Imagine entering a yoga class to try to deal with some issue in your life.
Perhaps you feel stressed, or you have some physical pain you want to relieve. Maybe you just want to stretch out and come into better alignment with your physical self. As you breathe and move, easing into the depths of the moment, you begin to recognize a connection to something greater—a breath that is breathing you, a rhythm that is moving through your body. As Shiva Rea says, this is the power of yoga to transform our lives. In this video clip, Shiva reveals how exploring a simple act in yoga can lead us to profound awakening.
