One cannot find self realisation using yoga (āsana) exercise groups #yoga

on December 15, 2016

The whole point of yoga is to contain mental activity.  We use āsana to begin training the mind, in groups there is too much distraction, causing mental affliction (kleśas).  Yoga is to be practised in private, by one’s self, in the same place and at the same time every day, creating a sacred place and time, and commitment to the relationship with yoga. Then, the student can begin the journey of studying themselves.
