To whom it may concern,
There’s a quote, “yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”
I believe it provides an answer to the tough question- really, what is yoga anyway???
Though, the longer I do this ‘yoga’ thing, the less sure I am.
But I do feel sure that it is an exploration. A deep sea diving expedition. A pilgrimage. An uncovering, detangling, meander towards the self.
Where you slowly gather more sense of who you are. And this yoga practice of asana isn’t just being a triangle, or being an eagle. Nor is it strengthening and lengthening. The physical yoga practice of asana is brushing off the dust and covers and cobwebs, feeling something good become unearthed.
A little more self, emerging.
