What is yoga?

Means to become one. Seeking oneness beyond all the limitation of the body, emotion and thought. Everything becomes one. Anything that leads to inclusiveness, anything that leads to help experience life in a large way then it is, is yoga. Yoga means that you sit here and the whole life becomes you.

Yoga is developing an eye that which not contaminated by memory, an eye that is not perverted by your memory, an eye which simply sees everything the way it is. This eye will see those things which do not stop light.

Yoga is not about being superhuman; it is about realizing that being human is super.

Your body is like a barometer. If you know how to read it, it can tell you everything about you and the world around you. The body never lies. So in yoga, we learn to trust the body. We transform the physical body from a series of compulsions of flesh, blood, and hormones into a conscious process, a powerful instrument of perception and knowing. If you know how to read the body, it can tell you your potential, your limitations, even your past, present, and future.

I have never touched any substance, but if you look into my eyes you will see that I am always stoned. I am totally drunk and fully aware. This is one of the pleasures that the science of yoga offers.

Yoga means to experience the mental and physical process distinctly, not as the basis of yourself, but as that which is caused by you. If you manage these two instruments of body and mind consciously, then your experience of life is one hundred percent of your making. All you need to do is create a distance between you and everything that you accumulated from outside.

The purpose of yoga is to activate your energy system in such a way that your body consciousness is constantly being lowered, so you can sit here in the body, but are no longer the body.
