The Skill of Teaching
Yoga practiced as a Sadhana (spiritual practice) gives multiple benefits, physically, mentally and spiritually. Yoga regards the individual in its totality, as a whole, not just as a physical body, or just as an ungrounded mind, or just as a disembodied spirit. Peace and health happen when the individual is in harmony with him or herself, when he is able to perceive himself as one with all, and consequently his actions and feelings are governed by this realization. Yoga brings about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
