Yoga is our nature.




Yoga is our nature. The sacred scriptures are written into our DNA (B.K.S. Iyengar wrote a sentence like this.). So I practice yoga to know myself better. Other texts and teachers can be helpful when the timing is right, but practice alone reveals beyond what is already known.

it's impossible to know Yoga and not practice, I always think that Yoga is something inside us already is only a flower to be open, it's already in our DNA, this is real.

This IS great! Very thought provoking. What is the practice though? Is it the asanas? Seems like it's much more than the physical practice only. Not sure how most American-style yoga really gets one to know oneself, especially any knowing outside the physical realm.
