"Yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations of consciousness" (Yoga Sutra I:2, Patanjali, 2nd Century BCE). By appropriately combining asana (physical exercises), meditation and breathing techniques you will experience a dramatic change in attitude that leads to overall health betterment. Naturally occurring benefits of a consistent personal yoga practice include diet change, dropping of bad habits, sound sleep and a clear mind. You will even find yourself using therapeutic yoga techniques with no or limited physical exertion for dramatic results. But everyone and every body is different, so you can research all you want, and you should, but in the end you need to find a comfortable, supportive environment that helps reveal your individual potential.
