Yoga Quotes

When I approached God at that time, I hardly had a living faith in Him. The agnostic was in me, the atheist was in me, the sceptic was in me and I was not absolutely sure that there was a God at all. I did not feel His presence. Yet something drew me to the truth of the Vedas, the truth of the Gita, the truth of the Hindu religion. I felt there must be a mighty truth somewhere in this Yoga, a mighty truth in this religion based on the Vedanta.

Sri Aurobindo

For the one who is moderate in eating, recreation, working, sleeping, and waking, this yoga [of meditation] destroys [all] sorrow.

Bhagavad Gita

Yoga is really trying to liberate us from ... shame about our bodies. To love your body is a very important thing -- I think the health of your mind depends on your being able to love your body.

Rodney Yee

The Self in you is the same as the Self Universal. Whatever powers are manifested throughout the world, those powers exist in germ, in latency, in you.... If you realize the unity of the Self amid the diversities of the Not-Self, then Yoga Will not seem an impossible thing to you.

Annie Wood Besant

What yoga philosophy and all the great Buddhist teachings tells us is that solidity is a creation of the ordinary mind and that there never was anything permanent to begin with that we could hold on to. Life would be much easier and substantially less painful if we lived with the knowledge of impermanence as the only constant.

Donna Farhi

The meaning of our self is not to be found in its separateness from God and others, but in the ceaseless realisation of yoga, of union; not on the side of the canvas where it is blank, but on the side where the picture is being painted.

Rabindranath Tagore

This yoga should be practiced with firm determination and perseverance, without any mental reservation or doubts.

Bhagavad Gita

This yoga is not possible, for the one who eats too much, or who does not eat at all; who sleeps too much, or who keeps awake.

Bhagavad Gita

Yoga has a sly, clever way of short-circuiting the mental patterns that cause anxiety.

Baxter Bell

Yoga is invigoration in relaxation. Freedom in routine. Confidence through self control. Energy within and energy without.

Ymber Delecto

Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are.

Jason Crandell

Yoga is bodily gospel.

Reaven Fields

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

Breadbaking is one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world's sweetest smells... there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel, that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread

M.F.K. Fisher

Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience. We don't transcend our lives; we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.
