The Sweetness of Yoga

Splitting Yogi photo by BameSanah88

Yoga is an art, a science, and a philosophy. It touches the life of people at every level, physical, mental, and spiritual. It is a practical method for making one’s life purposeful, useful, and noble.

As honey is sweet from any part of the honeycomb, so is yoga. It enables every part of the human system to become attuned to its essence, the conscious seer within. Yoga alone enables the practitioner to perceive and experience the world within and around herself, to touch the divine joy of all creation, and then to share that nectar of divine wealth and happiness with her fellow beings.
