Yoga connects you to your inner spirit. The purpose of doing the poses is to free your body from any tension or stress that you might be feeling so you can more successfully get centered within. There is a part of you that is greater than your mind and body, it is the spirit within. It is designed to enhance vitality and a sense of well being. Yoga means “to bring together or merge” as in joining the mind and body into a single harmonious unit.
The body is lazy, the mind is vibrant and the soul is luminous. Yogic practices help develop the mind so the body and mind both become vibrant and are drawn towards the light of the soul. It is a science which liberates one’s mind from bondage, when the mind reaches and merges with the soul the soul is free and remains thereafter in peace and beatitude.
