  1. Yoga practice is a personal taste,you can’t force any one to practice yoga, may be inspire some one to attend a class or two.Some people like desert others enjoy snacks,but yoga is combination of everything.We must have patience,focus and will to practice.Yoga adds spirituality,it has nothing to do with religion.Yoga poses and asanas are graceful but must practiced with deep yogic breathing.Pushing or pulling is not great.Grace of God is important and that reflects through sincerity and commitment.Yoga is a union with our ownself and then with others.
    In short yoga is a journey not a goal. Blessings, Veena Grover RYT

    • Thank you Veena Grover for you comment.
      You are right that yoga is a journey and no one can force anyother to practice it. You have to deeply want it or looking for it because you need it.
      I believe that yoga has the faculty to be whatever one persone is ready for achieve or needs to receive from yoga.
      If you approach yoga because you have a back pain, and you wish to relieve this suffering, yoga can be for you the medicine for it.
      If you are stress out and you need to relax, yoga might be the method for you to disconnect and relax.
      Instead if you would like to improve your fisical skils or flexibility, yoga might became for you the way to practice that.
      And when in your journey you are ready to experience spirituality, then yoga will became this for you, like magic.
      Like you said is a beautifull journey, that it comes from a deep inside need within ourselves.
      Blessings for you too.

        Antonio and Patricia,I see thing with more mutured way as compare to past 25 years.I was teaching Taekwondo after hard training ,I did attend lot of competions,seminars,workshops and felt to be aggressive to win and to move forward.American life is most of the time ‘Win, Win”After a while I realised,I am not teaching or learning to impress others,I wanted my fulfillment.Too much Ego and winning to llok better was there.I got couple of physical injuries,knees and shoulder.My loving husband searched An aNanda Yoga school [Expandinglight}i did learn a lot,became humble and realised my inside was empty,shallow and I was impressing others with Taekwondo moves and sparrings.To connect with my soul,I surrendered to God and yoga gurus to express them my ignorance about my life and success,which was superficial with Black Belts.I nneded real foundation and I did learn that from my Ananda yoga Guru, Nayaswami Gyandev ji, Director of Yoga Alliance.He taught me Forgiveness,humility,compassion ,living in the presence and moving forward.Awreness to my mind and feeling the goodness in others but not anger changed my life for better.That is my main goal of teaching yoga to guide others,yoga has deep philosophy,dig in and stay connected.Cruelty by others some time is good. Blessings
