“You do not need to seek freedom in some distant land, for it exists within your body, heart, mind and soul.” B.K.S. Iyengar, Founder of Iyengar Yoga

Other benefits of yoga:
“Physical health is not a commodity to be bargained for.  Nor can it be  swallowed in the forms of drugs and pills.  It has to be earned through sweat. It is something that we must build up.  You have to create within yourself the experience of beauty,  liberation and infinity.  This is health.  Healthy plants and trees yield abundant flowers and fruits.  Similarly from a healthy person, smiles and happiness shine forth like the rays of the sun”. B.K.S.Iyengar
