Practicing yoga is like practicing freedom. Freedom from stress, negativity, petty things, and especially self imposed limitations. After much consistent practice that freedom you feel during/after yoga starts to spill into ALL the other hours of the day and it is a great feeling when that happens. Even just 20 min. a day makes a huge impact but 1-2 longer practices per week is what has made all the difference for me. Keep practicing BVSMurthy : )


Well said! Yoga brings a sweetness to life, and your essay makes it very clear.


Another great book to read about living your yoga daily is author and yogi Donna Farhi "Bringing yoga to life"


you have well brought out the point that every one of us practice asana, pranayama etc for one or two hours and forget about it and get nvolved in our daily ativities,butthe effect of yoga is there for may be an hour or so but whole day we are back to square one and have added enough stress and we realy feel surprised what happend to the practice of every day.Can you please elaborate how to treat every movement as asana and every brath as pranayama etc.please reply to


glad you mentionned Sri Aurobindo, my guide.
You have all the answers to your questions...just read his books, and meditate.

The big questions are: why is not everybody in the world practicing? Why do we all accept this sick-making society as a normal way of living? And why are we not able to change the American of 'not really living'?

by connecting all our separate selves into one and connecting it with one true Self - atman
