Union. A way to truly bring ourselves back to ourselves. There are many layers of Yoga, and each individual can choose which layer they would like to work at or on. Aligning the physical body gives access  to aligning our internal realm. Working through asana (poses) sometimes held and other times fluidly moving through we create freedom, and space for breath to flow and the body to find ease in strength. A gateway is created to align further if you wish, the ability to go into sense withdrawal (Pratyahara). Our Yoga practice guides us to find the ability to sit for our meditations with comfort. Wherever you are, Yoga gives the ability to gain physical, mental, and emotional strength and unite these to create the ultimate union: individual and universal spirit. We all hold our own key to our happiness, fulfillment and harmony, just as true we need the tools to keep that key to continuously unlock the door to our true selves. Namaste.
