Great article. Iyengar has influenced my practice immensely (mainly due to my scoliosis) but I find the philosophy sits well with me. We have to have awareness and I'm so grateful that a continued yoga practice has helped me create that and I am grateful to be able to share that with others.


We live in a world that has drowned us with NOISE. We have lost our balance, our silence. I have now found the tools that allow me to connect my spirit, and mind. Thank you for this article. I now must continue to seek more of this "truth".


the balance between material and spiritual life is just what we need today!! awsm.

I totally agree with all the explanations given for a harmonious existence. The article, through aptly chosen words, explains how our body, mind, spirit and brain can come to equilibrium by making them talk to each other constantly. I see that it helps to understand how 0ur body is not separate from our internal emotions and feelings, but it interprets how we are connected with our inner selves.

Just wonderful!


What a wonderful article! I am definitely going to get the book. I do sometimes just go through the motions and this showed me that it is basically useless to do it that way.
