YOGA MYTHS Myth 1: Yoga is a religion Yoga is a technology. Anybody who is willing to make use of it can make use of it. Myth 2: Yoga practice means you need to put your body into pretzel like positions. Most people only think of asanas when you say yoga . Many people have chosen to represent yoga with only the physical aspect. In the yogic system, there is very little significance given to asanas. For a little over two hundred Yoga Sutras, only one sutra is dedicated to asanas. With yoga practice, we want human beings to start their journey with the body but move towards their inner nature. The yogic system is a subtle manipulation of your system to allow it to rise to a different level. Yoga means that which allows you to attain to your higher nature. Every asana, every mudra, every way of breathing – everything – is focused towards this. Myth 3: Yoga is great exercise Yoga is not just exercise, because it has other dimensions attached to it. If hatha yoga is taught in a proper atmosphere, it is a fantastic process of shaping your system into a fabulous device to receive the Divine. Myth 4: Yoga should be done in front of a mirror and with music If you want to get the involvement of that which is the source of creation within you, your body, your mind, your energy must be absolutely involved. You should approach it with a certain reverence and certain focus. Myth 5: Need a yoga study guide? You can learn yoga from a book. Many people have caused immense damage to themselves by learning yoga through books. It seems to be very simple, but when you do it, you will see it is a very subtle aspect. This has to be done with perfect understanding and proper guidance. Without this, one can get into deep trouble. A book can inspire you, but it is not meant to teach a practice. Myth 6: Yoga is something you practice every day One must become yoga. If it’s morning-evening yoga, the rest of the time entanglement – this is not yoga, this is only yoga practice. There is no aspect of life which is excluded from the yogic process. If your life becomes yoga, then you can do everything.
