What is Yoga?


In a recent interview, I was asked “what is yoga for you personally?”

Yoga, of course, is the sequence of postures and movements that is asana. It is the quiet transformation of pranayama. The stillness of meditation.

But, to me, yoga is also soso much more than that.

It is ever-evolving study of the self. It is philosophy and principle in action. It is bhakti, the embodiment of worship, and the expression of prayer.

Yoga is a creative artform. It is a vessel through which we may heal. And it is a science.

Combine all these things, and you will have yoga. In sanskrit, yoga translates to union. In life, it translates to love.
