other lovers of yoga about the power it has to transform lives.
Yoga is a powerful vehicle for change. As you build strength you start to believe in your own potential.
– Tiffany Cruikshank
True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming.
– Aadil Palkhivala
The body benefits from movement, and the mind benefits from stillness.
– Sakyong Mipham
Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit broken pieces together.
Yoga is a light which once lit, will never dim. The better your practice the brighter your flame.
– B.K.S. Iyengar
When you listen to yourself, everything comes naturally. It comes from inside, like a kind of will to do something. Try to be sensitive. That is yoga.
Yoga is not a religion. It is a science: science of well-being, science of youthfulness, science of integrating body, mind and soul.
Exercises are like prose, whereas yoga is the poetry of movements. Once you understand the grammar of yoga, you can write your poetry of movements.
– Amit Ray
Yoga, as a way of life and a philosophy, can be practiced by anyone with inclination to undertake it, for yoga belongs to humanity as a whole. It is not the property of any one group or any one individual, but can be followed by any and all, in any corner of the globe, regardless of class, creed or religion.
– Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois
