To live spiritually is to live in the present moment. Yoga helps us to become more aware of the present moment, of the alignment of movement and breath.
- Paramhansa Yogananda
The ancient yogic technique converts the breath into mind. By spiritual advancement, one is able to recognize the breath as an act of mind—a dream-breath. Yoga enables the devotee to switch off or on, at will. Attaining this power of sense-disconnection, the yogi finds it simple to unite his mind at will with divine realms or with the world of matter.
- B. K. S. Iyengar
The practice of yoga helps the lazy body to become active and vibrant. It transforms the mind, making it harmonious. Yoga helps to keep one’s body and mind in tune with the essence, the soul, so that all three are blended into one.
- André Van Lysebeth
Just as a handful of pearls does not make a necklace unless the pearls are pierced and connected by a thread, likewise a succession of asanas becomes a series only if the breath links them together. Of course, the breath must be accompanied by mental awareness.
- Alain Daniélou
Yoga is a technique which by means of introspection, man learns to know himself. He is able to silence the digressions of his thought, to pass beyond the limits of his senses and go back to the deep sources of life. Contact is made with the invisible powers hidden within himself, as in all aspects of the created, which constitute the deepest nature of the living being.
Practice purity in thought, word and deed, be satisfied and happy with what you have and do not covet more, come to know yourself and to act within the movement of life; these are the rules of life that Yoga offers.
