Short intro for What is Yoga ?
Yoga is technology for arriving in this moment. It is a means of waking up from our spiritual amnesia, so that we can remember all that we already know. It is way of remembering our true nature, which is essentially joyful and peaceful. Developed as a pragmatic science by ancient seers centuries ago, yoga is practice that any person, regardless of age, sex , race, or religious belief, can use to realize her full potential. It is a means of staying in intimate communication with the formative core matrix of yourself and those forces that serve to bind all the livings beings together. As you establish and sustain this intimate communication, this state of equanimity becomes the core of your experience rather than the rare exception.
Through observing nature and through intense self observation and inquiry, the ancient yogis were able to codify the conditions that must be present for realizing our intrinsic wholeness. Although such realization can occur spontaneously, more often than not it is the result of a sustained commitment to practice over a lifetime. This is not to imply that yoga is a goal which strive toward, or that there is some kind of chronological progression toward self improvement Rather it is recognition that each individual can achieve understanding only through his own exploration and discovery, that all of life is a continual process of refinement which allows us to see more clearly.
