"Don't practice yoga to get better at yoga; practice yoga to get better at living"
Remember a time when you were bursting with energy, curiosity and creativity. When your body felt strong and flexible free of any aches and pains. An active yoga practice will help you feel that way again and you will feel invigorated, infused with a new sense of aliveness and possibility capable of new ways of thinking and feelings. Hatha yoga is an ancient system of physical postures and breathing exercises which has today become one of the most popular mind body systems for a healthy, supple body and a peaceful mind.
"99% Practice, 1% Theory"
-- K. Pattabhi Jois (Asthanga Yoga Guru)
