What is Yoga?

Happy International Yoga Day!  Here we are once again at the summer solstice, a day of light, and the official start of summer.  It’s a day we’ve chosen to celebrate and share yoga all over the world! But, what is yoga really?

Yoga is a lot more than the postures it’s been turning into.  Yoga is a tool.  It’s a means of teaching us how to manage and direct our attention, it’s a tool to learn how to change our reactions, responses, and actions.  Yoga is a connection.  Yoga is a meditation.  Yoga is uniting our soul.  It’s skill in action.  It’s equanimity.  Yoga is a set of practices.  It’s an exploration.  Yoga is about getting to know our self, our inner nature, and change our habits.  Yoga is a way to disconnect from suffering.  It’s a way to grow stronger and gain clarity.  It’s a way to transform.

Most of all, yoga is a practice.  It’s not about a posture.  It’s about a deeper connection.

So today, take a moment to practice.  Take a moment to breathe.  Take a moment to connect.
