Yoga is a profound integrative practice to heal your body, mind, and spirit. Here are just a few of the healing benefits:
Even if yoga only enhanced physical fitness, the time spent in practice would be fully worthwhile. However, yoga offers much more than just a way to exercise the body: It gives us a way to enter the timeless, spaceless world of spirit . . . to connect with our Divine inner being. As stated in The Yoga Sutras, “Yoga is the settling of the mind into silence. When the mind has settled, we are established in our essential nature, which is unbounded consciousness.”
In this unbounded state, we experience freedom from suffering. No longer identifying ourselves with our ego, we let go of our attachment to temporary conditions ― whether a relationship, a job, our body, or a material possession. We remember our essential spiritual nature and life becomes joyful, meaningful, and carefree.
