“Yoga is a light, which once lit will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter your flame.” – B.K.S. Iyengar

“True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived.

“Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are” — Jason Crandell

“Yoga is not for the flexible. It’s for the willing.”

“Yoga is 99% practice and 1% theory.” — Sri K. Pattabhi Jois

“The very heart of yoga practice is ‘abyhasa’ – steady effort in the direction you want to go.” –Sally Kempton
