Yoga is zoveel meer dan alleen de fysieke beoefening. Yoga verandert de manier waarop we denken, voelen, ons tot de natuur en tot anderen verhouden en daarmee de manier waarop we leven. Er is al zo ontzettend veel geschreven over yoga. En tegelijkertijd kan je yoga alleen maar begrijpen door het te ervaren. De beoefening zorgt voor inzichten, niet andersom. Die inzichten zijn soms bijna niet in tekst te vangen. We hopen jullie met deze 25 (Engelse) quotes over yoga en alles wat daar mee verbonden is te inspireren en te motiveren in jullie practise. Enjoy :)
