Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity.  This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization.  Yoga means union – the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul.  Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day-to-day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions.  ~B.K.S. Iyengar, Astadala Yogamala

Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured. ~B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory. ~Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois

You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state. ~Sharon Gannon

Yoga exists in the world because everything is linked ~Desikashar

When the breath wanders the mind also is unsteady. But when the breath is calmed the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath. ~Hatha Yoga Pradipika
