In the end, yoga is not about the postures that we practice on our mats. The postures, and the grander practice they are a part of, are a series of opportunities to connect to the light that lives deep within our hearts. They are opportunities to perhaps move through darkness towards that deep inner light. (Always continue moving; the light may be buried quite deep, but it is certainly there.) They are also opportunities to allow this light to radiant out from within. After practicing on our mats we practice carrying this light into our communities and into our world. We practice connecting to the world from inner light to inner light.
