And the duty to hand in Yoga is to discover union—between brain and physique, among the person and her God, among our suggestions and the resource of our strategies, among instructor and pupil, or even among ourselves and our occasionally hard-to-bend buddies. within the West, we’ve mostly come to grasp Yoga via its now-famous pretzel-like workouts for the physique, yet this is often purely Hatha Yoga, one limb of the philosophy.
