After all, yoga is a lot more than just a workout it’s a lifestyle.
Sharon Gannon once said “You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.”
The ones who have experienced the true essence of yoga do accept, that it is the perfect experience of bliss they got to know.
But for newbies, it is a challenge.
And by the way, it’s not just yoga.
I don’t know is it for the good or bad but human mind and body do resist everything new. Be it new diet plan, workout routine, leave alone lifestyle we even resist our new pajamas for christ sake.
As every new thing takes time to get settled and integrated into our existing lifestyle pattern so is yoga. All it needs is a bit discipline and consistency.
And for those this ‘new thing’ is Yoga. My dear, you are up for the world best high evolution has ever produced.
To start with here are my best-selected yoga quotes which always works for me.
To be honest they are not just for motivation. In fact, I got to know more about yoga by just these quotes than any other published book on the subject.
So just lean back, scroll and enjoy the show.
