I love yoga. I love its physical, mental, subtle, philosophical and spiritual aspects in equal measure. Most people who have a deep love for yoga can identify with the feeling of yoga making a shift in their life-path.

Yoga is the union of mind and body. When you come to a yoga class or come to practice on your mat it may be the only time that day that you check in with what it feels like to be you. Yoga teaches us to be self aware to connect to the breath and to be in the present moment.
Meditation has been part of the human experience for several thousand years, but it may be now that it is most needed. It's central to improving our quality of life; making us aware of who we are, where we are and what we want from our lives.
Transformation generally happens when we allow change to happen; stepping outside of our comfort zone we begin to grow and learn about ourselves. It won’t happen overnight, but like our asana practice, it is exactly that - a practice in patience and self-discovery.
