Separateness causes suffering and union creates freedom

Yoga is union,

It is the separation from Self, each other, nature, and from something greater or higher (be it God, universal consciousness, or whatever term you want to use) that causes the anxiety and chaos symptomatic of our times.

It is difficult for us to experience our natural connection with each other when we don't have that connection with our own self.

Yoga connects us with an inner wisdom, in which there is no doubt as to the connection of all things.

Now is the time for yoga.

Yoga is a practical method of bringing peace and connectedness back into our lives.

Because we are a reflection of our nervous system, the state of nervous system dictates how we experience the world.

If the nervous system is fresh and rested, the body will be healthy and the mind alert and comprehensive.

As a result, our thought will be powerful and clear and our actions, which are manifested thought, will be successful and rewarding.

Yoga strengthens and purifies the nervous system so it can reflect a greater degree of consciousness and our lives can become an increasingly positive force in the world.

If the methods are practiced correctly the whole nervous system is revitalized, the body enjoys better health and more energy, the mind is rested and freed from the endless burdensome thought of future and past, and perception is restored to its primal freshness.

We can actually gain back the connection to Self and others as we are released from the restricted thinking, dull mind, and negativity resulting from a strained, tired nervous system.

The healthier our nervous system, the healthier our body, mind, thoughts and actions.

Yoga helps you rise to the challenge of living.
