10 Top Reasons to take Yoga

The reasons for practicing yoga as presented in this video, run the risk of elitism by tone inside the western (outside of India) yoga community. Yet, the contents in the video do however, present very valuable information for everyone. In particular, for those who have never taken a yoga class. Starting with a reputable teacher, trained in the traditional roots of this experience is VERY important, and the only place to begin. Otherwise one does miss what I believe is ultimately the intended context present, in the commitment: Yoga, is a way of life.

From the development of one's daily experiences, beginning with exposure to this discipline through a good teacher, one learns what is meant and yet cannot ever be fully explained in words. Why? Because yoga facilitates the journey into the vast internal mystery of which we all are.

Try a good class at your level of flexibility. Expose yourself to meditation and pranayama experiences, and keep coming back to the mat.

Remember, the only true guru is the internal one always, always, always.
