We create the space for the body with the Yoga Asanas. Lengthening, stretching, rotating, twisting, pushing, pulling, balancing. Is that what Sage Patanjai meant with Yoga, or the old sages like Vasistha or Yajnavalkya? The body control, yes, but where the mind dwells in the Yoga practice? Are we able to hear the breathing, sense the energy flow inside the nadis – energy channels? Are we able to sense the holiness, the quiet force of the Universe?
