“Yoga is not a religion.It is a philosophy and a spiritual science.”
Jennie Lee, Author of “True Yoga”.
“Yoga is not a work-out it is a work-in, and this is the point of spiritual practice to make us teachable to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.” ~ Seattle Yoga News
