Yoga Journal has been running an interview on the back page of each issue for a while now. This issue’s interview is with Aadil Palkhivala. Here’s my favorite part. Italics are mine.
Ninety percent of yoga asana is a waste of time. The asana must be done to prepare the body to hold the light of the soul. Most people just want all of the stuff the ego likes: a firm body and ways to impress people. We should be striving to find a real connection with the Divine.
I love that.
