Sooth and Calm the Mind

“Free the mind of stress and become filled with calm and tranquillity.” BKS Iyengar

The yoga poses, while appearing to deal with the physical body alone, work specific parts of the body to sooth and relax the mind.
The prolonged practice of yoga will, in time, lead the student to a sense of peace and a feeling of being at one with his or her environment.

“With serenity one then experiences the self by the self, and rests the self in the lap of the soul.” BKS Iyengar
